By José Saramago

La novela perdida de José Saramago. Donde todo comenzó...

Amanece en Lisboa. En una mañana de mediados del siglo XX, l. a. mirada del novelista se asoma a los angeles ventana de un vecindario. Se anuncia un día no muy diferente de los demás: el zapatero Silvestre, que abre su taller; Adriana, que parte hacia el trabajo mientras en su casa tres mujeres inician otra jornada de costura; Justina, que tiene ante sí un largo día jalonado por las disputas con su brutal marido; los angeles mantenida Lidia; y los angeles española Carmen, sumida en nostalgias...

Discretamente, l. a. mirada del novelista va descendiendo y, de repente, deja de ser easy testigo para ver con los ojos de cada uno de los personajes. Capítulo a capítulo, salta de casa en casa, de personaje en personaje, abriéndonos un mundo gobernado por los angeles necesidad, las grandes frustraciones, las pequeñas ilusiones, l. a. nostalgia de tiempos que ni siquiera fueron mejores. Todo cubierto por el silencio tedioso de l. a. dictadura, l. a. música de Beethoven y una pregunta de Pessoa: ¿Deberemos ser todos casados, fútiles, tributables?

Saramago terminó de escribir Claraboya a los treinta y un años y entregó el manuscrito a una editorial de l. a. que solo obtuvo respuesta cuarenta años más tarde, cuando period un escritor consagrado. l. a. escritura minuciosa y paciente retrata con maestría una época marcada por los angeles desesperanza. Claraboya anticipa de un modo deslumbrante los elementos del universo Saramago, así como las virtudes que serán el germen de tantas obras maestras. En el texto se oye l. a. voz de José Saramago, se reconocen sus personajes, se identifican los angeles lucidez y los angeles compasión que según los angeles Academia Sueca distinguen su obra.

La crítica ha dicho...
«En todas las almas, como en todas las casas, además de fachada, hay un inside escondido.»
Raul Brandaõ

«Claraboya es un retrato luminoso sobre una época sombría; un regalo, porque los lectores pueden saciar los angeles necesidad de seguir leyéndole.»
Pilar del Río, traductora y presidenta de l. a. Fundación Saramago

«El unique estaba completo. Se ha podido publicar el libro sin ningún tipo de interferencia; no le falta nada, ni un bocado. Es una novela interesantísima, con un gran número de personajes, muy elocuente y bien narrada.»
Zeferino Coelho, editor portugués de José Saramago

«Tal vez exista alguna ingenuidad en los angeles elaboración de este libro, pero yo prefiero llamarla luminosidad, transparencia, y se lo agradezco. El dispositivo narrativo es, como siempre, potente y unique. Una vez más demuestra poseer el don que le hizo inconfundible y único.»
Inés Pedrosa, escritora

«Un relato sencillo y divertido, con l. a. fuerza y los angeles profundidad que han definido todo el trabajo posterior de Saramago. En Claraboya nos encontramos una mirada irónica, afilada y precisa sobre las relaciones humanas, y nos sorprende l. a. confianza con los angeles que el jovenescritor es capaz de buscar en el inside de estos personajes memorables.»

James made no substantive textual changes in the New York Edition of Wings comparable, for example, to what he did with The Portrait of a Lady, in which he made significant alterations, including most notably changes in the novel舗s ending, or with some of the other works that he drastically revised. In Wings, in addition to correcting mistakes, he sharpened the language of the text, by substituting more active and concrete images, and made his symbols more truly poetic. This Barnes & Noble Classics edition is based on the 1909 New York Edition and incorporates a small number of additional editorial changes made by subsequent scholars.

In demonstrating the force of her character by showing how she affects the others, James dramatizes her the more, just as he does with the figure of Mrs. Newsome in The Ambassadors (who never actually appears in the novel). Milly舗s presence is powerfully felt even in her absence. She animates the other characters; they are at first preoccupied with trying to figure her out and then they scheme to use her for their own purposes. Her seeming victimhood is demonstrated by the way the others constantly plot behind her back.
