Overview

¿Qué sucede cuando Tertuliano Máximo Afonso descubre a sus treinta y ocho años que en su ciudad vive un individuo que es su copia exacta y con el que no le une ningún vínculo de sangre? Ése es el interrogante que Saramago, explorando de nuevo las profundidades del alma, plantea en El hombre duplicado.
¿Cómo saber quiénes somos? ¿En qué consiste la identidad? ¿Qué nos define como personas individuales y únicas? ¿Podemos asumir que nuestra voz, nuestros rasgos, hasta la mínima marca distintiva, se repitan en otra persona? ¿Podríamos intercambiarnos con nuestro doble sin que nuestros allegados lo percibiesen?
Innovando frente a las convenciones de la novela, Saramago convierte la voz narradora en sujeto activo, en un juego metaliterario que pone al servicio de la historia y que va mucho más allá de las rupturas estrictamente formales. Una novela que se lee con la avidez de un relato de intriga pero que nos sumerge en las cuestiones esenciales de la vida.

José Saramago (Azinhaga, 1922), Premio Nobel de Literatura 1998, es uno de los novelistas portugueses más conocidos y apreciados en el mundo entero. En España, a partir de la primera publicación de El año de la muerte de Ricardo Reis, en 1985, su trabajo literario merece la mejor acogida de los lectores y de la crítica. Además del presente volumen, otros títulos importantes son Manual de pintura y caligrafía, Casi un objeto, Historia del cerco de Lisboa, La balsa de piedra, Memorial del convento, El Evangelio según Jesucristo, Todos los nombres, Levantado del suelo, Ensayo sobre la ceguera, La caverna y Cuadernos de Lanzarote. Alfaguara ha publicado también el libro de viajes Viaje a Portugal y el relato breve El cuento de la isla desconocida. Desde 1993 José Saramago vive en Lanzarote, España.

Editorial Reviews

Criticas
Portuguese writer Saramago received the Nobel Prize for literature in 1998 for such outstanding novels as Historia del cerco de Lisboa (The Siege of Lisboa, Alfaguara, 1999) and Ensayo sobre la ceguera (On Blindness, Alfaguara, 2001). In this newest addition to his philosophical fiction, he tells the story of a lonely and ordinary professor of history, Tertuliano M ximo Afonso, who, while watching a comedy on video, discovers that he has a double. Intrigued, Tertuliano finds his twin and gives him a call. From then on everything, even the narrator's voice, duplicates and mixes as irony leads to tragedy. Captivating as the story is, the doppelganger theme has already been exhausted, from Plautus to Jorge Luis Borges, and has been an especially cherished motif in Portuguese literature (Machado de Assis, Luis Vaz de Camoes, Jose Antonio Brandao). Saramago himself has already explored the subject of identity and otherness in Todos los nombres (All the Names, Alfaguara, 2001), with better results. But even though this novel is a minor work in his canon, Saramago is a master, and it shows in the luxurious language and paced control of nuances that make his clones different while dreadfully alike; his technique dazzles. While some readers will consider this book a deep and stylish meditation, others will find it a slow repetition of a common literary theme. Recommended for public and academic libraries, and bookstores.

    Excelente

    Uno de los mejores que he leido en los ultimos tiempos, Saramago es un genio, plantea una situacion que pareceria absurda pero perfectamente posible, la dualidad en cada uno de nosotros es algo que la presenta de una manera extraordinaria, mi personaje favorito es 'el sentido comun'. Espero encontrar pronto un libro que me satisfaga tanto como este.
