    The Power of Arts

    Although the novel begins as an entity barricaded inside its own language and style just like death with a small letter that inhabits its pages, it soon opens up to the reader and allows him/her to break its codes. José Saramago comments on the individual's psyche as well as the collective one with his tongue in his cheek employing magical realism and bizarre stylistics. While the first half of the book is about death and the reactions to its absence whether social, economic, political, theological, and more, the second half is what caught my heart. Is it about the power of Arts and music and how they can immortalize the artist making him invulnerable to annihilation? Is the artist capable of interrupting the forgetfulness of death or is he in agreement with it? A book worth reading.
