    1. The lengthy procession very slowly walks along the winding path, down on the muddy road, in the valley, as the cold , misty morning rain, pours unceasingly from above, obscuring them, the streams overflow, the umbrellas help little, thoroughly drenched, they do not notice, nobody speaks, some men are in uniforms of various colors and designs, one young man nearly collapses, the women in dark clothing, and continue in the endless journey, step by monotonous step, then climbing into the clouds, as [...]

N o se iludam a pensar que esta uma hist ria de amor rom ntico, sofrido, entre dois seres fadados ao desgosto.Amaro era um padre de car ter duvidoso, que abra ou o sacerd cio por imposi o familiar e n o por voca o, e Am lia, podia ser ing nua mas tinha no o do pecado que estavam a cometer e vacilava vista das contrariedades.O que E a grandioso e acutilante E a aqui nos tr s uma ac rrima cr tica, n o religi o cat lica e aos dogmas da igreja, mas a uma certa franja do clero que subvertia esses val [...]

    3. Quoting Ramalho Ortig o The book of Mr E a de Queir s offers us the first example of a work of art suggested by consideration of a problem And yet The Crime of Father Amaro is in no way a criticism of the book, is a pure art book in the highest sense of the word the drama begins, unfolds and ends in one breath, walking to their outcome, right, ruthless, as a trace scratched by fate, through that narrow province of life, to its local gossip, their petty characters, their priests, their butts, the [...]

    4. Esta novela naci con complicaciones en la d cada de 1870 en Portugal Primero apareci fraccionada en un peri dico y pas bastante desapercibida Aun as , pronto se la acus de haber plagiado un trabajo de Zola publicado por parecidas fechas con un t tulo muy similar Sea por lo que fuere, Queir s no consider definitiva su obra hasta despu s de varios retoques y ediciones, a finales de esa d cada Y fue entonces cuando la novela llam la atenci n, beneficiada por el esc ndalo que ya hab a causado su sig [...]

    5. Padre Amaro is a young Catholic priest who falls in love with young girl Amelia When this was first published this created an uproar in Portugal in 1875 because of its openly depiction of sex and forbidden love When its movie adaptation was shown in 2002, the several religious organizations in Mexico attempted to prevent its showing The movie became an international blockbuster and made Gael Garcia Bernal born 1978 a Mexican actor and director as a household name I saw that movie and I liked it [...]

    6. The first novel I read by E a de Queir s was his magnificent, meandering family saga The Maias, a masterpiece that deserves to be far better known than it is at least in the English speaking world The Crime of Father Amaro is also an excellent novel, though rather different in character its satire is savage and relentless, and it is prepared to use blunter techniques to make its points The two novels are similar in their impatience with the provincialism and backwardness as the author saw it of [...]

    7. Li este livro quando tinha 14 ou 15 anos e lembro me de ter ficado profundamente impressionada com ele.Lembro me, em particular, de ter eu pr pria sentimentos contradit rios relativamente ao livro por um lado tinha vontade de o continuar a ler, por outro, o desenrolar da hist ria causava me um imenso mau estar Os conflitos interiores, o contraste entre o que se deve ser e o que se , as apar ncias e a realidade, etc Em suma, um excelente livro.

    8. This is NOT a love story This is about the ugly corruption of power, not that it in itself is a new theme, but this was written in the mid 1800 s in Portugal, about a catholic priest who seduces a young innocent girl from his parish Of course, the young girl believes it is love, and of course, for Father Amaro it is just a roll in the creche He is so despicable and he is so well understand by our writer that the story just keeps you mesmerized You must keep reminding yourself of when and where t [...]

    15. Why is this so good It is superbly vivid When the characters are slurping their fish stew, belching loudly, or sitting playing cards by the glow of the gas lamp we are hovering at their elbows, our senses almost physically assailed by the power of the description It is a brilliant evocation of small minded provincialism, religious hypocrisy, sex, and power It is not, in itself, a criticism of Christianity there are a few morally good characters, priests among them it is the Pharisees who are ske [...]

    19. Re read Project Read originally in Portuguese in the 80s in my E a de Queiroz phase Her old religious devotion was reborn, full of sentimental fervour she felt an almost physical love for the Church she would have liked to embrace and to plant lingering kisses on the altar, the organ, the missal, the saints, on heaven itself, because she made no real distinction between them and Amaro they seemed to her mere appendages of his being In The Crime of Father Amaro by E a de Queiroz, translated by Ma [...]

    23. El crimen del padre Amaro es una obra sensacional, precisa y elegante S , aunque suene extra o por el tema escabroso que, gracias al t tulo y al cine, nos aproximamos a una idea Queir s maneja el tema, a m parecer, de una manera magistral, con un punto de vista especialmente cr tico Es implacable Recuerda mucho al naturalismo de Zol , sin llegar a los florilegios te ricos en los que el franc s coloca su apuesta Esta especie de realismo de Queir s no s lo maneja la complejidad humana individual s [...]
