Rhian Atkin

Published by Manchester University Press

Durham Modern Languages Series MUP

  • This is the first book-length study of Saramago's work, in English or Portuguese, to focus on the structure and form of Saramago's writing
  • This book offers the most thorough and up-to-date examination yet of two of Saramago's most popular novels: Blindness (which was adapted to film in 2008) and All the Names
  • This book focuses on the universal appeal of Saramago's writing, making his work accessible to students and scholars with or without prior knowledge of the Portuguese context
  • Atkin's clear and accessible writing style make this a perfect companion to Blindness and All the Names, for both specialist and non-specialist readers
