Summary

If in The Gospel According to Jesus Christ, José Saramago presented us with his vision of the New Testament, in Cain he comes back to the first books of the Bible. An unorthodox itinerary takes him to decadent cities and stables, palaces of tyrants and battlefields, led by the hand of the central characters of the Old Testament, with the music and refined humor that are the hallmark of his work.Cain clearly demonstrates the modern and surprising aspects of Saramago's prose: the ability to weave a completely new tale out of a story we all know. An ironic and satirical journey where the reader is present at a secular-and in a way, involuntary-battle between the creator and his creature.
