    One thought on “The Crime of Father Amaro

    1. Henry Avila on said:

      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 [...]

    2. Carmo on said:

      Não se iludam a pensar que esta é uma história de amor romântico, sofrido, entre dois seres fadados ao desgosto.Amaro era um padre de caráter duvidoso, que abraçou o sacerdócio por imposição familiar e não por vocação, e Amélia, podia ser ingénua mas tinha noção do pecado que estavam a cometer e vacilava à vista das contrariedades.O que Eça - grandioso e acutilante Eça! - aqui nos trás é uma acérrima crítica, não à religião católica e aos dogmas da igreja, mas a uma ce [...]

      Quoting Ramalho Ortigão"The book of Mr. Eça de Queirós 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 b [...]

    4. César Lasso on said:

      Esta novela nació con complicaciones en la década de 1870 en Portugal. Primero apareció fraccionada en un periódico y pasó bastante desapercibida. Aun así, pronto se la acusó de haber plagiado un trabajo de Zola publicado por parecidas fechas con un título muy similar. Sea por lo que fuere, Queirós no consideró definitiva su obra hasta después de varios retoques y ediciones, a finales de esa década. Y fue entonces cuando la novela llamó la atención, beneficiada por el escándalo qu [...]

      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 lik [...]

      The first novel I read by Eça de Queirós 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 more 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 aut [...]

    7. Pequete on said:

      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 própria sentimentos contraditórios relativamente ao livro: por um lado tinha vontade de o continuar a ler, por outro, o desenrolar da história causava-me um imenso mau-estar! Os conflitos interiores, o contraste entre o que se deve ser e o que se é, as aparências e a realidade, etc. Em suma, um excelente livro.

    8. Carolyn on said:

      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 whe [...]

      Peguei neste livro ao fim de vários anos de o ter. Sempre gostei muitos d'Os Maias e Cidade e as Serras e, confesso, as outras obras de Eça que tinha lido até agora (também não foram muitas mais) não tinham chegado ao mesmo nível. Por isso, foi com um certo receio que peguei n'O Crime do Padre Amaro.Surpreendeu-me por completo! Significou o regresso às sensações que tinha sentido ao ler as obras que mais me tinham marcado do reportório de Eça. As críticas, a análise social, a perti [...]

      6,5 de 10*Acredito que seja por causa de livros como “O Crime do Padre Amaro” que se criou o estigma de que os livros clássicos são difíceis de ler e maçadores. Porque na realidade, achei este livro muito entediante e difícil de ler! Apenas o consegui concluir com a ajuda de um audiolivro para me manter concentrada. Nunca diria que este livro foi escrito pelo mesmo autor de “Os Maias” ou “A Cidade e as Serras”.Comentário completo em:abibliotecadajoao/

      ¡Muy bueno! Obviamente lo que me llevó a este libro fue la película. Carlos Carrera es de mis directores preferidos, pero sinceramente desde que la vi hace varios años pensé que Gael García Bernal, con lo buen actor que es, fue una muy mala elección. Después de leer el libro, sólo podría decir dos cosas respecto a la película: increíble adaptación de Vicente Leñero del Portugal del siglo XIX al México del siglo XXI. ¡Felicidades! Y la segunda: ¿a quién se le ocurrió que Gael e [...]

    13. Landa on said:

      O Crime do Padre Amaro é um retrato da sociedade Portuguesa em meados do século XIX e uma severa crítica à hipocrisia existente na Igreja Católica e à vida burguesa portuguesa. No entanto, apesar de ter sido escrito à mais de 100 anos achei-o bastante actual em alguns pontos.Um leitura bastante agradável pela escrita do autor e pelo ensaio irónico desenvolvido.

      Publicado em 1875, O Crime do Padre Amaro (romance de tese), de Eça de Queirós, é, simultaneamente uma obra-prima, um documento humano e social do país e de uma época, a expressão literária de uma realidade que a história confirma.

      4*-4.5*Αυτό το βιβλίο το είχα αγοράσει για παρηγοριά το 1998 μετά την ακύρωση της διάλεξης του Pascal Bruckner στο Γαλλικό Ινστιτούτο λόγω σπασίματος του ποδιού του. Απλά για την ιστορία.

    16. Eliana Rivero on said:

      Esta novela es un crimen para las emociones, la verdad. El crimen del padre Amaro es rápida y con grandes personajes. Todo se vuelve irónico, incluso molesto, cuando te das cuenta de toda la hipocresía y chismorreo de la entidad eclesiástica. Curas, monaguillos, padres, canónigos: todos son viles, con privilegios inmerecidos; las beatas son hipócritas, chismosas, y se valen de una falsa mojigatería para desprestigiar a los demás. Existe una doble moral increíblemente despiadada.Los pers [...]

    17. Monty Milne on said:

      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 [...]

    18. Ana Cláudia on said:

      Extremamente antigo e tristemente atual. Não sei se, por isso, devamos achar Eça um máximo ou Portugal "um mínimo". Talvez os dois.

      El crimen del padre Amaro es una crítica a la burguesía y a algunos personajes del clero en el siglo XIX.Sorprende algunos pensamientos y comportamientos de los curas para cuando a los demás les hacían tener una vida casi pura para poder acceder al cielo.Nada de pasar hambre, nada de vivir en parroquias de pueblo, ellos tenían que vivir bien.En ese libro el único personaje que vale la pena por su bondad es el Abad Ferrao.En cuanto a comparar el libro con la película, nada que ver.

      Re-read Project. Read originally in Portuguese in the 80s in my Eça 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 Eça de Queiroz [...]

      Este livro ilustra bem a religião e a hipocrisia existente em alguns círculos da mesma.O senhor padre Amaro, essa figura fraca de corpo e de espírito é um 'santo'. A sua mera presença faz com que os doentes e aleijados se sintam automaticamente revigorados e as velhas beatas se prostem em oração.No entanto, essa figura celestial é um nojento, um devasso que utiliza a sua posição e influência sobre pessoas desesperadas e facilmente influenciáveis para corremper.Pela calada, este indiv [...]

    24. Beatriz Canas Mendes on said:

      O aspecto que mais se deve salientar neste romance é a evolução do Padre Amaro: de jovem padre de quem sentimos pena pelo sofrimento de não poder ser apenas mais um homem passa a amante controlador, violento e hipócrita. No meio disto tudo, também não foi a Amélia a minha personagem favorita, mas sim o Abade Ferrão, consolador, terno e genuíno.Não querendo entrar em favoritismos, acho que este foi o livro de Eça de Queirós que mais me interessou pela parte da sátira. Por vezes, a r [...]

      Eça de Queiróz é dos meus autores portugueses favoritos. Já li vários livros dele mas, nunca tinha lido o livro em questão. Apenas havia visto há vários anos a adaptação cinematográfica com a Soraia Chaves e o Jorge Corrula. Grosso modo, sabia a trama principal do livro embora, certos pormenores, me fossem desconhecidos.De qualquer forma, gostei bastante do livro. É mais uma obra marcada pela enorme sagacidade e perspicácia do autor. Marcada também pelo humor, pela ironia e, acima [...]

    26. Sofía on said:

      El crimen del padre Amaro es una obra sensacional, precisa y elegante. Sí, aunque suene extraño por el tema escabroso que, gracias al título y al cine, nos aproximamos a una idea . Queirós maneja el tema, a mí parecer, de una manera magistral, con un punto de vista especialmente crítico. Es implacable. Recuerda mucho al naturalismo de Zolá, sin llegar a los florilegios teóricos en los que el francés coloca su apuesta. Esta especie de realismo de Queirós no sólo maneja la complejidad h [...]
