"Levantado do Chão" de José Saramago

Levantado do Chão, onde fala da vida dos trabalhadores rurais da aldeia alentejana de Lavre na primeira metade deste século, marca o início da carreira a sério de José Saramago.

José Saramago

Acerca do título disse o autor: "Acho que do chão se levanta tudo, até nós nos levantamos. E sendo o livro como é — um livro sobre o Alentejo — e querendo eu contar a situação de uma parte da nossa população, num tempo relativamente dilatado, o que vi foi todo o esforço dessa gente de cujas vidas eu ia tentar falar é no fundo o de alguém que pretende levantar-se. Quer dizer: toda a opressão económica e social que tem caracterizado a vida do Alentejo, a relação entre o latifúndio e quem para ele trabalha, sempre foi — pelo menos do meu ponto de vista — uma relação de opressão. A opressão é, por definição, esmagadora, tende a baixar, a calcar. O movimento que reage a isto é o movimento de levantar: levantar o peso que nos esmaga, que nos domina. Portanto, o livro chama-se Levantado do Chão porque, no fundo, levantam-se os homens do chão, levantam-se as searas, é no chão que semeamos, é no chão que nascem as árvores e até do chão se pode levantar um livro, como uma flor brava ou uma ave. Ou uma bandeira. Enfim cá estou eu outra vez a sonhar. Como os homens a quem me dirijo."


  1. Parabéns Teresa!

    Esta é uma obra marco do nosso Saramago, a qual fala, com exactidão e isenção, dum problema ainda lactente no Alentejo.

    Brilhante a tua abordagem.


  2. Agradecendo desde já a sua visita e em face da pergunta que faz sobre a melhor altura de visitar as ruínas de Milreu, para mim é em Outubro. Tempo mais fresco, menos gente no Algarve.

    Não li "Levantado do Chão". Conheço algumas obras de Saramago. últimamente e por indicação de um amigo li "O Ano da Morte de Ricardo Reis" e gostei.


  3. Num programa de televisão, hoje, falaram de «Levantado do Chão».
    Quem falou foi a mulher que inspirou uma das personagens e que cuja casa que habita foi uma prenda de Saramago.

  4. Um dos melhores livros de Saramago, em minha opinião.

  5. Não li o livro, mas concordo com essa opinião de Saramago sobre a opressão! :)


    ps - a Licas faz anos hoje, dia 23 (aqui é menos uma hora), para o caso de a quereres parabenizar, embora se tenha afastado da blogosfera nos últimos tempos... ;)
