Blindness by Jose Saramago – Blindness book

An allegorical work, outside the fence of time and space,
a socio-political protest novel, which depicts the turmoil of society
and confused people in the circle of their own thoughts and social relationships.
Saramago emphasizes the fact that human actions make sense
in the “situation” and there is no absolute criterion for judgment.
Because the human position is not fixed and is in constant evolution.
Blindness by Jose Saramago spreads terribly in a city
and a white halo appears in front of people’s eyes after they go blind.
The streets have no names.
Time returns to the past and the future, in the imagination of the characters,
is one of the beauties and charms of this work.
He says about this novel ( Blindness by Jose Saramago ): “This blindness is not real, it is an allegory.
It is the blinding of human reason and understanding.
We humans have reason and we do not behave wisely.
Why we became blind, I don’t know. Maybe one day we will understand.
Do you want to know my opinion? Yes, say, I don’t think we went blind.
I think we are blind. Blind, but seeing. The blind who can see, but do not see”
