What a lovely piece of writing it is I really do not want to waste your time that you could devote to read the story itself so I ll try to be brief Like in The Reuiem the previous story by Tabucchi I ve read we are in scorching Lisbon again where a chubby mid aged journalist named Pereira every day talking with a photograph of his deceased wife thinks about death soul and resurrection of the body Accidentally having come across on an article written by Monteiro Rossi on impulse engages him to writing occasional obituaries of famous writers and poets happily still alive Pereira maintains that he just wants to be prepared in the event of their death Sounds crazyWritten in a specific form statement or maybe as the publisher suggests an interrogation with repetitive phrase Pereira maintains it is a beautiful and haunting tale about the man who at all costs is trying to avoid politics and troubles and at the same time remain decent man It s also a tribute to the brave man ready to risk own life to protest against the evil and power of an insane ideology the thing is going on in 1938 in the shadow of Nazi activities in Spain and ItalySomething in Rossi maybe some memory of himself as a young man makes Pereira start to help him But does he finally perform his awakening does his divided soul find the ruling element Just read it

Reasons of the HeartGiving unto Caesar is considered by most Christians to be a strict reuirement of citizenship From the payment of taxes to the offering of one s life in patriotic war one is expected to conform as a Christian duty Established government appears to be divinely sanctioned by the biblical command After all Christianity stands for orderliness in the universe Social chaos is by definition evil And isn t salvation a purely personal matterMartin Luther for example divided the world cleanly in two In his interpretation the spiritual had nothing at all to do with the political Modern Evangelicals still view existing law as God given unless of course they take offence at it But mostly middle class Christians simply accept the inevitability of government and its policies and they adopt an attitude of impotent indifference to the resulting suffering usually by the less well off and non Christians Commonly they claim to do so in the name of Christianity itselfSo it was in Salazar s Portugal during the 1930 s as it was in most of contemporary Europe Fear and hypocrisy combined to create political acceptance even among those who found its oppressive fascism most distasteful And so is it now in Trumpist America Christianity seems to have a natural affinity with monarchs dictators and anyone else who can consolidate power in its Christianity s interest Occasionally however someone usually a non Christian provokes the dormant conscience of the Christian psyche Pereira Maintains is the story of such a provocation and its conseuencesChristian conscience can be a strange thing The eponymous Pereira feels uncomfortable with the political condition of his country and he wanted to repent but didn t know what he had to repent of he only felt a yearning for repentance as such surely that s what he meant or perhaps who knows he simply liked the idea of repentance Repentance like salvation is a personal thing without social implications The resolution of Pereira s discomfort he thinks is confession and counsel Political involvement is unthinkablePereira is drawn to memory mainly the reminiscence of his deceased wife But generally he is motivated by the memory of how things used to be the familiar orderliness of past life Unable to live in the past he ignores the reality of the present except within the limited sphere of his own ego his digestion poor the weather hot his job as a journalist satisfying the maintenance of his social isolation from potential threats mainly the government and its network of informers Pereira fervently believes in and desires the resurrection of his soul but not his body The later of course is inherently social and dependent upon other human beings This is hardly an orthodox opinion but it is necessary in order to maintain his detachment from the world What he finds however is that the slightest human contact is political It can t be helped His soul is part of a confederation over which he has no real control and whose connections are matters of the collective heart not the individual will Even mere translation of long dead authors establishes such a bond that is politically dangerousThe entire story is told in the form of a judicial deposition or police interrogation report as suggested by the title It is a narrative prepared by an intermediary ready perhaps for confirmation by the person who has been uestioned The central point of this narrative is stated early on Philosophy appears to concern itself only with the truth but perhaps expresses only fantasies while literature appears to concern itself only with fantasies but perhaps it expresses the truth What s wanting then is only a signature admitting this crime of recognition
