The Crime of Father Amaro Viral Books 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 a bell is tolling, until finally reaching the top of the high hill, exhausted at the conclusion, they halt, by a small building.............The year 1870, Portugal is a quiet, stagnant, society, while the rest of Europe is in turmoil, the small town of Leiria, fifty miles north of Lisbon, has a new parish priest, the old one, Jose Migueis, expired, too much weight, to carry, and his body couldn't cope. Nobody is surprised or cares either, his gluttony had become legendary in town, through political influence, in the capital, connections are all important, in the constitutional monarchy of Portugal. Young, happy Father Amaro Vieira ( an appropriate name), is the replacement , he feels ecstatic to leave the mountains and shepherds, from his previous parish, all the old, devout ladies, love the handsome priest, such a relief to have a clergyman they can be proud of. His former teacher, in "Ethics", in the seminary ( he was 15), who Father Amaro, still calls master, is Canon Dias, and welcomes him to town, finding Father Amaro, a place to live (at the priest's request), Sao Joaneiro, as she is nicknamed, has rooms to rent in her home, the widow needs the money...The cheap price is just what Father Amaro wants, and can afford, but Amelia, the daughter of his landlady is a pleasant surprise, the prettiest girl in town. He had been forced by relatives, since the deaths of his parents, to become a priest, at a quite early age, to get rid of him and save money and trouble. At the very beginning, Amaro, is greatly attractive to the 23 year old woman, being only in his late 20's, himself, she , religious and rather shy, but smitten by the charismatic clergyman, the problem is obvious... The man must convince the woman that love is sacred , endorsed by God, it is not a sin, their lust will be forgiven...Old ladies visit at night the home of Sao Joaneiro, including the Canon Dias (her secret lover), for cards, lotto, listening to the music, and singing, of Amelia, she plays the piano, like an angel, eating, drinking and naturally plenty of gossip . So too comes Joao Eduardo, who wants to marry Amelia, she doesn't love the lowly clerk, but maybe it's the only way to solve the chaos, bring peace to her life, and have a normal existence, be saved from scandal, and insure her entrance into heaven....

Good Kindle The Crime of Father Amaro 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 certa franja do clero que subvertia esses valores em proveito próprio. Religiosos que usavam o poder eclesiástico para extorquir uma população beata, que compactuava com esta hipocrisia e vivia uma falsa moralidade comungando dos mesmos vícios. A escrita é sublime; uma delícia de ironia, de sentido de humor, de personagens bem caracterizadas.Tal como em Os Maias temos o mítico final da corrida para apanhar o americano, também aqui Eça se esmerou na última página. Em pleno largo Camões temos o encontro do Clero e do Estado. E é junto à estátua do poeta glorioso que se desenrola uma significativa conversa. Rodeados por um ambiente de pobreza, prostituição e miséria social, declama solenemente o ilustre Conde de Ribamar:"—Vejam toda esta paz, esta prosperidade, este contentamento...Meus senhores, não admira realmente que sejamos a inveja da Europa!"Ilusões de uma burguesia conservadora que sentia os ecos de uma Europa já revolucionária, e recusava os novos ares de mudança, ancorada nas memórias heróicas de um passado perdido.Muito, muuuito bom!
