Jose Saramago gained fame in the English-speaking world more than two decades ago with works demonstrating versatility and challenging ambiguity. They also won him a Nobel Prize. Ms. Bernell invites us to explore and delight in two of the author’s short works: The Tale of the Unknown Island, which is as fanciful and delightful as it sounds, and Cain, a humorous yet profound romp through the Garden of Eden and a ride on Noah’s Ark. Calling all readers, dreamers, and lovers! It’s time to join OLLI and Ms. Bernell to search for psychological, romantic, and social subtexts as you cruise through the splendid prose and imagination of Nobel Laureate Saramago.
