The Portuguese man of letters who is its hero is very much a figure from between the two word wars. His literary sensibility is his all.But finally the brutalities of Salazar s fascist regime cause him to take an active moral and political stand.
The plot clunks. But even in translation you can tell that it is a very stylishly written piece.
