by Eca de Queiros (Author), Nan Flanagan (Translator). Father Amaro appears more sinned against than sinning for about the first half of the narrative: we feel genuinely sorry for his social isolation and angry at the injustice of his enforced celibacy. But then, when we discover how selfish and corrupt he has become, while still acknowledging that society IS at least partly to blame, we gradually stop feeling that his actions are in any way justifiable.

José Maria de Eça de Queirós (; 25 November 1845 – 16 August 1900) is generally considered to have been the greatest Portuguese writer in the realist style. Zola considered him to be far greater than Flaubert. In the London Observer, Jonathan Keates ranked him alongside Dickens, Balzac and Tolstoy

Eça’s slip of memory is perhaps responsible for the error committed by his translator, Nan Flanagan, who gives O Crime do Padre Amaro (translated as The Sin of Father Amaro, London, 1962) as being published for the first time in 1874.

Eca de Queiros was unquestionably Portugal's greatest novelist. The first two books tell the reader that honesty, frankness, hard work, and courage are the keys to happiness and success. Beginning his career in the 1860s as a journalist, he became a constant literary innovator. He participated in the realist-naturalist revolt against the era's dominant romantics, headed by the poet Antonio Felicano de Castilho. With The Sin of Father Amaro (1876) Eca de Queiros introduced realistic and naturalistic techniques into Portuguese fiction. Set in Leiria, this is a long, tedious novel about provincial life, pettiness, ignorance, and corrupt clergy.

A classic, incredibly powerful book. How has it remained outside the group of classics widely read and taught here in the U.S.? It seems that the English-speaking world has been ignoring Portugal to its detriment! Both a rich, descriptive and entertaining novel and a scathing indictment of the hypocrisy of 19th century Catholic Portuguese society. I wish I could pass several copies of this book on, so more people could come to know this great author!

The sin of Father Amaro is one of the best books I've ever read. Simple, realistic, the picture of the society made by Eca de Queiros is perfect.
