Leiria, the setting for The Crime of Father Amaro, is a small town about 60 miles north of Lisbon. The street that now bears Eça de Queiroz’s name is little more than a back alley. Given the portrait that he paints of the town’s inhabitants, this is, perhaps, hardly surprising

Leiria, the setting for The Crime of Father Amaro, is a small town about 60 miles north of Lisbon. Given the portrait that he paints of the town’s inhabitants, this is, perhaps, hardly surprising. According to Eça, the population of nineteenth-century Leiria were narrow-minded, credulous bigots.

Eça de Queirós's novel The Crime of Father Amaro is a lurid satire of clerical corruption in a town in Portugal (Leira) during the period before and after the 1871 Paris Commune.

And yet The Crime of Father Amaro is in no way a criticism of the book, is a pure art book in the highest sense of the word ) the drama begins, unfolds and ends in one breath, walking to their outcome, right, ruthless, as a trace scratched by fate, through that narrow province of life, to its local gossip, their petty. Eca de Queiros is a powerful writer and all of his words and his essence have been carefully understood and translated by Margaret Jull Costa who is exquisitely talented at her craft.

I no longer believe "The Crime of Father Amaro" was an attack on Catholicism, neither to Catholics in general, but as an attack to corrupt people and corrupt institutions. The priests are human beings; therefore, some are better persons than others. But the truth is that most priests have to live in a world of hypocrisy and power.

"Translated into English, this highly controversial work of fiction is set in Leiria, Mexico, in a material and religious culture of this century not unlike the provincial Portugal where, as a young man, Eca de QuTiros was dispatched to train for the consular service. Leiria is a provincial cathedral city, in which the hypocrisies of churchmen were prevalent. Father Amaro, a young man like Eca himself, with a priestly rather than a diplomatic vocation, falls into a relationship with a woman, and their tragic story unfolds with a harsh relentlessness. The situation of women, tightly swaddled in conformities yet fevered in their illusions of romance, is addressed in this novel."

I loved the book! It's 10 times better than the movie! It's even better if you know Portuguese and know how to pronounce the names it's intriguing and interesting.

It is a great novel that deserves to be widely read, very well translated (a difficult task, considering the complicated titles and forms of address practiced in 19th-century Portugal).

Superb, masterfully composed

The Crime of Father Amaro was a revelation to this reader. It's not just breathtakingly satirical and (as other readers have noted) cynical, but it manages to combine this with real wisdom and compassion (a difficult trick to pull off, since cynicism is so often heartless); and (in this superb translation by Margaret Jull Costa) comes across as wickedly stylish and inventive in terms of its language. The range of characterization is masterly; and what I particularly liked was the way in which our sympathies change as we read on. Father Amaro appears more sinned against than sinning for about the first half of the book: 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. The tragic consequences of his behaviour come with a chilling suddenness and savagery, and there is a wonderfully ironic final section set some years later, which ferociously condemns not just Father Amaro himself but the whole of Portuguese society at this time. And how topical this book seems at a time when the Catholic Church is rent by scandals of a related kind!

This is a truly great novel: it's up there with Crime and Punishment, Madame Bovary, and Anna Karenina as one of the titanic masterpieces of world fiction, and deserves to be much more widely known. I can't wait to read more of de Queiroz's fiction.

The Crime of Father Amaro could be the greatest first novel in world literature! Eca has a way of instilling his characters with life; to me, every page of this novel comes alive. And when he comes to describe furniture, scenery, clothing--whatever--it all comes alive too. And I like that the moralist in him slightly outweighs the satirist.
