Sobre o livro:

A madona de cedro, segundo romance de Antonio Callado, publicado em 1957, foi passo decisivo na construção do universo ficcional do autor. Podem-se ver nele as bases da linguagem e do universo romanesco que seriam marca registrada de Callado, e que atingiriam seu auge em Quarup e Sempreviva. O romance é uma batalha psicológica dentro de Delfino, que precisa lidar com as implicações morais de seu ato: remorso, culpa, expiação. Sem perder o vigour de um bom policial, o romance de Callado segue dinâmico. A volta de Adriano, a encarnação do príncipe das trevas, força Delfino a enfrentar de modo definitivo seu drama.

The very close relationship that the siblings had enjoyed as small children had long since cooled, rendering the differences in their temperaments more apparent than ever.

There was no doubt in the Evans family’s collective mind as to who was to blame for this reckless reversal in Mary Ann’s religious beliefs. Shortly after arriving in Coventry she had been introduced to near-neighbours Charles and Cara Bray.

Through the influence of this charismatic pair, amplified by Cara’s elder sister Sara Hennell, Mary Ann had started to read some of the new ‘Higher Criticism’ which threw doubt on the literal truth of the Bible, in particular the supernatural elements in the New Testament’s account of the life of Christ. It was this reading, including An Inquiry Concerning the Origin of Christianity (1838) by Sara and Cara’s brother Charles Christian Hennell, which had loosened Mary Ann’s attachment to Anglican observance and nudged her towards the agnosticism that endured for the rest of her life.
