    One of the giants of Latin American literature, Ernesto S bato 1911 2011 lived most of his life in Buenos Aires, Argentina and periodically committed his own manuscripts to the flames, noting in one interview with wry satisfaction how fire is purifying Fortunately, in addition to many essays, three of his novels survive Before commenting on The Tunnel , his first novel written in 1948, some observations on his other two On Heroes and Tombs , S bato s dark, brooding 500 pager includes an entire hallucinogenic, mindbending section, Report on Blind People The novel also features young Martin and the object of his obsessive love, Alejandra, a reclusive young lady who deals with serious bouts of madness With every page turned, a reader is led ever further down murky, winding corridors of memory and imagination Not an easy read And S bato s second full length novel, The Angel of Darkness is even darker and brooding, where S bato himself takes on the role of main character and first person narrator In one outlandish scene, S bato has a nightmare where he shows up on his wedding day as groom wearing only his underwear, marrying a television celebrity with blind Jorge Luis Borges standing in as best man I mention Borges s blindness since this novel also involves a search for a Society of the Blind rud to be responsible for all the world s ills With its unique combination of magical realism and philosophic reflections, I judge this as one of the greatest novels ever written However, on this point, I am an army of one since nearly all critics and readers cite this work as dense, heavy and overly cerebral Turning to The Tunnel , Juan Pablo Castel, first person narrator of S bato s short novel, is a painter who becomes obsessed with a young woman who has a particular appreciation for a scene in one of his paintings And although The Tunnel is the same length as Camus s The Stranger and both are considered works of existential alienation, the obsessive Castel is a universe away from Meursault s indifference And to whom may we compare Castel For my money, narrators in Tommaso Landolfi s tales of obsession aristocratic and condescending down to their toes, looking at their fellow humans, even those educated and cultured, or, perhaps, especially those educated and cultured, as a rabble of vulgar, ugly, gluttonous, gross morons.Back to Castel s obsession for the young woman The opening line of the novel It should be sufficient to say that I am Juan Pablo Castel, the painter who killed Maria Iribarne Hi sits in the room where he is locked up and writes down how once he set eyes on Maria Iribarne he was driven mad by desire This is one compelling story Once I started reading, I couldn t put the book down until I finished My sense is S bato wanted his reader to do exactly that read in one sitting to get the full emotional and psychic impact of Castel s obsession At one point Castel relates a nightmare where he is in an unfamiliar house surrounded by friends and one sinister stranger We read, The man began to change me into a bird, into a man size bird He began with my feet I saw them gradually turning into something like rooster claws Then my whole body began to change, from the feet up, like water rising in a pool but when I began to speak it was at the top of my voice Then I was amazed by two facts the words I wanted to say came out as squawks, screeches that fell on my ears as desperate and alien, perhaps because there was still something human about them, and, what was infinitely worse, my friends did not hear the squawking, just as they had not seen my enormous bird body This nightmare foreshadows a scene in The Angel of Darkness where S bato walks down a street in Buenos Aires, having been transformed into a half blind, barely aware, four foot bat The theme of blindness pops up continually Maria Iribarne s husband is blind During one emotionally charged conversation, Castel accuses Maria of deceiving a blind man At another point, Castel conveys how he was blinded by the painful glare of his own shyness and at still another, how his blindness prevented him from seeing a flaw in an idea And, turns out, we can see how Castel s obsession made him blind when it came to Maria For example, the following exchange where Castel first converses with her The hardness in her face and eyes disturbed me Why is she so cold I asked myself Why Perhaps she sensed my anxiety, my hunger to communicate, because for an instant her expression softened, and she seemed to offer a bridge between us But I felt that it was a temporary and fragile bridge swaying high above an abyss Her voice was different when she added But I don t know what you will gain by seeing me I hurt everyone who comes near me.

    El t nel The Tunnel, Ernesto S batoThe Tunnel is a dark, psychological novel, written by Argentine writer Ernesto Sabato, about a deranged traditional painting technique, Juan Pablo Castel, and his obsession with a woman The story s title refers to the symbol for Castel s emotional and physical isolation from society, which becomes increasingly apparent as Castel proceeds to tell from his jail cell the series of events that enabled him to murder the only person capable of understanding him Marked by its existential themes, The Tunnel received enthusiastic support from Albert Camus and Graham Greene following its publication in 1948 2008 1386 174 9644482956 20 1387 160 9789649234816 .

    Sabato s The Tunnel 1948 resembles Camus The Stranger 1942 , for both are spare, short novels featuring murderer protagonists as first person narrators, men who are profoundly alienated not only from their societies but also from any meaningful personal relationship But the two protagonists are very different from each other too Camus hero Meursault, a shipping clerk, is an unimaginative man alienated from his own emotions Sabato s hero Castel, a well known painter, experiences his emotions intensely but projects them all onto a woman, the only woman he believes who can ever fully understand him Meursault s alienation leads to a murder of indifference, Sabato s to a murder of obsession.The reader watches in growing frustration and horror as Castel poisons what might have been a brief, sweet dalliance with a married woman who notices something in one of his paintings he believed only he and his ideal woman could ever see His relentless, all consuming hunger for her absolute devotion devours each romantic encounter, draining it of joy, and further intensifying his isolation Then one day, that isolation blossoms into crime.This is a fine book about the desperate loneliness of romantic obsession If such an obsession has ever touched your life, you should find this short novel both disturbing and fascinating.So why is it called The Tunnel Sabato and Castel explains this metaphor toward the end of the book it was if the two of us had been living in parallel passageways or tunnels, never knowing that we were moving side by side, like souls in like times, finally to meet before a scene I had painted as a kind of key meant for her alone, as a kind of secret sign that I was there ahead of her and that the passageways finally had joined and the hour of our meeting had comeWhat a stupid illusion that had been that the whole story of the passageways was my own ridiculous invention and that after all there was only one tunnel, dark and solitary mine, the tunnel in which I had spent my childhood, my youth, my entire life.

    It was just about the stroke of dawn, lilacs started to bloom, the birds were singing along, the orchestra was about to embark on, I got up early and decided to plunge myself in books, I d a few options The Tunnel, Beauty and Sadness, and Requiem A hallucination, I chose The Tunnel, for from excerpts of the book, it occurred to be an existential tale of an account of relationship of an artist Juan Pablo Castel with Maria Iribarne whom he murdered, I was listening to Shine on your crazy Diamond by Pink Floyd, the starting lines It should be sufficient to say that I am Juan Pablo Castel, the painter who killed Maria Iribarne I imagine that the trial is still in everyone s mind and that no further information about myself is necessary with the music of Pink Floyd were creating enthralling atmosphere which caught me off guard to observe that how effortlessly the author has used simplicity to convey the most profound and honest conviction by narrator, that was the very first glimpse of finesse, of the author, which only gets amplified in subsequent pages It s about recollection of actions of Castel from a prison cell, however it s neither an apology for the actions which his insanity caused him to do, nor is it a rational explanation of them Juan Pablo Castel, the first person narrator of the book, paints Motherhood which has a remote scene framed in a window in the upper let corner of canvas an empty beach and a solitary woman looking at the sea, gets preoccupied with a woman who seems to be interesting in this scene, of a window, which everyone ignores, the scene signifies absolute nostalgic loneliness, which is profound than solitude, for solitude is often self desired and rewarding at times as one gets chance to look aside form the distractions world offer us, to ponder upon your insignificant self and to nurture it with amusements you enjoy perhaps to refuel yourself, while the wistful loneliness is depressing as you feel isolated from the world and it seems to fall apart in front of your very eyes but all you could do is just to stare meekly at it the narrator feels a profound bond with her, a woman who can see into his soul and capable of understanding the emotion behind his artistic creation, for she probably feels the same isolation from the world as the narrator does, since the people, who are waking by, seem to be non existent to her this realization thoroughly captures his mind and he becomes obsessed with her, the kind of realization which brings along a injuring fear and an anguish at the same time to feel that there are others like you as well you re not absurd alone, a desire to meet those people and a trepidation to lose all your notions about your existence The narrator stalks her and tries different probable combinations to bring his chances of meeting her from null to desirable outcome, he keeps on mediating about these combinations to insanity and always tries to comfort himself when the fear of getting it altogether wrong strikes him by carefully deliberating each of them It isn t that I don t reason things Just the opposite my mind never stops But think of a captain who is constantly charting its position, meticulously following a course towards an objective But also imagine that he does not know why is sailing toward it Sabato captures the intensity of passions run into uncharted passages where love promises not tranquillity but danger, Juan Pablo manages to meet Maria, their relationship starts to bloom but it is not usual fairy types of bonds, for it is one of those crippling one which eventually turns out to be obsession wherein jealously gradually takes over infatuation as is the fate of love generally, for the dangers it holds only permeate with time The inability to control human passion, precisely bounded, here comes across not as melodrama but as icy documentary The I thought about it, the receptive I became to the idea of accepting her love without condition, and the terrified I became of being left with nothing, absolutely nothing From the terror was germinating and flowering the kind of humility possessed only by persons who have no choice This narrative of the book is meticulously condensed as the book is divided into small chapters which contain sparse and succinct sentences which makes them easy to decipher, at the same time the narrative doesn t leave its profoundness to captivate the reader about obsessions and struggles of the narrator The nightmares of Juan Pablo, in which he turns to a man size bird, reflects the deep scuffles in consciousness to ascertain existence of a man Sabato mocks about idiosyncrasies of life using satirical elements, the deadpan description of a cocktail party filled with psychoanalysts, the portrayal of life of elites wherein redundant conversations fill the intellectual circles, are absolutely bang on, his commentary over vanity is honest and chilling, for human nature is corrupted and man always delude himself I do not comment on vanity As far as I know, no human is devoid of this formidable motivation for Human Progress People make me laugh when they talk about the modesty of an Einstein, or someone of his kind My answer to them is that it is easy to be modest when you are famous That is appear to me modest This compelling book drills deeper into the dark abyss of human soul like The Outsider by Albert Camus, the dark canvas of tortured human soul sketched by Sabato wherein the rules governing despair are so closely examined that the entire enterprise of living or thinking seems deeply absurd, wherein man constantly sees faults in the people he meets or observes walking along the streets of the city, whose distrust of human nature is evident in the jealousy and insecurity towards seemingly most profound relationships according to Albert Camus, the only philosophical problem in the life was suicide, for its the greatest choice for a man in this absurd world, to choose whether or not life is worth living is to answer the very question of existence, Camus sees this question of suicide as a natural response to an underlying premise, namely that life is absurd in its very nature, for it s absurd to continually seek meaning in life when there is none S bato s narrator faces the existential dilemma with similar existential choices at his disposal, we don t see any sign of regret in Castel over his act of murder as he reflects on his actions in prison which clearly shows influence of Dostoevsky and Kafka as their characters, who create havoc, who helped society see the soul of man who carried vengeance in his heart, yet maintained a love for mankind, or probably anti heroes never show any sign of remorse over their deeds since their acts are existential choices at their disposal one could easily decipher that Juan Pablo is already a prisoner well before he is being put in prison, for he is captive of his wistful loneliness, of his delusions and paranoia which eventually leads him to murder Maria, who he thinks understands him best, out of utter jealously, which is the outcome of his interminable existential struggle.

    Just as Opaque the Second Time RoundIn The Tunnel, Ernesto Sabato has a mysogonistic, puerile, obsessive, apparently psychopathic murderer tell the reader his every thought about a folie a deux with his victim and its rationale My first time through The Tunnel left me bewildered Of what literary rather than ideological merit is this work For whose edification or amusement is it meant My original conclusion It s a difficult book to be interested in much less like But I picked up on a hint by another GR reader and found that Sabato was a scientist before he was a writer and had incorporated quantum physics in The Tunnel as a sort of hidden metaphor Indeed there is a short book by Halpern and Carpenter which outlines the way in which the metaphor is meant to work at key points in the book This led me back into The Tunnel for another look Halpern and Carpenter suggest that Sabato followed Borges in his interest in the labyrinthine character of history through which the world changes direction at critical nodes They also point out Borges allusions to alternative and even parallel universes that were of interest to Sabato They contend that Sabato builds on these Borgian tropes to create scenes of discontinuous time in his story.Maybe so But I find the argument of Halpern and Carpenter to be somewhat tendentious But even stipulating their observations, I don t see the point The metaphor, if there, is certainly not central to this tale of murder and psychopathy Of course there are always alternative trajectories for any story, or for any historical reality But the idea of using the collapse of the quantum wavefront as the signal for a decisive turning point seems to me trivial and fatuous.True, the protagonist, Juan Pablo, is continuously analysing his situation in terms of alternative possibilities, as in this internal monologue I constructed an endless series of variations In one I was talkative, witty something in fact I never am in another I was taciturn in still another, sunny and smiling At times, though it seems incredible, I answered rudely, even with ill concealed rage It happened in some of these imaginary meetings that our exchange broke off abruptly because of an absurd irritability on my part, or because I rebuked her, almost crudely, for some comment I found pointless or ill thought out But this is a symptom of madness not a symbol of impending quantum resolution Even the speaker recognises that this damned compulsion to justify everything I do, isn t normalConsequently it seems to me that the metaphor of quantum physics does nothing to explicate Sabato s very dark story Juan Pablo is a misanthrope without any mitigating, not to say redeeming, features The Tunnel, therefore, doesn t get any interesting with a possible metaphorical foundation Unless of course sabato s intention was simply to create a sort of quantum uncertainty about this very foundation In any case not terribly stimulating My original review us here Cui bono I have been trying to finish this short novel for weeks But I can only get through 10 pages at a time I ve finally given up I don t get it Is there something beyond an obsessive compulsive folie a deux that I am simply unable to comprehend Someone please explain where I am going wrong.

    La felicidad est rodeada de dolor Primer libro que leo de Sabato Muy bueno Es una lectura breve pero intensa La soledad y el asco existencial sartriano es palpable en cada p gina, y estuvo muy bien tratado, al igual que la locura del amor llevada a su grado delictivo Lo recomiendo sin un pice de duda.

    Que maravillosa pieza de literatura Nunca pens que El T nel tuviera este efecto en mi, la escritura de Sabato es como ninguna otra angustiosa, deprimente, ilustrativa y engatusadora a partes iguales El personaje de Castel ciertamente tiene problemas psicologicos muy marcados no soy psic loga pero puede ser TOC y episodios de neurosis que lo llevan a sobre analizar todo y crear escenarios hipot ticos que s lo contribuyen a convertirlo en un monstruo lleno de celos enfermizos, deprimido y finalmente un asesino Durante toda la lectura dec a que hombre tan incre blemente loco pero no puedo parar de leerlo porque me encanta jaja ya saben todos que disfruto mucho de un buen protagonista con problemas Este es un libro que lo empiezas y no lo sueltas hasta que lo termines, me he quedado con ganas de leer m s cosas de este genio Sabato, si tienen sugerencias por favor d ganmelas que necesito m s de su escritura Se ha convertido en uno de mis libros favoritos
