About the book:

Exquisitely written, this short story is a delicious introduction to Saramagos work. In an imaginary kingdom, a nobel and persistent Portuguese man requests that the king grant him one of his ships to search for an unknown island. If he has his wish fulfilled, the man will sail in search of the unknown island of his dreams. Saramago uses this backdrop for a harsh fable about modern man; he shows us that dreaming is perhaps the real way towards happiness.

Description in Spanish: Un suceso histórico, la intención de un noble portugués de ser autorizado por el rey para utilizar una de sus carabelas en la búsqueda de la isla desconocida, le sirve al autor de pretexto para realizar una fábula descarnada del hombre moderno.

Saramago nos muestra que soñar, a veces, es el verdadero camino hacia la felicidad.
