ERNESTO SÁBATO – THE TUNNEL

Book Review from ViajeLiterario-AlohaCriticon

The Tunnel (1948) was the first novel writen by the Argentinian novelist Ernesto Sábato. It deals, in a progressive pessimistic tone and monologue form, the ups and downs of of the jealous Juan Pablo Castel, who murders his lover, the only one who could understand his artistic production, in a cruel way.

It is an excellent psychological and existentialist short novel dealing with topics such as solitude and lack of comunication narrating through a flashback, a history of a passionate, jealousy, absorbing relationship of love and passion.

The perspective and atmosphere of the text is characterized by the state of anxiety and dejection of the protagonist who longs for happiness and is dominated in his actions by the fear of not achieving it when he fears to loose the woman who, he thinks, is the only one capable to understand him… when he cannot see the light at the end of the tunnel.
