Essay on the lucidness has it all. A blind lucidness; not see and that is not seen. That, come on!, reminds the current demo-racy! If can be called this form. This test makes us reflect on that. About the concept of democracy, about our role and our responsibility as citizens, how we satisfied with the policy of the powerful and the powerful are its policy. And Jones is aware of the change in the reader something. Let us faces the constant flushing by the shame of conformism, but awakens us more attentive to desire for change.

The author of testing on the lucidness (2004) made the comment at the end of the speech received the Juan Rulfo Award, delivered by the Spanish writer Juan Goytisolo, in which he referred to as a ''''clear effect of pessimism''''.
Saramago, who inaugurated the collective interviews of the fair, said not believe ''''that lucidness is a mechanical consequence of pessimism''''. -- There are pessimists who do nothing but there are other ideas that are responsible and do what they can to make things change. In his pronouncement, Saramago said issues of international politics, as the recent elections in the U.S., and searches of opinion in Peru, showing the popularity of former President Alberto Fujimori (1990-2000). -- I am critical to the concept of democracy and its application in reality. My concern is not Mr Bush nor Fujimori, but the American people and people of Peru. Jones also said that any writer is a kind of bridge that unites two sensibilities - to the reader and the author - and then reveal what is most important in the literary work: - A key thing is the sincerity with which you write.
