What they succeed at is immediately creating the easy "us versus them" divide between the helpless newly blind and the terrified seeing.

So imagine a disease that prompted sudden blindness; that spread from one person to another quicker than the common cold.

Likewise, we see that Saramago, similar to Albert Camus , uses the social disintegration of people to the extreme to study the fragility of our vices and virtues. Any supernatural element, spirits or otherwise take a backseat to living breathing humans when it comes to perpetrating evil. The book is highly enjoyable with traits of acerbic, ironical and wry humor through the existential horrors of life, dense but comprehensible, its impact is immediate and a reflection of the sensibility of Saramago, which is at once alive and significant. And if they did so, then resent those who could see and instead of relying on the few sighted people for help despise them for the obvious power they have.

Indeed, early on in March I had found myself thinking of Saramago’s dystopian fable and thinking ‘Oh god, do I have to read it again? Like most works by Saramago, Blindness contains many long, breathless passages in which commas take the place of periods, quotation marks, semicolons, and colons. I don't think we did go blind, I think we are blind, Blind but seeing, Blind people who can see, but do not see. We're going back to being primitive hordes, said the old man with the black eyepatch, with the difference that we are not a few thousand men and women in an immense, unspoiled nature, but thousands of millions in an uprooted, exhausted world, And blind, .For the latter, blindness did not mean being plunged into banal darkness, but living inside a luminous halo.
