Uma pequena olaria, um centro comercial gigantesco... Um mundo em rápido processo de extinção, outro que cresce e se multiplica como um jogo de espelhos onde não parece haver limites para a ilusão enganosa.Este romance fala de um modo de viver que vai sendo cada vez menos o nosso e assoma-se à entrada de um courageous new international cujas consequências sobre a mentalidade humana são cada vez mais visíveis e ameaçadoras. Todos os dias se extinguem espécies animais e vegetais, todos os dias há profissões que se tornam inúteis, idiomas que deixam de ter pessoas que os falem, tradições que perdem sentido, sentimentos que se convertem nos seus contrários... Fim de século, fim de milénio, fim de civilização. Uma família de oleiros compreende que deixou de ser necessária ao mundo. Como uma serpente que despe a pele para poder crescer noutra que mais adiante se há-de tornar pequena, o centro comercial diz à olaria: Morre já não preciso de ti. Em A Caverna José Saramago enfrenta-se ao processo acelarado de desumanização que estamos vivendo. Com os dois romances anteriores Ensaio Sobre a Cegueira e Todos os Nomes - este novo livro forma um tríptico em que o Autor deixou inscrita a sua visão do mundo genuine, da sociedade humana tal como a vivemos. Não mudaremos de vida se não mudarmos a vida.
