This tiny parable of political conscience may have some special resonance for Italian intellectuals--like This tiny parable of political conscience may have some special resonance for Italian intellectuals--like Sciascia--preoccupied with the paradoxes of church, state, and Communism; but, even in Foulke's airy translation, it seems here a dry, momentum-less, private exercise. Educated by a freethinking, soon-defrocked Archpriest, Candido ""plays peasant"" for a while on his estate, is disappointed by a pilgrimage to Lourdes ""If I were God, I would be offended by all this"" , and--after wooing away his fascistic grandfather's young housekeeper--he turns to Communism: ""the instinct to conserve, the will to survive found expression in Communism. Communism, in a word, was something that had to do with love. And, after happily giving up his property allowing himself to be declared mentally incompetent by his relatives , he moves to Paris, content just discussing Stalinism with the Archpriest and finding true love with his cousin Francesca.
