Abaddon, the Exterminator

Ernesto Sabato

NOVEL. SUDAMERICANA, 1974. 520 PAGES.

Abaddon the Exterminator ends the trilogy that began with The Tunnel and followed with On Heroes and Tombs. Extending the metaphor of ‘The Report on the Blind’, this profound, revelatory novel brings Ernesto Sabato into the field of writing itself, including him as a character in a complex technical construction whose game of perspectives addresses both the reality of an apocalyptic period and the spiritual chasms where the visionary power of the creative act lurks. Thus, on the cusp of greatness, this vast work is the culmination and resolution of all of Sabato’s art and his existential investigations. Abaddon the Exterminator won an award for the best foreign book published in France in 1976.
