Amadeo Peralta was in such a state that he would feel some guilt, but because he lost memory, he was not able to find out why 7.
This short story depicts a weak image of women, she stays in the basement without protesting, or doing anything to get out of there. She spends most of her life there in submissiveness.
Once their role get reversed, when she is freed and he gets to jail, she takes revenge. Her screams are very unpleasant to the passers-by, as they must have been to Amadeo even though he does not seem to find the reason why she does that.
The second sub-category of short stories is about women that are unsatisfied romantically and try to find fulfilment with other men, as in 'Clarisa', 'Regalo para una novia', or 'El palacio imaginado'. The third sub-category is about 'archetypical romantic love stories', as in 'Dos palabras' or 'Boca de Sapo' 8.
Hart makes a very interesting critic of the work of Allende.
According to her, Allende went beyong a feminist agenda and use the Cuentos de Eva Luna as a way to tell how she thinks gender equality should be. They are a 'survival manual for mistreated women' 9. She found aspiration in people she has known She attempted to stay in Chile, but chose after fifteen months to move to Caracas, she feared for her life and could not stand the violence and press censorship that were put in place in Chile.
In an other interview, she says that the writer have more responsibility than any other citizen because he can speak while the others have no choice than staying in silence. She has been working against the dictatorship, and sent to Chile a videotape in September asking the Chileans to vote against the plebiscite Both are Chilean immigrants in a Caribbean country probably Venezuela.
They spent the day walking together in the city, remembering good moments of the past, and their beloved home country. She invites him to go to her apartment. They try to have love, but they suddenly lose the complicity they had during the day.
He thinks that he would like to be friend with her, to share moments together. When they go back to bed, for a last attempt, she caresses him and feels his scars. He remembers the moment when he and other people were tortured. He asks her to cuddle him, and he starts crying. She says to him that fear is worst than anything, he understands that she is more than a woman ready to have love for no reason.
She turns on the light, take off her bracelets, and show her scars. They cry together for the painful secret they both share Cuentos de Eva Luna.
The shared experience of the past, that people try to keep silent for their own sake. Talking too much about it would make them sick. The fact that there are immigrants, relates to the people Isabel Allende said she knew, but also to herself. In this short story the woman seems to handle better the situation than the man, this is a typical, feminist way of depicting 13 women.
It is far different from La muerte y la doncella in which the female character is depicted as being out of her mind. The Culture of Story Telling in Latin America In 'The Short Story', Allende argues that in most of the third world countries, there were a strong oral tradition, because many people did not know how to read or did not have the money to download books.
She said that although there is now the radio and the television, the storytellers are nowadays the writers, that the reason why the writers would be highly considered, and often consulted in Latin America, and not so much in the United States or in Europe The first short story of Cuentos de Eva Luna is 'Dos palabras'.
The main character's name is Belisa Crepusculario, Belisa being the anagram of Isabel, this shows how this short story is a kind of artistic manifesto for Allende.
In her family, children were so poor that they did not even have names. She lived a very tough life, until she found a newspaper. With it, she taught herself to read and write, and she invented her own name.
This woman is depicted as so brave, she does not give up and start travelling. She uses language as her job, and trade it for her living. She sells words to people, these words help them, and make them forget for a moment about the poverty they live in. She is then kidnapped and brought to the Colonel that need help with writing a discourse. She gives him two words, as she always do.
These two words hunt the Colonel, he asks to 13 Dorfman, A. New York: Siete Cuentos Editorial. Journal of Modern Literature. Belisa, with the language intend to heal the political rights, as well as the gender rights.
She is so good at her work that she transformed the most powerful man of the region to a 'manso' For writing this short story Isabel Allende found inspiration in her grandmother, who used to be a very good storyteller. She said that she would put her whole soul, as Belisa Crepusculario.
Her grandmother and the character of her short story are both so passionate that the audience would listen to them instantly.
Belisa is also Isabel herself. She listens to other people stories and gathers them.
That is what Allende does in real life, when she was a journalist, but still now when she writes her books, she listens to people and write down their stories, and take inspiration from them Some short stories do talk about serious issues but have some magical events added to them.
