Description

This study analyzes representative works by Puerto Rican authors: Carmela Eulate Sanjurjo, Ana Roque, and Luisa Capetillo, for their treatment of the topic of women. The historical background is the transition associated with 1898, and the conceptual background is that of the roles of women in the Puerto Rican society and nation at the time. In Spanish. The first chapter focuses on Eulate's "La muneca", a novel in which the Puerto Rican context at the Island level is absent, and in which the protagonist is an exaggerated mimicry of the dominant discourse about women. The second chapter studies the protagonists of Roque's Luz y sombra and the way in which they educate each other about their status as women and through the social contrast between them. The last chapter concentrates on two of the drama pieces in "Influencias de las Ideas Modernas", by Capetillo, underscoring how their protagonists denounce the exploitation of women and workers. These three texts highlight the protagonism of their women characters as well as that of their authors and their contributions to the development of a feminist awareness in Puerto Rico, coming from such a crucial historical juncture.
