Spanish Lit Take 2

posted by .

Ok so because I received a ridiculous response with a link to someone's class syllabi I've decided to re-post my question....

Ok so I understand that Historia del hombre que se convirtio en perro relates to existensialism and the politicla in Argentina. But HOW exactly to the events in the story convey that?

    Did you see my earlier response today? I never saw a class syllabi and true, I don't know how that would help you either. Please refer to your very first post:

    From the story, as I remember it, it's obvious that Actor 1 is looking for employment, but can not find it. The only job available is as the Night Watchman's dog. Since the first reference says the dog died after 25 years and the second died after 35 years (it has to be the same dog), there is a period of ten years during which the Actor lives in the doghouse, barks like a dog, etc.

    At first he finds the dog house too small but gradually he gets used to it, even believing that it is roomy. Don't you think this suggests that he was treated like a dog and gradually became one? At the end, what does he have? In other words the progress of the play is the degradation of this character.

    Does that help? Déjeme saber cualquier pregunta que tenga.

    P.S. One more thought. No doubt, you have heard "the power of positive thinking" and "you are what you think" but the converse is also true: "the power of negative thinking." That's one reason why people need positive reinforcement and not negative reinforcement!
