Spanish Literature

I am trying to translate my Spanish questions in to English, to make sure I fully understand what they are asking, before I answer them back into Spanish.

  2. I was getting worried because I didn't see a reposting of the first Spanish Literature. Did you notice I did do the ending?

    ¿According to the grandfather, what had he corresponded to = a qué) prior to the Peregrina's visits?

    For what Purpose) had la Peregrina come? Could (s)he do her duty? (In the first part we know that "la Peregrina" is the subject so in the 2nd we have no reason to believe that the subject had changed)

    3. is fine

    4. How does the Peregrina explain why many people see her as "treacherous and cruel"? (or as a treacherous and cruel person)

    5. What does the Peregrina say is expected on the "other side?"

    6. How do they seem quite alike, the "other side" and a birth?

    7. How do they seem quite alike the "other side" and a birth? (un pueblo might also be translated as "a town, village") Must you translate "la Peregrina?" If so, "the Pilgrim"

    8. Why would death be called "freedom" the greatest sage of the people? (I'd change the word order because it is a question and in Spanish the subject comes at the end. Not usually in English. = Why would the greatest wiseman (sage) of the town (people) call death "freedom?
    9. How does the Peregrina describe her "bitter fate"? (Again, in a Spanish question, the subject follows the verb.) = How does the Pilgrim describe her "bitter destiny?" = HER, because "la Peregrina" is feminine; a man would be "el Peregrino."

    10. What had Adela tried (or intended) to do?
