You will prepare and submit a term paper on Eye-Openers by Ana Lydia Vega. Your paper should be a minimum of 3000 words in length. Vega gives the reader a glimpse of the practices, beliefs, traditions, prejudices and mores of the people of Puerto Rico especially the attitude of the sexes towards each other and towards their own gender. Employing prolific wit and language, creative and clever literary style, Vega succeeded in conveying to the readers the causes, like lack of faith, which underpin the sexual divide that exists between Puerto Rican men and women.
Vega cleverly manipulated language and the different elements of the short story to convey to the reader her perspectives, at least, of Puerto Rican society. The setting paved the way for the expression of these perspectives through the narratives of the different characters and the varied reactions of the other characters to these narratives. Although the story was
story less preachy and critical and allows the reader to enjoy reading rather than be offended or be distressed by the present social condition. This effect is reinforced by the mood which exudes joviality and gaiety. Vega also used characters who were the ultimate personification of the very theme she wanted to convey. Moreover, she employed symbolism and the different aspects of Puerto Rican socio-cultural realities like religion, beliefs, traditions, biases and culture to emphasize the themes of her short story.
The Story’s Theme. As discussed previously, Vega’s work is steeped in the socio-cultural dynamics of the Puerto Rican society. She portrayed machismo or the exaggerated sense of masculinity of men which they primarily equate with their sexual prowess and women conquest. Puerto Rican women, on the other hand, were represented by Vega, as basically distrustful of men, possibly an upshot by the latter’s inability to be faithful with one woman and also by the inability of men to stand by their women.
