The meaning of Consuelo’ is a novel that opens us the mind to understand the different kind of situation that happens in the Puerto Rican culture. The family secrets even in the best families are always such a taboo for speaking to others. This novel makes the exception and shows us the secret life of the family of Consuelo who is the person who tell us everything in his own words in thenovel. I choose to make the story of Consuelo because she was the character that most impact me in every aspect of the life because the way that she was to forced to live without wanted. Being like a robot doing all she `s parents wanted to do without asking if she want to make some duties that do not correspond to Consuelo to make it. She was the older sister, who was in charge always to take careof Mili`s his young sister who was mental problems since she was a little girl, but when she grew up the mental problems has been worst.
` Consuelo in the story was the girl mature in front of the family who always made the correct thing s to tried to fixed his family tragedy of the father cheating and his li`l sister mental issues. Also was another thing that was, his secret life in the schoolthat changes dramatically when she has sex with his lover who after that never talks again like lover. The reputation of Consuelo was in the floor and they after that called her `la fulana’. After that his life change in some many aspects that later have repercussions that forced her to make things that she never thought before to do it, like escape of the monotony of her life being the guardianof she’s li`l sister and being invisible for her parents in other aspects like when their parents forgot shis `quince` because they were busy in other stuffs.
After all those events that occurs in her family, she at the end of the main point of his family tragedy understood the real meaning of his name carried by her for over fifteen years without noticing the real purpose of his life seen byher parents. But when she decides to leave the island to begin in the land of the American dream a new to life to start again, he realize that in her life not everything was a Consuelo for his family.
Reading the novel was good; the novel had a different trama, making interesting the reading of the novel. I enjoyed at all. But in this final project I had to admit that I learned alot how to make poems, but sincerely didn’t liked at all the whole process to make a whole history of one character in poems. It was very complicated to make the poems using the creativity that I don’t have. Was a new experience to know more about the ways to write a story in a different way. But I led the writers do this instead of me because, is art what they made with the words.
