Discuss the ways in which Rosario Castellanos challenges and subverts gender stereotypes in her work? In this essay I am going to examine and discuss the work of one of Mexico’s most important literary figures, Rosario Castellanos, with particular emphasis on her feministic beliefs and the ways in which she used her writing to catapult her views into the forefront of society. Her writing reflects bitterness regarding the desires and misfortunes of the female population of her nation.

Though he had a mother, he may feel as though in this time of despair he had no one to guide and comfort him therefore being ‘motherless’ and him resorting to ‘Singing his frightened self to sleep’.

His experience is able to guide and soothe
