ONE DAY OF LIFE MANLIO ARGUETA PDF

Even though the story is fictional the issues are indisputably real. During the 12 year civil war, Manlio Argueta was banished into exile, to Costa Rica due to his profession, it was no longer safe for him to stay in El Salvador. One of Manlio Argueta close friend and mentor, Roque Dalton, was assassinated due to that reason. The story is told through the eyes of the grandmother of the Guardado family, named Lupe. Most importantly, Lupe as a narrator analyzes her feelings and tries to make sense of the confusion. Especially for that reason I believe Manlio Argueta chose to write the story through the eyes of a women rather than a man.

Existentialism is an outlook on life that emphasizes the existence, freedom, and actions of the individual. This perspective tends to be atheistic and stress human freedom and experience as a definition of existence as opposed to scientific definitions.

One Day of Life Quotes

The novel takes place in a small town of Chalatenango, El Salvador, where the Guardado family, Lupe Guardado, and her husband Chepe Guardado begin their day of work and chores for the new day, or so they believed. As the day progresses, Lupe notices that her once quaint town is being terrorized and uninhabitable due to the oppressive authorities that abuse the hardworking impoverished people. Manlio Argueta uses a fictitious impoverished family, the Guardado family, as a mere source that unravels the social and personal changes bestowed on the poor people due to the hostile Salvadoran Civil War, also showcasing the control and oppression the rich have over the poor, and emphasizing the vital role the Catholic church plays in the novel as well. As the novel progresses, the social change that reshapes Chalatenango from the Salvadoran Civil War influences the personal change in Lupe Guardado, and her surrounding family members and relatives. Progressing, as the oppressive authorities came in and terrorized the poor people, including Lupe and her family, she became even more fearful when they threatened her husband Chepe, after the killing of their son Justino. Thoroughly, Argueta wanted to convey the fear Lupe felt for the life of her family, after losing Justino, thus pleading to Chepe and other peasant men to sleep in the hills for their safety.
