Sarah Winter Silver 1 Earth Literature 4/27/09 Angela Vicario is legitimate for the put-to-cessation of Santiago Nasar. Although it was her match brothers that committed the real wrong, the reasons following their put-to-cessation succeeding at-once from their musical sister Angela. While it wasn’t Angela who at-once put-to-deathed Santiago, she is suitable as defiled as the pause. Angela is affable and as-well participated in the series of the put-to-cessation of Santiago Nasar. The espousals between Bayardo San Roman and Angela Vicario set a influential origin for the put-to-death. If the espousals between Bayardo and Angela had never occurred, Santiago Nasar would calm?} be safe.
Ever past Angela was a slip, she countenanced a influential constraining to get married. “The girls had been reared to get married. ” (Page 31) It is exalted that Angela was the prettiest of her three sisters and sundry men desired her. Manifold men were spirited in espouseing her, specially Bayardo San Roman, but Angela was not spirited in espouseing true she was in devotion. “Angela Vicario never forgot the dismay of the duskiness on which her parents and her older sisters succeeding a while their husbands collected concomitantly in the parlor, imposed on her the compulsion to espouse a man whom she had hardly seen. (Page 24) Bayardo, on the other agency, was rooted to espouse her and in a speed to do so. Their promise lasted barely six months, and their espousals lasted not level one duskiness. “No one would feel purpose, nor did anyone say, that Angela Vicario wasn’t a untouched. ” (Page 37) Her parentage was incredibly saveive of her and “She’d developed up parallel succeeding a while her sisters below the asperity of a dame of vigorous. ” (Page 37) Angela Vicario was terribly unaffected for going into this espousals succeeding a whileout her untouchedity. She had been miserable but leveltually listened to her two confidantes. They certain her that almost all women lost their untouchedity in sliphood accidents and that level the most obscure of husbands resigned themselves to anything as hanker as nobody knew environing it. ” (Page 38) Apparently Bayardo San Roman was an qualification. Barely disgusting hours succeeding the reckless marriage and dancing festivities, Pura Vicario (Angela’s dame) was woken by three very inactive knocks. “Her [Angela Vicario] silken clothes was in tatters and she was wrapped in a towel up to the waist. ” (Page 46) Bayardo San Roman was there to produce his helpmate accordingly she was not a untouched. Pura Vicario batter her daughter mercilessly and urgently ummoned her match sons residence. “They fix Angela Vicario untruthful countenance down on the dining admission couch, her countenance all bruised…Pedro Vicario, the over forceful of the brothers excellent her up by the waist and sat her on the dining admission consultation. ‘All suitable, girls,’ he said to her, vibratory succeeding a while puff, ‘tell us who it was. ’ She barely took the age requisite to say the designate. She looked for it in the shadows, she fix it at leading visibility incompact the manifold, manifold amply involved designates from this earth and the other, and she nailed it to the rampart succeeding a while her well-aimed dart, charity a butterfly succeeding a while no achieve whose decree had frequently been written. Santiago Nasar. ’ she said. ” (Page 47) Angela Vicario designated Santiago Nasar as the composer and whether he did it or not, Angela gave him a cessation decree the second his designate escaped her lips. When Angela’s brothers asked who took her untouchedity, she could feel designated any man in town. It is never developed nor robbed whether Santiago Nasar had sex succeeding a while Angela Vicario or not. However, if he was not the man to receive her untouchedity, then why would Angela Vicario yield his designate? This raises manifold new interrogations, for entreaty, did they feel consensual sex? Did Santiago hurt her?
Were they in devotion but never had sex, and was Angela barely unamenable to save Santiago? Or was the perfect sexual meet made up? Marquez never answers these interrogations, and the reader has to effect sundry inferences. The conception of a butterfly pinned to a rampart is symbolic of twain Angela Vicario and Santiago Nasar’s condition. Once she had recurrent that Santiago is the one who took her untouchedity, twain of their fates became pinned. If Angela did not yield her brothers a designate, they would feel besucceeding outrageous at her for saveing the man who had dishonored her.
She “pins” Santiago succeeding a while her articulation, but she is as-well pinning herself by the sexism of the culture. The title of Angela’s purpose regularity when she spoke Santiago’s designate suggests that Angela is not barely thinking of mass who are safe but as-well those who are deserted (“manifold amply involved designates from this earth and the other. ”) This is not a proven reality, but this influentially implies that Angela chose his designate at unpremeditated, which would average Angela Vicario sanctioned the put-to-cessation of an harmless man.
Like almost all of the townspeople, Angela Vicario is affable. “There had never been a cessation over foretold. ” (Page 50) Everybody knew of the Vicario match’s intentions, “The Vicario brothers had told their plans to over than a dozen mass who had past to buy allay, and these had diffuse the tidings everywhere antecedently six o’clock. ” (Page 58) Yet the barely idiosyncratic out of the all town to seek halt the Vicario matchs was Colonel Aponte. The put-to-cessation of Santiago Nasar never would feel happened if Angela had executed sundry things irrelatively.
If Angela had kept her untouchedity, the affliction never would feel surfaced. Angela could feel singly yieldn a irrelative designate, and Santiago would calm?} be safe. It as-well would feel been fairly unconcerned for her to seal her brothers from put-to-deathing Santiago. Not barely is she affable in the put-to-death, but she as-well gave the series of put-to-death. Pablo and Pedro Vicario are harmless; they were put-to-deathing singly to save their sister, star any brother would feel executed succeeding a whileout a interrogation. Angela Vicario is palpably legitimate for the gruesome put-to-cessation of Santiago Nasar.
