Abstract

This thesis analyzes the portrayal of female characters in the collection of short stories, De noche vienes, by contemporary Mexican author Elena Poniatowska. Several stories out of the sixteen were chosen for their common themes of love and power. The plots and characters are analyzed to determine how Poniatowska views the status of women in relation to each other and to society. The two major types of relationships examined are that of women in love relationships and that of women in positions of authority/superiority over another.
