Description

This paper examines the impact of societal norms on relationships formed within families. Oftentimes, outside influences affect personal relationships. This is evident through the analysis of two short stories: El solitario by Horacio Quiroga (Uruguay, 1878) and La compuerta número 12 by Baldomero Lillo (Chile, 1867). In both stories, society influences the characters, which in turn influences their relationships. By analyzing the themes and societal conflict present in both works, readers can better understand the reasons behind the conflicts and their links between society and family.
