External and Internal Conflicts
The stereotypes of masculinity
man vs. society
man vs. man
An individual cannot be defied only by his or her sexual orientation.
Love can defy all logic and abandon all religious adherence.
Nicomedes Márquez Joaquín

St. John's Day
Donya Lupeng Moreta- long-married woman
Don Paeng Moreta- the highly moral husband of Donya Lupeng
Guido- young cousin to the Moretas who studied in Spain
Amada- the family cook and Entoy's wife
Entoy- the family driver
a three day festival that celebrated a ritual of fertility
The story starts when the family is enjoying the days of the St. John’s festival until Guido makes suggestive comments to Lupeng, and even bending down to kiss her feet. This makes her leave abruptly and have a discussion with her husband the coming night.
Lupeng secretly found herself intrigued by the attention of Guido; she felt that he was correct in saying that women should be ravished and men should adore them. This causes her to participate in the last night of the festival, which is the Tatarin ritual. Paeng goes with her and tries to drag her back once the dancing begun, but she runs from him to the women.
He tries to take her back but the women in the crowds beat him out, leaving him helpless. As the two return home, Paeng says he must whip his wife because he loves her and feels that she needs to be put in her place. To this, she shouts and says she wants to be adored, not respected and orders him to kiss her feet.
