Cool, refreshing, and filling, this classic Spanish white gazpacho is made with bread, almonds, cucumbers, grapes, olive oil, and garlic. You cross the living room: silk lined furniture, display cases with porcelain dolls, musical clocks, crystal balls and decorations; Persian rugs, bucolic paintings, green velvet curtains drawn.

Aura dressed in green. You follow, always behind her, into the dining room. She places the candelabrum in the centre of the table; you feel a damp cold. All the walls of the room are clad in dark wood, carved in the gothic style, with peaked arches and rosettes. The cats have stopped meowing. When you take your seat you notice that there are four places set and that there are two hot plates beside silver casseroles and an old and bright bottle covered in a greenish film. Aura opens the casserole. You inhale the pungent smell of the kidneys in onion sauce that she serves while you take the old bottle and fill the cut crystal glasses with thick red liquid.

You try, out of curiosity, to read the wine label, but the film prevents it. From the other platter, Aura takes some whole roasted tomatoes. You eat in silence. You drink the particularly thick wine, and you turn repeatedly to look then glance away, so that Aura is not surprised by the impudence of this urge that you cannot control. Whenever you look away, you have already forgotten and an undeniable urgency forces you to look anew. She keeps, as always, her eyes low and you, looking for the packet of cigarettes in the bag, find this latchkey, remembering, you say to Aura:. She says it like a reproach.

You feel confused and extend the hand with the key hung by a finger, you offer it. But she moves away from the touch of your hands, keeps hers on her lap, finally looks up and again you doubt your senses, you attribute to the wine your light-headedness, the dizziness produced by those green eyes, clear, bright, and you stand behind Aura, caressing the wooden back of the Gothic chair, not daring to touch the bare shoulders of the girl, the head that stays still.

You make an effort to contain yourself, distract yourself by listening to the imperceptible beat of another door, behind you, which should lead to the kitchen, deconstruct the two plastic parts of the dining room: the compact circle of light thrown by the candlestick that illuminates the table and one end of the carved wall, the larger circle of shadow, surrounding the first.

You have, at last, the courage to approach her, take her hand, open it and place the key ring, the promise, on her smooth palm. And Mrs. Consuela waits for you: she warned you: she waits for you after dinner. You know the way. You take the candlestick and cross the room and the foyer. The first door, in front of you, is that of the old woman.

You knock, no answer. Knock again. You push the door; she waits for you. You enter cautiously, murmuring:. She will not have heard you, because you find her lying before this wall of devotions, her head resting upon her clenched fists. You see her from afar, twisted, covered by that coarse woollen nightgown, her head sunk in her thin shoulders: thin as medieval sculpture, gaunt: her legs appear like two strands beneath the nightgown, weak, covered by inflamed erysipelas; you think of the constant rubbing of the rough wool on her skin until she raises her fists and strikes the air weakly, as if she were fighting a battle against the images that, on approaching, you begin to distinguish: Christ, Mary, San Sebastian, Saint Lucia, Archangel Michael, the smiling demons, the only ones smiling in this iconography of pain and anger: smiling because, in the old engraving illuminated by candlelight, they pierce tridents through the skin of those condemned, empty cauldrons of boiling water, rape women, get drunk, enjoy freedoms forbidden the saints.

You approach this central image, surrounded by the tears of the Sorrowful, the blood of the Crucified One, the pleasure of Luzbel, the rage of the Archangel, viscera preserved in jars of alcohol, silver hearts: Mrs. Consuelo, kneeling, shakes her fists, babbling words that, nearing her, you can hear:. She beats her chest until she collapses, in front of the images and the candles, with a fit of coughing. You take her by the elbows, you lead her gently to the bed, you are surprised by the size of the woman: almost a girl.

Bent double, hunchbacked, with the deformed spine: you know that, if not for your presence, she would have to return to the bed on hands and knees. You lay her on the big bed of crumbs and old duvets, cover her, wait for her breathing to regulate, while involuntary tears run down her transparent cheeks. Forgive me, Mr. To the old there only remains. Pass me the cloth, please.

I do not want us to lose any time. You must. Thank you. The old woman lifts her hands to her collar, unbuttons it, lowers her head to remove a purple ribbon which she now passes to you: heavy because a copper key hangs from the ribbon. Open that trunk and bring the papers that are on the right, on the top.

Alejandro Aura

Tied with a yellow cord. To my right. They have walled us in, Mr Montero. They have built around us, they have taken the light from us. They have tried to force me to sell. This house is full of memories for me. Only dead will I be removed from here. Can you begin reading this part. Good night, Mr. Look: your candle has gone out.

Light it, please. No, no keep the key. Accept it. I trust you. That same night you read the yellowed papers, written in a mustard-coloured ink; sometimes perforated carelessly by tobacco ash, tainted by flies. You see that you can improve the style considerably, tighten the diffuse narration of past events: childhood in a hacienda in 19 th century Oaxaca, military studies in France, friendship with the Duke of Morny, with the intimate circle of Napoleon III, the return to Mexico in the staff of Maximilian, the ceremonies and soirees of the Empire, the battles, the collapse, the Hill of the Bells, the exile in Paris.

Nothing that had not been told by others. You lie down smiling, thinking of your four thousand pesos. You sleep, without a sound, until the shaft of light wakes you, at six in the morning, because the glass ceiling has no blinds. You cover your eyes with the pillow and try to go back to sleep. After ten minutes, you give up and walk to the bathroom, where you find all your things arranged on the table, your few suits hanging in the closet.

You have finished shaving when an imploring and pained caterwauling destroys the silence of the morning. It reaches your ears with an atrocious vibration, rending, pleading. You quickly climb onto the chair, from the chair to the bench, and leaning on the bookshelf you can reach the skylight, open one of its windows, rise with effort and peer into the side garden, this block of tangled yew trees and brambles where five, six, seven cats — you cannot count them: you cannot support yourself there for more than one second — chained together, they are covered in fire, they give off an opaque smoke, a smell of burning fur.

Spanish Soap Opera (Telenovela) - Lele Pons & Rudy Mancuso

You doubt, when you fall back on the armchair, whether you have in fact seen that; perhaps you only associated that image with the appalling caterwauling that persists, diminishes, eventually ends. You look into the corridor; Aura approaches with the bell in her hand, inclines her head toward you, tells you that breakfast is ready.

You try to stop her. Aura has already descended the spiral staircase, ringing the black painted bell, as if to raise a whole hospice, an entire boarding school. You follow her, in shirtsleeves, but when you reach the hall you cannot find her. In the dining room, you find your breakfast served, this time in a single setting. You eat quickly, you return to the hallway, you knock on the door of Mrs. That voice, weak but sharp, asks you to enter. Nothing has changed. The permanent darkness. The glow of the candles and the silver miracles. We lost the garden when they built around the house.

There my niece grows some shade plants. If you can save at least twelve thousand pesos, you could spend about a year devoted to your own work, postponed, almost forgotten. Your great work covering all the Spanish settlements and conquests in America. A work that summarises all the scattered chronicles, makes them intelligible, reveals the correspondence between all the companies and adventurers of the golden age, between the human prototypes and the major fact of the Renaissance. In fact, you end up abandoning the tedious papers of the military man of the Empire to begin writing briefs and summaries of your own work.

Time flies and only when you hear the bell again, you consult your watch, take your bag and go down to the dining room. Aura will be seated already; this time the head of the table is occupied by Mrs. Llorente, wrapped in her shawl and camisole, topped with her cap, bent over the plate. But the fourth place is also set. You notice in passing; no longer do you worry. If the price of your future creative freedom is to accept all the manias of this old woman, you can pay it without difficulty. You try, while watching her slurping soup, to calculate her age.

There is a moment when it is no longer possible to distinguish the passage of years: Mrs. Consuela, long since has crossed that border. The general does not mention it in what you have read from the memoirs. But had the general been forty-two years old at the time of the French invasion and died in , forty years later, he would have died at eighty-two. He would have married Mrs. Consuela after the defeat of Queretaro and the exile, but she would have been a girl then.

The dates confuse you, because the lady is already speaking, with that sharp, slight murmur, that bird chirrup; she is speaking to Aura and you listen, attentive to the food, to that flat list of complaints, pains, suspicion of disease, more complaints about the price of medicine, the humidity of the house.

You look quickly from the aunt to the niece and from the niece to the aunt, but Mrs. Consuelo did the same. Remain several minutes in silence: you finish eating, they immobile like statues, watching you eat. Finally the lady says:. Should not eat at the table. Come Aura, accompany me to the bedroom. The lady will try to hold your attention: she will look at you directly so that you look at her, although her words are addressed to her niece. You must make an effort to avert that gaze — again open, clear, yellow, stripped of the veils and wrinkles that normally cover it — and fix yours on Aura, who in turn stares at a lost point and moves her lips silently, rises with movements similar to those that you associate with dreams, takes the arms of the old hunchback and leads her slowly out of the dining room.

Alone, you serve yourself the coffee that has been there since the beginning of lunch, the cold coffee that you sip while you frown and wonder if the lady does not possess a secret power over the girl, if the girl, your beautiful Aura dressed in green, will not be kept against her will in this old, gloomy house.

It would, however, be so easy to escape while the old woman sits in her darkened room. And you cannot ignore the path that opens in your imagination: perhaps Aura expects you to save her from the chains that, for some secret reason, this capricious and imbalanced old woman has imposed on her. You recall Aura minutes before, inanimate, brutalized by terror: unable to speak before the tyrant, moving her lips silently, as if in silence she begged for freedom, imprisoned to imitate all the movements of Mrs.

Consuelo, as if only that which the old woman did was allowed to the young one. Push the door and enter that bedroom, also dark, with whitewashed walls, where the only adornment is a black Christ. On the left, you see the door that should lead to the bedroom of the widow. And if Aura wants you to help her, she will come to your room. You remain there, forgetting the yellow papers, your own annotated notes, thinking only of the elusive beauty of your Aura — the more you think about her, the more you want to do it, not only because you think of her beauty and desire her, but because now you want to liberate her: you have found a moral reason for your desire; you will feel innocent and satisfied — and when you hear the warning of the bell again, you do not go down to dinner because you could not endure another scene like that of midday.

Perhaps Aura will realize and, after dinner, will come up to find you. You make an effort to review the papers. Tired, you slowly undress, you fall on the bed, you soon fall asleep and for the first time in many years you dream, you dream of one thing, you dream of this stark hand that moves toward you with the bell in the hand, shouting that you move away, that they all move away, and when that face with vacant eyes is close to yours, you wake up with a muted cry, sweating, and you feel those hands that caress your face and your hair, those lips that murmur in the softest voice, comfort you, ask for calm and affection.

You reach out your own hands to find the other body, naked, then trembling slightly, the latchkey which you recognize, and with it the woman who leans over you, kisses you, smothers your whole body with kisses. You cannot see her in the darkness of the starless night, but you smell in her hair the perfume of the plants of the courtyard, feel the soft and most tender skin of her arms, touch the interlaced flower of the delicate veins in her breasts, kiss her, and do not ask for words.

You nod. She will tell you that it is dawn; she will say goodbye saying that she waits for you that night in the bedroom. You nod again, before falling asleep, satisfied, light, pleasure fading, holding by your fingertips the body of Aura, your trembling, your delivery: the girl Aura. You have trouble waking. There are several knocks and you rise from the bed heavily, groaning. Aura, on the other side of the door, will tell you not to open: Mrs. After ten minutes you enter the sanctuary of the widow. You walk, this time with disgust, toward that chest around which the rats swarm, poke their beady eyes between rotten floorboards, scamper toward the holes in the wall.

Open the chest and remove the second folio of papers. You return to the foot of the bed; Mrs Consuela caresses her white rabbit. From the buttoned throat of the old lady, this dull cackling issues:. Follow your instincts. It is natural and free. They have forgotten that in solitude the temptation is greater. You turn your back. You walk towards the door. You leave the bedroom.

In the hall, you clench your teeth. Why do you not have the courage to tell her that you love the girl? Why do you not go in and tell her, at once, that you plan to take Aura with you when you finish the work. You go back to the door; you push it, hesitantly, and through the gap you see Mrs. You close the door. Consuelo will be one hundred and nine years old today.

You close the folio. Forty-nine at the time of death of her husband. Je pense que tu seras toujours belle, meme dans cent ans [9]. Always dressed in green. Always beautiful, even in a hundred years. Tu es si fiere de ta beaute; que ne ferais-tu pas pour rester toujours jeune? You know, on closing the folio again, that this is why Aura lives in this house: to perpetuate the illusion of youth and beauty of the poor old crazy woman.

Aura, encased as a mirror, as another icon of that religious wall, riddled with miracles, preserved hearts, demons and imaginary saints. You toss the papers aside and descend, suspecting the only place where Aura could be in the morning: the place assigned by the greedy old woman.

You find her in the kitchen, yes, at the moment of beheading a male goat: the steam that rises from the open neck, the smell of spilled blood, the hard, open eyes of the animal make you nauseous: behind this image is lost that of Aura, badly dressed, with hair mussed, blood-stained, who looks at you without recognition, who continues the butchery. You fall into a stupor, fall to the bottom of the dream that is your only way out, your denial of the madness. In the depths of the dark abyss, in your silent dream, with open mouths, in silence, you will see her advance towards you, from the black depths of the abyss, you will see her advance on all fours.

Hear the knock on the door, the bell following the knock, the dinner bell. Place the glass jug beneath the bath tap. And beside your plate, under the napkin, that object that you rub between your fingers, that flimsy doll, of rag, filled with stuffing that leaks through the badly stitched shoulder: the face painted with Chinese ink, the naked body, detailed with scant brushstrokes. You eat your dinner cold — kidneys, tomatoes, wine — with the right hand: you hold the doll between the fingers of the left.

The point of the novel is not that Fuentes views Felipe as a model that he or we should imitate. Fuentes instead explores the tensions between these tendencies within the world of the text by radicalizing their theatrical modes and their relationship to the reader who is external to it. Fuentes does want what Consuelo wants: autonomy within the heteronomy of the market. Alazraki continues: [T]he second person allows Felipe to be the subject and the object of the narration at the same time, the narrator who tells his own story and the character whose will has been mortgaged by the narrator.

The second person generates a distance. This fiction of separation enables the reader to see the system in which he or she resides as if he or she were separate from it, and in this sense, we can integrate Aura into the antitheatrical tradition studied by Michael Fried. Rather, Aura absorbs the reader into itself, creating the fiction that he or she is completely immersed in an illusion that is separated from a world he or she in reality never leaves.

Alazraki puts it this way: The second person [in Aura]. Instead, it makes visible a narrative image of the present.

What Fuentes aims to do, then, is to choose neither Baroque modes of theatricality—which lead to a recreation or restoration of the past in the present—nor Gothic modes of theatricality—which lead to an emptying out of that past so that it can create an alternative future—but rather to lay bare the structure of potentiality itself, one that both includes us but, importantly, is also separated from us, is independent of us. That path to reappearance, as the novel makes clear, is linked to the contrasting modes of theatricality it evokes. In other words, Aura makes present what is absent and visible what is invisible: the potentiality of the present.

As we saw at the outset of this article, what form that potentiality might take should be worked out politically rather than in the space of literary, which should not be subordinated and cannot be reduced to external political projects and their eschatologies. Williams affirms what has been noted above, which is that Fuentes accepts the messy chaos of market relations and that an ideally autonomous sphere is impossible in a market-oriented modernity.

But what Fuentes does not accept is that this is all that he and his novels are. We see the same rejection of Enlightenment reason with the emergence of the Anglo-American Gothic tradition one Fuentes often cited as influence as a subgenre of the Romanticism. It is this link that makes the difference between Gothic and Baroque so difficult to parse. They form a part of the same tradition, which leads some scholars to assert their interchangeability and others to privilege the Baroque over the Gothic as an Ur-aesthetic approach. However, as I will argue throughout, there is a difference in these traditions, and they are intimately linked with the political and economic realities present at the historical moment of their emergence.

For Dhondt, a Gothic reading implies disconnecting the narrative from history. At the same time, he does not pursue a fully contextualized historical reading as I do here. As I will point out throughout this essay, it is not that the Gothic is ahistorical while the Baroque is a fully historicized allegorical mode but rather that each aesthetic tradition pursues similar strategies of integrating history into the aesthetic object but with distinct results and goals. Fuentes borrows from each tradition to innovate the novel in what he understands as its moment of crisis, and he seeks to develop a work that pursues both political and aesthetic ends simultaneously while being reduced to neither.

Kadir, however, does not interrogate the subtle differences between them nor does he develop arguments about Aura.
