The Colonel, however, did not want to be just another tyrant, there had been enough of those before him and, besides, if he did that, he would never win people's hearts.

He perched himself in front of her with his legs wide open and his weapon held tight, oozing authority from every cell. Even the simplest fairytales have dark undertones. Please keep in mind, that while Isabel reviews every invitation, she is trying to lead a more private life these days, and wishes to focus her time and energy on her writing, her family and her foundation.
But the Colonel did not hear. This quote explains her childhood quite well. No one had ever witnessed such a phenomenon: a man who surfaced from the civil war, covered with scars and speaking like a professor, a man whose fame spread to every corner of the land and captured the nation's heart. Words can push people away from one another. One night, Eva Luna's lover asks her to tell him a story she hasn't told anyone before.
But no one paid attention to these publicity tactics. Her profession was to sell words. Belisa accidently discovers writing when a newspaper blows at her feet. She discovers words and how to use them. The comparative analysis of the two stories reveals Allende challenging the traditional roles of men in Chilean culture. I have had students create an artistic response to two words that have many connotations--bridge, gold, dawn, etc.
After walking a little, they had to let go of their things and continue bearing just their own weight. Journalists travelled from far-away lands to interview him and quote his phrases.

Shortly after that this quote shows how hard it really was to survive throughout this journey to the sea. His own men started to fear that he might die before he becomes the President. Belisa Crepusculario had been born in a poor family, so poor that they could not even afford names for their children.
The main character in this short story is Belisa Crepusculario. She was the out of her five siblings to survive a horrible drought that swept through the area where she lived, that claimed her four siblings. He toured all over the country, entering cities with a triumphant air, stopping by even at the most forgettable places, where only the trash-can indicated human presence. Belisa Crepusculario looked up from her writing and saw a cloud of dust followed by a group of horsemen, who had barged into the marketplace. It seemed to her that selling words would be an honorable alternative.
To anyone who paid her fifty centavos in trade, she gave the gift of a secret word to drive away melancholy. This quote explains those circumstances. Therefore, he had decided to be the President. This quote reinforces the idea that she is a strong survivor, the fact that she made it to the destination, when many others did not, illustrates this point pretty well.

Allende uses two different types of point of view to tell her story, first person and third person. The Colonel realizes that if he wants the country to rally around him, he needs the right words. The main focus in this story is on the two words that she said to El Mulato that cursed him. Through the usage of plot, character and irony, Allende illustrates the cost of war. The two words play a large role in the story, and also create another underlying theme from the story.
