Music that enounces, announces and denounces in Arráncame la vida : An analysis about the function of the boleros in Ángeles Mastretta’s textual structure (English)
Abstract [es]

La novela Arráncame la vida, de la autora mexicana Ángeles Mastretta, pone hincapié en la desigualdad entre hombres y mujeres y la emancipación de la mujer oprimida. Catalina, casada con un general de la revolución, narra sus experiencias desde su situación como mujer, esposa, madre y amante en el contexto postrevolucionario mexicano. En la superficie textual del relato se entretejen una serie de canciones que aparentemente funcionan como trasfondo de ciertos acontecimientos en la historia. No obstante, Mastretta sugiere otra posibilidad de lectura por las referencias musicales en la obra. Estas referencias son principalmente boleros y, como elementos intertextuales, revelan contenidos subyacentes que no son evidentes en la superficie textual de manera concreta. Nuestra hipótesis es que la función de la música en la obra consiste en enunciar sentimientos y decisiones, anunciar o anticipar eventos del relato, y denunciar injusticias en la narración, comparable con fenómenos contemporáneos como los narcocorridos. En la conclusión recalcamos estas funciones intertextuales como ayuda de mayor compresión de la novela.

Abstract [en]

The novel Arráncame la vida, by the Mexican author Ángeles Mastretta, puts emphasis on the lack of equality between men and women, and the emancipation of the oppressed woman. Catalina, married to a general of the revolution, narrates her experiences as a woman, wife, mother and lover in the Mexican post revolutionary context. Various songs constitute a background on the narrative’s textual surface. However, through these musical references, Mastretta suggests a different kind of approach of reading the story. These references are primarily boleros, and, as intertextual elements, they reveal underlying contents, not easily discovered on the textual surface. Our hypothesis is that the function of the music in the novel is to enounce feelings and decisions, announce or anticipate the story’s events, and denounce iniquities in the narrative, comparable with contemporary phenomena like the ‘narcocorridos’. To conclude, we state that through these intertextual functions, one can reach a higher comprehension of the novel.
