La Amortajada by María Luisa Bombal
Having a dead person tell the story is not an entirely original concept — there are two famous films, for example, that use this technique Sunset Boulevard and American Beauty — but it can be very effective as it is here. Now tranquil in her death, with people admiring her beautiful corpse, she can contemplate her life. And, as they come and look at the corpse, she thinks of what they meant to her. First of all is Ricardo, the passionate love of her youth, who left her pregnant and whose mother made him marry someone else. Then there is her family — her sons who admired her youth but resented it as well, her daughter who thinks her mother was never young. Then comes Fernando with whom she had a destructive relationship during her marriage. Finally there is her husband, Antonio.
