Essential Question: a way Alvarez portrays the struggle for identity in her writing is through Patria. This is because Patria's character was idealistic, with the desire to devote her life to the Lord. However, the author shows Patria's struggle for identity through her contradictions. For example, Patria was turned between being a nun and being with a man.
