For the Political Allegory & Character Analysis Essay, choose a single character from Dreaming in Cuban and, after student-driven discussions and conducting some independent research, identify a particular context relevant to the Cuban and/or U.S. sphere that the character relatestoeither directly or indirectly. In an essay that is 2-4 paragraphs long (450-550 words in length), answer the following three questions:
1) What character are you choosing and why? 2) What historical figure, event, or ideology does thischaracter relate to, represent, or contradict? and 3) What evidence do you have from the novel and a secondary source or sources to support your claim that this particular character is an allegorical representation of the contextual focus you have identified in your interpretation?
