Item description for Sacrificio y recompensa (Spanish Edition) by Mercedes Cabello de Carbonera...

Sacrificio y recompensa is the first Mercedes Cabello de Carbonera work ever published. Entered in the literary contest organized by the Ateneo de Lima in 1886, it earned its author the gold medal. The publication in 1887 meant for Mercedes Cabello her recognition by the Lima society as a writer, and the preliminary hints of a style and attitude vis-a-vis the society that would become exacerbated in her other writings, Los amores de Hortensia (1886); Eleodora (1887); specially in Blanca Sol (Novela social) (1888) and Las consecuencias (1890); and El conspirador (1892). There is a character in Sacrificio y recompensa, Elisa, the beautiful putative daughter of Estelas tutor, that can be regarded as the immediate precedent of Blanca Sol: Elisa was a Limea very Limea, though to honor truth, she had all the defects, without the great virtues of the women born in these fortunate placesandshe was no more than a lively girl, with an active imagination, clear inteligence and a precocious and unbriddled ambition, purely feminine ambition, to flaunt, ascend, get noticed and grow above her humble condition. The tale of the intertwined destinies of Alvaro Gonzlez, Estela Guzmn and Catalina Montiel, depicted through the pen of the novelist [who] must regard and extoll as unique means to bring unto the readers conscience the most useful and benefitial lesson proposed by the realistic school may, under the scope of the following works of Mercedes Cabello de Carbonera, be regarded as the first attempt to shed light upon the feminine condition in Lima at those times lacking other options they use matrimony to ascend in the social pyramid. Faithful to her ensuing writings on theory such as La novela moderna (1892), the author achieves in this work what she says in the foreword: stay appart from realism, as understood by todays fashionable school, and search for the real in the beauty of feelings, copying the movements of the soul, not when it becomes vile and degraded, but when it elevates and becomes noble Sacrificio y recompensa is, thus, the best introduction to Blanca Sol and her author.
