As it is commonly accepted, interpretive deconstruction of canonical texts is a characteristic of postmodernism as well as of postcolonial writing. Introduction, 2. Don Juan Tenorio and Myth, 3. Don Juan Tenorio and Transculturation, 4. Deconstructing Don Juan, 5. The adapter usually looks ate the original text, be it legend, novel or play, with a certain degree of ambiguity where admiration, interest or disapproval are intertwined. In any case, any adaptation to be considered as such must be appreciated as a version of its source by the audience.
But tradition does have a dramatic side. As well as attending the theatrical production, during the first two days of November Spaniards usually take flowers to cemeteries, where they are laid on the tombs of deceased family members. Visitors also say their prayers with the aim of easing the passage of their relations and friends to heaven. It is not surprising that an equivalent tradition was introduced in Estudios Ingleses de la Universidad Complutense , vol. The original celebration can be traced back to the Aztec festivities held at the beginning of summer, ritually presided over by the goddess Mictecacihuatl "Lady of the Dead" , and devoted to children and the departed.
The result is that Mexicans now celebrate the Day of the Dead during the first two days of November, the modern festivity being characterized by a Mexican blend of traditional ancient Indian, Aztec and others, features together with those introduced by the Christians. In general, the day's activities consist of families visiting the graves of their close kin.
According to Ricardo Salvador , relatives engage in cleaning up the gravesites, decorating them with flowers, laying out and enjoying a picnic, and interacting socially with other community members who gather at the cemetery.

Families remember their departed by telling stories about them. Gravesites or family altars are profusely decorated with bright flowers such as yellow marigolds and chrysanthemums, and adorned with religious talismans and with offerings of food, cigarettes and alcoholic beverages. This festive interaction between the living and the dead constitutes an important social ritual and a way of recognizing the cycle of life and death of human existence.
Therefore it is also coherent with the postconquest religious adjustment and with an equivalent cultural transfer including a secular myth. In ay case, there may be different reasons behind adjustment but seldom faithfulness to the original culture takes place.
The loser will pay with his own life. But when they are in his chamber Don Juan unexpectedly falls desperately in love with her. When he sees his own funeral procession marching towards his tomb, he repents. The play thus ends in death, but unlike in tragedy, it is the happy death of the saved that will allow the two lovers to be united forever.
We are in a Christian environment where the afterlife offers unlimited happiness to virtuous souls. Cease, you funeral sounds: Be still, death's bells on high: fickle shadows, occupy your sepulchral mounds. On your pedestals, be found, you living sculptures, soon: let heavenly fortune in which the just delight begin for Don Juan, in sight of his very tomb.
Like many other writers before him, such as Corneille, Rostand, and Baudelaire among others. Consequently, as many critics have asserted, the figure of Don Juan, has come to share a similar place in western literature like that occupied by the mythical figures of Don Quixote, Hamlet and Faust. We should also add that the simple versification and the rhythm of the stanzas would make it easier for audiences to remember long excerpts particularly if the play were staged every year.
In fact, he incorporates the attractiveness of a vehement Romantic hero together with the repose of a prospective middle class husband. The Romantic aspect is emphasized by the use of a number of gothic metaphors that arose during the post revolutionary period in Europe, particularly those regarding fire. Through these Estudios Ingleses de la Universidad Complutense , vol. El cabello se me eriza. Banks goes on to describe Don Juan as an egocentric, promiscuous and manipulative psychopath who is unable to form meaningful relationships with others, has no fear of death and lacks any sense of responsibility.
She is, in a manner of speaking, the first woman to stir in him emotions he had never felt before. Don Juan Tenorio had been staged in Mexico as early as , the same year it had its Madrid premiere. Sometimes, like biological adaptation, cultural adaptation involves migration to favorable conditions: stories travel to different cultures and different media. Therefore, Don Juan on leaving his native land to cross the Atlantic, also leaves behind the dark romantic overtones with which both Tirso de Molina and Zorrilla illustrated his controversial relationship with Catholicism and fate.
He is a contemporary Chicano, the offspring of a dysfunctional family, who, as far as responsibility is concerned behaves like an absolute maniac. At the beginning of the play, objective time dissolves into dramatic time as on the evening of the Day Estudios Ingleses de la Universidad Complutense , vol. The music we initially hear is the corrido that Berta sings and which later on will come from a jukebox.
