In her short story Le viste la cara a Dios (2011), Gabriela Cabezón Cámara dismantles the defining stereotypes of women in a patriarchal society. The story—a raw second person narrative rewrite of the classic children’s tale “Sleeping Beauty”—deals with the suffering of women who are held captive and forced victim to a deplorable life of drugs and prostitution by sex trafficking rings. This essay will consider how Cabezón Cámara offers a feminine literary perspective that challenges the macho perspective of this classic children's tale about a perceptibly fragile and passive princess. In the original, the princess, under an enchantment and trapped in a tower, awaits salvation and the kiss of a brave knight. Unlike the protagonist in this fairy tale and many others, Beya in Le viste la cara a Diossaves herself. Many critics refer to this as revisionist feminist mythological literature and maintain that to inhabit this literary space of discourse from both a masculine gaze and a feminine one is to contradict oneself. However, I posit that Gabriela Cabezón Cámara overcomes this single paradox in Le viste la cara a Dios, demystifying the expectations and stereotypes of women in literature forged from a male perspective to show the influence of perception and, specifically, the power of the female voice in literature. Through an analysis of the thematic elements of the text, namely ethos and pathos, the Gothic double, and religion and irony, I will explore the real motive of the author to imagine this story again.
