PROMPT 1: “The Cariboo Café”
Viramontes uses various modes of narrative points of view (POV) in her short story “The Cariboo Café”: 3rd person omniscient with Sonya and Macky’s story, 1st person with the cook, and 1st person with some 3rd person omniscient POV for the voice of Geraldo’s mother. The only character that has the power to tell their own story, from their own POV completely is the white, male, cook.
Why do you think Viramontes gives him the power to tell his own story, but takes the ability away from the two female, undocumented immigrants in this story? What could Viramontes be saying here in regards to power dynamics and hierarchies in our society–both racially and vis-à-vis gender? PLEASE BE SPECIFIC.

What do these stories, and these characters show us about the representation of women in literature BY women writers? What types of female characters are being displayed (rounded, flat, stereotypical, etc.), and why do you think female writers chose to create this type of character to be in their stories?
