This paper discusses the essays that are compiled in "Muy Macho: Latino Men Confront Their Manhood," edited by R. Gonzalez. It discusses the content of the specific essays, "I'm the King: The Macho Image" by Rudolfo Anaya and "The Puerto Rican Dummy and the Merciful Son" by Martin Espada. The paper focuses on the relationship between fathers and sons and the outcomes that may be present when sons grow up without fathers.
From the Paper:"There is also a stigma often associated with children that do not have fathers. There seems to be the automatic assumption that these children will be delinquents. In some cases it is evident that this assumption can be extremely detrimental and damage the will of children that may want to rise above their circumstances. After all there are many people that have gone on to live productive lives in spite of the fact that they grew up without a father. However, people who do rise above their situation quite often have positive male influences such as a teacher, uncle or community leaders. As such it is safe to assume that positive male influences and fathers in particular are desperately needed in our society."
