Abstract:Adapting this metaphor to the Puerto Rican case leaves the reader with three messianic figures that illustrates the evolution and the transmutation of times and values: the 18th-century infant, el Nino Aviles; the Puerto Rican governor Luis Munoz Marin; and the Afro Caribbean musician, Ismael Rivera. Each narrative represents a stage in the development of a contested Puerto Rican national identity that has denied the salience of race. Collectively these works resurrect the mulatto as a central figure in the formation of contemporary Puerto Rican identity.
