Sofía, by Martín de Morúa Delgado, was published in 1891. The author proposed to present a “series of social paintings” copied “from the natural of Cuban life”, as corresponds to the costumbrismo typical of the novels that were published in the second half of the nineteenth century in the Hispanic world.
The plot of the novel revolves around the mulatto Sofia – “almost white”, as it was usual to characterize the black female beauty. Sofia faces the repression of colonial society not only as a slave but also as a woman. She is a young woman of great beauty, who lives and is educated in the house of her employers as if she were just another slave.
As in other novels of his time, the refinement of his features and the white color of his skin arouse contradictory feelings. It is suspected that she is the daughter of the boss and that she could, therefore, have rights over the inheritance, so she is expelled from the main house and is condemned to work in the hard work of the hacienda of her masters.
Here the theme of slavery emerges again in Cuban literature through the works of Martín Morúa, in a starker way since it reveals deep personal implications of its author, a black man committed to the racial equality of Cuba.
It can be concluded by saying that the racial issue in Cuba had already been addressed in Cecilia Valdés, by Cirilo Villaverde, whose first version was published in 1839, and in many other Cuban novels of the late nineteenth century.
