In El caballero de las botas azules, Rosalía de Castro writes caught between the demands of the story, of literature as a form of fascination, and a constant reflection on the condition of her female characters.

Man: Since you have come to my call, O muse, listen attentively and propitiately to me, and cause my most fervent desire to be fulfilled.

Muse: (Hidden behind a thick cloud.) Speak, and let your language be that of sincerity. My sight is lynx.

Man: That way you can get to know better the idea that animates me. But I would like the dense smoke that surrounds you to dissipate. Why such modesty? Am I not to know you?

Musa: I am not demure, but prudent; So you get used to hearing me, you will get used to seeing me. Say in the meantime, what do you want?

Man: Even the muses are flirtatious!

Musa: Consider that I am a muse, but not a lady, and that we should not waste time in wanderings.

Man: What stupidity… but I will be obedient, in proof of the submission I owe you. I want my voice to be heard, in the midst of the multitude, like the voice of thunder that surpasses with its stampede all the tumults of the earth; I want fame to carry my name from town to town, from nation to nation, and to be repeated by generations to come, over many centuries.

Muse: Foolish desire for posthumous glory, whose light breath will pass as if such a thing on the scattered dust of your bones! Beware of the present and stop thinking about the future, which must be for you as if it did not exist.
