    The author, Julia Alvarez uses language and literary devices to depict the Mirabal sisters; Patria, Maria Teresa, Dede, and Minerva as martyrs under the dictatorship of Trujillo. For example, In the Time of the Butterflies by Julia Alvarez, in the scene where the SIM destroyed Pedrito’s family’s rancho and arrested both Nelson and Pedrito, Patria screamed out “‘I’ve been good!

    The main point of Julia Alvarez’s "In the Time of the Butterflies" is to show individual personality in each character. This book shows that the people involved in the revolution led personal lives and had feelings just like those of us who read about them. By telling about the characters’ families and personal issues, Alvarez draws her readers into the book and makes them feel for each character. Something that puzzled me was why the Mirabal sisters refused to leave prison. Minerva said

    “In the time of the butterflies,” was directed by Mariano Barroso to portray history, crime, romance and drama of a dictator’s regime towards his citizens. The movie captured my attention because it dates back into the era when Trujillo was in reign and how his cruelty against the people of Dominica Republic was evident and seem to be true through the movie. Also, it enlighten me about the way woman was viewed in the 1930’s and their many restrictions from society because of their leader. It reflects

    A man walks down a road, life, and suddenly there’s a fork in the road; the man must choose which path to go. One of the paths is a course he already knows the destination and the other route is a road he has never been through before. Whichever path he chooses to continue on he will have to accept the result. “We have two choices in life: to accept the condition we are put in or accept the responsibility for changing them” (Denis Waitley). In Voltaire’s writing “Memnon the Philosopher,” Memnon at
