Example text

Es decir, como en la leyenda de Sita y Savatri, Luz vence a la muerte con su amor por el padre Enrique. Gilbert Paolini, en sus artículos ‘The Confluence of the Mythic, Artistic, and Psychic Creation in Valera’s Doña Luz’ y en ‘Interacción del mundo artístico y psicológico en Doña Luz de Juan Valera’, ha apuntado ya la influencia de la leyenda de Siva y Sati en la novela. Paolini resalta además que, a pesar de la procreación, Siva se mantiene casto y Sati virgen, lo que acerca todavía más la leyenda hindú a la novela de Valera.

La novela concluye con Fray Miguel aceptando la vanidad de sus victorias, el lastre que para su redención suponía el amor de mujer, un amor que su orgullo no le permitía aceptar que fuera perecedero, y habiendo comprendido que el único amor inmortal es el amor a Dios. Ante lo expuesto resulta evidente que Valera no mentía cuando en la dedicatoria que hace función de prólogo de la novela dice que al escribirla soltó el freno de la imaginación y la largó a volar por estos mundos de Dios (1961: 713).

A la vista de lo expuesto, me parece que el hecho es incontestable, así como lo es la presencia de la leyenda de Sita y Savatri. 21En efecto, una vez alejado de Donna Olimpia y a medida que el protagonista se va acercando a la India, su deseo de ser amado y favorecido por las mujeres se va apagando. Un día, observando las danzas de las bailarinas hindúes, Morsamor narra a su escudero el porqué de su cambio de actitud, le confiesa que esas mujeres le recuerdan a una enamorada de su primera juventud El Oriente en la obra de Juan Valera 43 llamada Beatriz, una gitana que lo amó apasionadamente y a la que él rechazó, enterándose más tarde por una adivina que la joven terminó por entregarse al diablo con la condición de que, en otra vida, le permitiera ser correspondida por él.
