W Allende as a writer of magical realism with works like Eva Luna and Of Love and Shadows in which she intertwines contemporary political drama with strokes ofhe surreal and mystical But her debut novel The House of he Spirits published in 1982 and he epics which followed such as Daughter of Fortune Portrait in Sepia Zorro reveal a writer rooted deeply in City Doctor, Outback Nurse the past and enad of rich complex colorful narratives In Island Beneath The Sea Allende wraps her considerable skill aroundhe sugar plantations of Saint Domingue an island in he Caribbean She opens he story in 1770 with he arrival of Toulouse Valmorain a young minor noble who is charged with resurrecting he plantation his dying father has left o rot Paralleling he hird person narrative of Valmorain s

about a mulatta woman determinedo The Wrong Dead Guy take control of her own destiny Buthe initial focus of Island Beneath The Sea is he political and sociological conditions of Saint Domingue which
