259 complete lack of success. Partly as a distraction through work and partly in order to recover his diminished fortunes, José María enters the stock market and the world of financial speculation in which he enjoys some success. He also develops a relationship with his moralizing oldest cousin, María Juana, who ostensibly tries to cure him of his adulterous vice but allows herself to become prey to it herself when José María avenges himself upon her husband, who he dislikes. José Marìa‘s continuing obsession with Camila becomes so all-encompassing that he is driven to extremes of malice in which he finds himself trying to drown Constantino. Never physically robust, he ages prematurely in the course of the following four years to the extent of finding consolation in the company of sick, old relatives. As a result of this distraction, he fails to pay adequate attention to his financial transactions and incurs debilitating losses on the stock market. At the same time, his increasingly desperate and violent attempts to seduce Camila continue to be repulsed.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
