    The death of her parents and the poem Endless Deathby José Gorostiza marked the start of her writing career and becoming a cultural critic. She enrolled at UNAM (National Autonomous University of Mexico) to study law, philosophy, and literature. Castellanos joined the National Indigenous Institute, where she wrote scripts for puppet shows. Coincidentally, the Institute was founded by the very person who took her family’s land away — President Cárdenas. During this period, she also wrote a weekly column for a newspaper called Excélsior. After leaving UNAM, she transferred to the Faculty of Philosophy and Letters. She also began spending time with Nicaraguans, Guatemalans, and other Mexicans. This group would later become writers who would be known as “The 1950 Generations.” It was in 1950 that she earned her master’s degree in philosophy. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

    In 1958, Castellanos married Ricardo Guerra Tejada, a professor of philosophy. Together they had a son named Gabriel Guerra Castellanos (currently a political scientist), born in 1961. Before the birth of her son, she suffered from depression after having numerous miscarriages. Gabriel’s birth was monumental and gave her a new outlook on life. Her marriage to Guerra ended after thirteen years as a result of his unfaithfulness. By this time, she had experienced an immense amount of heartbreak and depression, but didn’t allow anything to hinder her work. She dedicated much effort to defending women’s rights, which would eventually earn her a place as an important symbol of Latin American feminism. In addition to her writing endeavors, Castellanos held many governmental posts and was appointed ambassador of Mexico to Israel in 1971. After her divorce, she yearned for a change for her and her son, and welcomed the position. While in Tel Aviv, Israel, she also taught Latin American Liter...

    Castellanos’ poetry is deeply Catholic. She admired the work of Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz, the Mexican nun-poet of the seventeenth century, and Saint Teresa of Ávila, the Spanish sixteenth-century religious activist and author. Her poetry expresses social injustices and admiration for the creator of nature and is considered both powerful and authentic. Identity and the spirit of her home state of Chiapas are themes of her poetry, and she wrote of the women’s rights movement in Mexico. Though all of Castellanos’ works are powerful and original, her most famous novel,Oficio de tinieblas (The Book of Lamentations) published in 1962, is regarded as her most moving piece. The novel re-creates an Indian rebellion that happened in the city of San Cristobal de las Casas in the nineteenth century. Castellanos sets the story in the 1930s, the period in which her family suffered from reforms at the start of the Mexican Revolution. . . . . . . . . . .

    In 1958, Castellanos received the Chiapas Award for her novel Balún Canán. Two years after receiving the Chiapas Award, she was awarded the Xavier Villaurrutia Award for Ciudad Real in 1960. In 1962, Castellanos was awarded the Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz Award. In 1967, she was awarded the Carlos Trouyet Award of Letters. In 1972, Castellanos was given the Elias Sourasky Award of Letters. In Mexico City, a park and a public library are named after her in the A park located in the borough Cuajimalpa de Morelos. In UNAM, the library of the Center of Research and Gender Studies is named after her. Also, one of the gardens of the Faculty of Philosophy and Letters is named after her as well. In Colonia Condesa, Mexico City, the headquarters of the Economic Culture Fund bears her name. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

    On August 7, 1974, Castellanos died in Tel Aviv at the young age of forty-nine. Though her death was determined to be an accident, some, including Mexican writer Martha Cerda, believe her death was a suicide. Cerda wrote to journalist Lucian Kathmann, “I believe she committed suicide, though she already felt she was dead for some time.” There is no evidence to support the theory of suicide. . . . . . . . . . .

    Debido a su destacado desempeño académico, Castellanos consiguió una beca y viajó a España para estudiar Estética.Cuando regresó a México, se convirtió en profesora de la Facultad que la formó así como de la Universidad de Wisconsin, de Indiana y de la Estatal de Colorado. El trabajo de Rosario no se limitó a las aulas. También fue promotora del Instituto Chiapaneco de la Cultura y del Instituto Nacional Indigenista y nunca abandonó su quehacer de narradora, ensayista y poetisa. Sus letras estaban enfocadas en estudiar y reflexionar sobre la cuestionable situación de la mujer y de los pueblos originarios. Respecto a la mujer, Castellanos creía firmemente quedebía deshacerse de los títulos de “víctima” y “sexo débil”, además de valorarse a sí misma, superarse y entonces, ser libre. En cuanto al sector indígena, como cita Carlos Monsiváis en sus Notas sobre la cultura mexicana del siglo XX, criticaba a la corriente indigenista y denunciaba a una sociedad clasista que exotizaba a los p...

    En Poesía no eres tú, Rosario declara que los seres humanos somos criaturas completas que no necesitan “otras mitades” para complementarse.Es por ello que debemos abandonar esa idea romántica y aceptar nuestra propia complejidad e independencia para que entonces, la humanidad y la poesía comiencen. En Agonía fuera del muro, Castellanos expresa de la manera más dolorosa y rítmica la decepción que siente de una humanidad egoísta y vanidosa que cuando burla una ley, se envilece y sonríe.
