beggar by the name of Serapio, he is a member of a federation and
was accused because of breaking their rules. The accusation was dug
by a trial with three antagonists, of course, more powerful than
him, by asking questions. The conflict is primarily centered into
man versus man because it illustrates to us what a man can do to
hurt another man just because of status and greed. We can also say
that it is a man versus society because of social stratification.
Social stratification is present in almost all society, and it
happens that Serapio is a beggar and a lot of people are "more"
powerful than him.
The conflicts on the play were not really resolved. The sense of
relief was present when, after a very long time, Serapio was found
innocent. Still, more powerful people found HOLES just to punish
him. In the end Serapio was blinded because of a very odd reason or
crime, having HOPE and DREAMS.
The main issue discussed in this play is the social injustice and
inequality, which is always present. This connects with the blinding
of Mang Serapio that symbolizes how powerful those people higher
than the beggar are and how those people contaminate their selves
with vainglory pushing the weak just to save their faces. They could
handicap another man and limit his/her actions. Being a blind man
means a man is limited to see and that is to see the truth and
eventually fight his/her own right [continues]
