Meteorological phenomena are important factors in Nelly Rosario’s work, El canto del agua. The main characters are framed by their social space of poverty, need, hunger, and evil sects. That background of misery is also an element of strength for the main characters. In the cosmos of the poor, surrounded by misery and broken dreams, philosophy and meditation are reflected in the actions of the characters in the story, especially when they go against their own principles and beliefs. In the novel, there is a contrast between the world of the poor, which is arid, dirty, and dark, and the world of dreams and escapism, which although not a tangible one, is enchanting and powerful. Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Rosa Maria Briton, Angela Hernandez, and Isabel Allende, among many, have explored and populated that surrealistic space. Rosario uses meteorological phenomena as part of the narrative and to represent characters moods in the story. This technique has been successfully used by Garcia Marquez in most of his short stories and novels. Humanism is a source of inspiration and action in this novel. meteorological phenomena as part of the narrative and to facilitate moods in the story.
