The story tells of an angel who comes to a small, South American town masked as a broken-down, old man and describes the way the townspeople mistreat him because of his appearance and seemingly undeveloped sense of humanity. Because the people refused to look beyond the angel's tattered clothes and missing teeth, they did not allow themselves to find out the real meaning behind the old man's visit. The writer addresses several points within the story: the fearful lesson of the angel's story; how the spider woman compares with human truth; how the story teaches a lesson about life; and how human nature is represented through events and characters in the story.
