Title: Los de Abajo: An Early Novel of the Land?
Authors: Baker, Pascale
Permanent link: http://hdl.handle.net/10197/9173

Abstract: In her chapter, Pascale Baker offers a fresh perspective on Los de abajo by Mariano Azuela, linking it to the nineteenth-century civilization versus barbarism polemic, in particular to Domingo Faustino Sarmiento's Facundo. In her reading, the text's ambivalence towards the Mexican Revolution, and modernity more widely, anticipates a key characteristic of telluric novels such as Don Segundo Sombra by Ricardo Güiraldes and Doña Bárbara by Rómulo Gallegos.
