|Title:||Los de Abajo: An Early Novel of the Land?||Authors:||Baker, Pascale||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/9173||Date:||Jan-2013||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.||Type of material:||Book Chapter||Publisher:||Cambridge Scholars Publishing||Keywords:||Los de abajo;Mexican revolution;Novel of the Mexican revolution||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||Is part of:||Alternberg, T.
