AZUELA THE UNDERDOGS PDF

He escapes to the mountains and forms a group of rebels who support the Mexican Revolution. The whole novel has various reading levels and the character names represent forces or ideals beyond the characters themselves. Some of them are prototypes of the kind of people that was dragged into the revolution, like Demetrio, whose name is associated with the goddess of farming and agriculture Demeter ; the dog, Palomo, killed at the beginning who symbolizes peace. With a concise, unsympathetic tone, Azuela takes us along with this band of outcasts as they move along the hills of the country, seemingly struggling for a cause whose leader changes from day to night. The rebels, not very certain of what or whom they are fighting for, practice the abuse and injustice they used to suffer in the hands of the old leaders.

He abandons his family, expecting that they will not bother them unless he is there, and he plans his revenge against the Mexican government in the mountains, where he starts a resistance of rebels like himself.

He recruits a man named Luis Cervantes , a well-educated man who was burned by the government in some unfair dealings, causing him to swear vengeance against them.

He is more like a criminal who uses the Revolution as an excuse to commit crimes. Eventually, their group is joined by La Pintada , which the novelist translates, "War Paint," a woman who is gritty and powerful. Together, this group travels through the mountains. Eventually, it occurs to them that they are truly not powerful enough to overthrow the Mexican establishment.

They are too few, and they are all poor. When they confront the army, they are outmaneuvered and outgunned, and they always end up retreating. He is accurate and talented, and he kills many men, but he is outnumbered, and the novel ends with him realizing he will die.

The Underdogs Part 1

Shelves: mexico , 4-star-lit-fiction A novella set in Mexico during the Revolution of the early 20th century. I didnt know anything about the author before reading the book, but seemingly he had been a military doctor with the rebel army of Pancho Villa, and during rest periods he made notes about incidents he had witnessed. I assume some of these were incorporated into the novel. Cervantes pretends to be a convert to the revolutionary cause, although in reality he deserted the government army for personal reasons. Demetrio is completely uneducated but ferocious in battle and skilled in tactics. Mostly they became outlaws almost by accident — by getting drunk and fighting with a policeman, or arguing with a landowner, and so on. Becoming a revolutionary allows each man to take back his pride.
