Notes on the Humanities of the Mexican Revolution. In brief, the Mexican Revolution began when Francisco I. A violent civil war ensued goytortuq Madero was assassinated. A general synoptic outline of the events of the Mexican Revolution are found in the Mexican country notes. The literary genre of the novel and mural art are the two major humanistic expressions that responded to and arose from the events of the Mexican Revolution.

In particular, both humanistic forms can be seen at the center of movement toward regionalism that dominates Latin American humanities in the 20 th century. Another way to view this extraordinarily rich phenomenon which is due to a major historical event is to say that this intense period is a transition between Mexican naturalism that flourished at the end of the 19 th century and 20 th century humanistic trends that develop out of Mexico ‘s revolutionary art forms.

It became a model for pensatuva societies throughout Latin America. Among the issues they promoted were freedom of speech and ideas in schools, and the reaffirmation of cultural, ethical and ethnic values inherent throughout Latin America.

His early works were generally written in the naturalist mode that dominated Mexican cultural expression before the Revolution.

His most important work is Los de abajo ; The Underdogs. In this and later works, he demonstrates his talent for keen observation of social reality. At the same time, as a representative Mexican he portrays the Catholic Christian aspects of the Mexican character and social institutions.

Los de abajo dramatically chronicles the progressive march of the Mexican people toward social maturity, but, at the same time, he highlights the quasi-mythical destiny of la raza mexicana the Mexican people in their ethnic identity with its inherent pensstiva of character and its age-old stoicism in the face of defeat. This novel, therefore, deploys a tone of bitter despair and the pathos of heroic failure.


It is, in sum, an anti-epic that shows the heroism of the collective will of the raza mexicana. He worked in the intellectual and humanistic fields of mural art, journalism, politics, and law. He personally lived the events and traumas of the Mexican Revolution from beginning to end and beyond.

He earned his living as the director of several world-class newspapers: In other words, he develops characters a narrative figures that fight and struggle to be transformed into novelistic protagonists.

He was a teacher, journalist, and novelist who fought with Mexicans against the American invasion of Veracruz at the beginning of the Mexican Revolution. He fought alongside the forces of Carranza against Pancho Villa’s forces.

In his most famous novel, El indiohe uses stylization and allegory to depict life goytortuaa the downtrodden masses in terms of the clash between two cultures i. The overall tone and effect is that of cold objectivity. For notes on Diego Gytortua, see: For notes on Siqueiros and Orozco, see:
