Mariano Azuela

Mariano Azuela González (January 1, 1873 – March 1, 1952) was a Mexican author and physician, best known for his fictional stories of the Mexican Revolution of 1910. He wrote novels, works for theatre and literary criticism. He is the first of the "novelists of the Revolution," and he influenced other Mexican novelists of social protest.

Among Azuela's first published writing were some short pieces for the magazine ''Gil Blas Cómico'', where he wrote under the pen name of "Beleño", and his writing published under the heading ''Impresiones de un estudiante'' (''Impressions of a Student'') in 1896. His first novel, ''Maria Luisa'', was written in 1907, followed by ''Los fracasados'' (''The Failures'') in 1908, and ''Mala yerba'' (''Weeds'') in 1909. The theme of his beginning novels are about fate. He wrote of the social life of Mexicans during the Díaz dictatorship. After experiencing the Mexican Revolution first-hand, his writing style became sarcastic and disillusioned. His first novel with the Revolution theme is ''Andrés Pérez, maderista'' in 1911, followed by ''Sin Amor'' (''Without Love'') in 1912, and his most popular, ''Los de abajo'' (''The Underdogs'') in 1915. He continued to write short works and novels influenced by the Revolution. It includes ''El camarada Pantoja'' (''Comrade Pantoja'') in 1937, ''Regina Landa'' in 1939, ''La nueva burguesía'' (''The New Bourgeoisie'') in 1941, and ''La maldición'' (''The Curse'', published posthumously) in 1955. These works mainly depicts the satirical picture of life in post revolutionary Mexico sharply and angrily stigmatizing demagoguery and political intrigue. Provided by Wikipedia
