abstract

Marta Portal defines the Mexican Revolution as “a blast of reality”. The event follows an historical process, one with strong social and symbolical implications. Referring to the novels of the Mexican Revolution, Marta Portal also states: “they try to unveil and remake the world to other perspectives by denouncing the lies and the alienation of human relationships”. This articles only reviews four literary samples of that reality: Los de abajo, by Mariano Anzuela; El águila y la serpiente, a novel by Luis Martín Guzmán; El resplandor, by Mauricio Magdaleno; and Los conspiradores by Jorge Ibargüengoitia, an ironic account about the conspiracy lead by Hidalgo under the cry ‘Ajetreo’, the first revolutionary expression born under the threat of social and political resentment in colonial Mexico, against of the Metropolis.
