University Of Pittsburgh Press. 1st Of This Critical Edition. Very Good In Slightly Worn Wrappers. Translated from the Spanish by Frederick H. Fornoff. 165 pages. paperback. Cover illustration by Juan Soriano. 0822954842. keywords: Literature Translated Mexico Latin America. inventory # 19322. FROM THE PUBLISHER - ‘Azuela, more than any other novelist of the Mexican Revolution, lifts up the heavy stone of history to see what there is underneath it. What he finds is the story of the colony that no one really narrated before.’ - Carlos Fuentes. ‘To The Underdogs we may apply the expression of Walt Whitman: ‘It is not a book, it is a body pulsing with life.’ ‘ - Le Monde, Paris. This epic novel of the Mexican Revolution was originally published in installments in 1915 in an El Paso, Texas, newspaper. Since then, THE UNDERDOGS - the story of a courageous Indian farmer who almost unwittingly rises to a generalship in Pancho Villa’s rebel army-has steadily gained recognition in Mexico and Latin America, winning renown as the classic novel about the war. Despite the international interest in Latin American fiction generated by writers like Carlos Fuentes and Gabriel Garcia Marquez since the 1960’s, The Underdogs has yet to receive the full recognition it deserves in North America. This new translation by Frederick Fornoff, based on the most authentic manuscript, captures the flavor of Azuela’s masterpiece-his lyrical portrayal of culture and landscape; his sparkling, spare style. Critical essays offer historical and literary perspectives on the text. Ahead of his time, Azuela in this 1915 novel challenged conventional narrative technique in ways North American writers would not adopt for decades. The novel is essentially ambiguous-it can be read as revolutionary, or as antirevolutionary. The same qualities that made this novel so innovative also make it read well today. The Pittsburgh Editions of Latin American Literature are based on the Colección Archivos, a landmark series of critical editions of twentieth-centiny Latin American fiction, poetry, and essays. This important collection was created through agreements with the governments of France, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, and Mexico, with funding provided by ALLCA and UNESCO. The translations in the Pittsburgh series will make this valuable and influential body of literature accessible to North American readers. (original title: Los de abajo).
