Mexican revolution, 1910-1940 Paper 2:  Villismo  and The Underdogs Prompt .   Read   Mariano   Azuela,   The   Underdogs   ( Los   de   abajo ,   1915),   the   classic  novelistic account of the Revolution and a short study of peasants and intellectuals caught  up in the whirlwind of  villismo . Note that Azuela himself, a doctor from upland Jalisco,  became involved in the revolutionary struggle, first in support of Madero (1910-1913),  and then as a surgeon in the  villista  army fighting Huerta (1913-1914).  The Underdogs  is  a biting and satirical memoir of this later period, written in a stark, realist prose mode.  Please write a critical commentary (2 pp. double-spaced) in which you answer the  following question:  how effectively in your view does Azuela capture the animating spirit  of villismo as a popular revolutionary movement?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
