Surname 2at the time when the novel was being written. Mexican revolution happened in the 20thcentury whereby Mexican social and political systems were challenged. The revolution also provided a suitable platform for one to question the existing values and structures as per the context of the book. Mexican revolution referred to the time of change whereby there was conflict between the old government and the new rebels as they opposed the politics of that time and era.
