Soulecito rated it it was amazing Dec 03, Jun 09, Liliana rated it really liked it. Already Usigli introduces themes of doubt, family dispute and tension, and appearances, which is first mentioned by Miguel, Rubio’s son, on the fourth page.
The play was daring for its time in that it used the true language of contemporary politics, a first for Mexican literature.

Rubio claims to be the deceased hero, telling the professor that, disillusioned with the course of the Revolution, he had embraced anonymity until thirty years thereafter. Already Usigli introduces themes of doubt, family dispute an Although the actual language is relatively easy to understand and the themes of appearances and self-identification are overtly emphasized, I consider this play to be a wonderful insight into the mind of artists during the early to mid twentieth century.

One thing that stuck out to me was how Usigli addressed the idea of the Mexican “mask. But I would argue that there are in fact three. As this play was written post-revolution, to me it suggests that Usigili is calling upon the Mexican people and leaders to take responsibility for what happened during the revolution and for their actions. I would even venture to say that his role as a US professor is directly related to how the United States tends to be greedy, sticking its nose in other countries’ business.

Some readers may criticize the quick development, overuse, and frequent mentioning or insinuation of the theme, but I believe this writing style to be a result of the authors’ during gseticulador time, s, own identity crisis.

Murderers could pose as heroes, thieves as diplomats and charlatans as founts of wisdom.

Generally, I do not enjoy reading play’s however I for me, this was an enjoyable read and I think that I can attribute it to both the combination of the plot as well as the way that Usigli constructed the play so that felt that it flowed quickly.
