About this product
- DescriptionNellie Campobello, a prominent Mexican writer and velist of the Revolution, played an important role in Mexico's cultural renaissance in the 1920s and early 1930s, along with such writers as Rafael Muz and Gregorio Lopez y Fuentes and artists Diego Rivera, Orozco, and others. Her two vellas, <cite>Cartucho (first published in 1931) and <cite>My Mother's Hands (first published as <cite>Las mas de Mama in 1938), are autobiographical evocations of a childhood spent amidst the violence and turmoil of the Revolution in Mexico. Campobello's memories of the Revolution in the rth of Mexico, where Pancho Villa was a popular hero and a personal friend of her family, show t only the stark realism of <cite>Cartucho but also the tender lyricism of <cite>My Mother's Hands. They are teworthy, too, as a first-person account of the female experience in the early years of the Mexican Revolution and unique in their presentation of events from a child's perspective.
