A all written insight into both historical Mexico and the mind of D.H. Lawrence.
This 84 page essay was written in 1927 and describes D.H. Lawrence's experience visiting in a part of Mexico where the indigenous population speaks Zapotec (Oaxaca?). It is a fairly sensitive description of how the people live, how they survive, how they advance. It is written from the perspective of the times and so can seem harsh and degrading at times. There are moments of introspection and insight concerning such topics as the theater and how the white "monkey" defines his social mores. I would recommend this to anyone wanting a fresh picture of historical Mexico.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
