Editorial Reviews

Criticas
Fuentes's (1928- ) best-selling classic exposes the abuse of power in Mexican society during the early decades of the 20th century as its unscrupulous protagonist, Artemio Cruz, recalls his life while lying on his deathbed. As his mind wanders between past and present, Cruz delineates his change from an idealistic revolutionary to a corrupt and merciless capitalist. Overall, this 1962 masterpiece captures Mexico's pursuit of wealth at the expense of moral values and insinuates the failure of the Mexican Revolution. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
