Yo soy major que muchos de ellos. At the beginning there is some tension among the members of his family as to why they had to move and their desire to go back to living the way they were before. Rubio becomes consumed by this lie, against the will of his family, and it eventually leads to his death. Usigli uses Rubio to comment on the false idea of heroism that the people of Mexico had during this era.

Following the Mexican Revolution, the people had hoped to have solidified their national and individual identities, but this book shows how everyone was still searching for their own identity through the revolution. They also were looking for heroes in the wrong places, putting their faith and trust in the corruption politicians of the time.

Usigli also hints at political corruption and the perils of becoming involved in this system. I really enjoyed reading this play, which was surprising because I typically do not enjoy reading plays. Although the ending is kind of predictable, it was a fun play to read and I would recommend it to anyone interested in reading a Spanish play, as it was not very difficult to understand and moved along quickly! It places an emphasis on the way that the Mexican people would elevate the status of war heroes and politicians after the Revolution in order to have something else to believe in after the armed conflicts ceased.

However, the corruption of Navarro shows the evident pitfalls of war heroes turned politicians that have too much power. The characterization of Navarro demonstrates the possibility for a new wave of dictators after the Revolution. I also found the different reactions to the lie of those close to Cesar to be an interesting means of characterization. The negative reaction towards his father of Miguel could be interpreted as a change in the mindsets of younger generations.

Overall this play was a good method to show the ways in which the Revolution affected societal outlooks and politics following the conflicts. He happens to share the same name as a hero during the Prof. He happens to share the same name as a hero during the revolutionary war. This causes a Harvard professor to mistaken him for the hero and lead Cesar to identify as the hero and not the college professor that he truly is.

Usigli shows how people struggled to keep a certain image as he criticized the political leaders in society along with ordinary people. This explains a lot of the controversy that existed when the play was published. This uplifts the idea that the people should seek the truth and be careful to establish a sense of heroism in political leaders.

Without this, the Mexican revolution would continue endlessly under the realm of politicians. I recommend this play to anyone who enjoys plays and the topics of false identities and political corruption within the Mexican revolution. I believe overall that Usigli is making a commentary on the superficial nature of the idea of heroism through both Rubio and Navarro.

Not only does Rubio impersonate a deceased revolutionary, but Navarro shields some aspects of truth to present himself as a better candidate. Their final conversation shined light on the falsehood of heroism and how the perception of the people is what creates your identity, not yourself. I really enjoyed this play because it kept me interested until the very end with the suspenseful plot and the character development.

Jun 09, Liliana rated it really liked it. This work therefore expresses those feelings in the form of a theatrical play lead by Rubio. The government cancelled several performances, and writers were hired to severely criticize the performances that were allowed to go on. I read this play for Spanish lit class when I was in college.
