Item description for La bola (Spanish Edition) by Emilio Rabasa...

Emilio Rabasa (1856-1930), lawyer, historian, literary critic, essayist and novelist, besides being a journalist and active participant in politics, stands out among the Mexican intellectuals of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Considered to have introduced realism into Mexican fiction, Rabasa's writing reveals the influence of Prez Galds as well as earlier Mexican writers, ranging from Jos Joaqun Fernndez de Lizardi's El periquillo sarniento (1816) to Jos Toms de Cullar's Baile y cochino (1886). A perceptive literary critic, journalist and well-informed historian, he was one of the founders of the newspaper El Universal. Although he wrote influential political analyses like La constitucin y la dictadura.(1912) and La evolucin histrica de Mxico (1920), Rabasa is best remembered for his five novels, which share recurrent characters and political themes, or rather, criticism of politicians who are unethical in their struggle for power. La bola is the first of this series. What is la bola? La bola is not the Revolution; unlike the Revolution, which centers on the idea, develops national passion, modifies an institution and promotes the involvement of citizens, la bola does not demand or represent principles: it is born and it is dissolved in a short natural and moral period, and requires ignorance. Revolution is born out of the world's progress, but la bola is born out of ignorance and the inevitable backwardness of poor nations. This is la bola that Rabasa depicts so perceptively through the young, articulate and earnest character of Juanillo Quiones' experience and observations, combining elements that lead us to suspect it of being an autobiographical story, filled with caciques, shyster lawyers, rogues, turncoats and prevaricators. It is a world in which to get rich, to take unfair advantage. It is a world of ill-considered destructive impulse, which ends with a return to the status quo. Emilio Rabasa in his first novel, is describing not the Revolution, but la bola. It is certainly one of the best novels in all of Mexican literature, and this edition's introduction and notes by Professor Luis Leal elucidate Rabasa's text to make a reading of the novel an unforgettable experience.
