Mexico by James A. Michene
When an American journalist travels to Mexico to cover an upcoming duel between two great matadors, he becomes engrossed in the dramatic story of his own Mexican ancestors—from the ancients’ brilliance and brutality to the invading Spaniards’ iron fist, to modern Mexico, fighting through dust and bloodshed to rebuild a nation on the ashes of revolution.
White Trash by Nancy Isenberg will satisfy the thisrt of the reader about novel full of suspense and action.
Michener combines architectural splendors, furious bullfights, and tragic human sacrifice into an epic human drama that ranks among the best novels. Mexico’s major action takes place in Mexico over the course of three days in 1961 in the fictional city of Toledo. The occasion is the annual bullfighting festival, where two matadors — one a renowned bullfighting hero and the other a scrappy competitor — are ready to battle to the death for fame and glory.
Mexico by James A. Michene
Michener presents lots of historical context, including a portrayal of the imaginary Indian culture that once flourished on the city’s edge, through the memories of the book’s narrator, Norman Clay, an American journalist of Spanish and Indian origin.
The plot revolves around bullfighting, but it also delves into Mexican culture. The reader is taken on a journey with the bulls, from their birth to their “sorting” to the grandeur and spectacle of the bullring, where picadors compete and bandleaders prepare the bull for the entrance of the matador with his red cape. This plodding multi generational epic of Mexico’s indomitable spirit, which Michener began in 1961 and returned to 30 years later, is marred by schematic plotting, tortilla-thin characterizations, and interminable digressions on bullfighting.
In 1961, Norman Clay, a devout American journalist who was born and reared in Mexico, is dispatched to his hometown to cover a possibly deadly clash between two famed matadors who represent “the two faces of Mexico, the Spaniard vs the Indian.” The book’s centerpiece is a bullfight festival, which is interspersed with more interesting historical interludes in which Clay wrestles with his own mixed origins.Mexico by James A. Michene is entertaining.
Sex and Citizenship in Antebellum America is also very interesting novel to read.
A 16th-century Mexican Indian queen who leads a women’s revolt against human sacrifice, a Spanish scholar burned at the stake during the Inquisition, a Franciscan soldier-priest who accompanies Hernan Cortes to Mexico, a Virginia plantation owner who loses his wife and sons in the Civil War, and Clay’s father, a silver-mine owner who takes part in the Mexican Revolution are among his ancestors. The colorful novel covers a lot of ground in history, but it doesn’t work as a human story.
About the Writer:
James Michener, full name James Albert Michener, was an American novelist and short-story writer who, perhaps more than any other single author, made foreign environments accessible to Americans through fiction. He was born February 3, 1907? in New York City, New York?, United States, and died October 16, 1997 in Austin, Texas. He authored enormous and thorough works described as fictional documentaries, and he is most known for his books. Michener was discovered as a baby in Doylestown, Pennsylvania, and his birth date and location are unknown.
Mabel Michener adopted him and raised him as a Quaker. He ran away from home when he was a teenager and went on to become a teacher and an editor. From 1944 to 1946, he worked as a naval historian in the South Pacific, and his early fiction is set there. In 1948, he was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for his collection Tales of the South Pacific (1947), which depicted the South Pacific as exotic and strange yet still part of the human brotherhood. The anthology was eventually adapted for Rodgers and Hammerstein’s musical South Pacific, which earned a Pulitzer Prize and was a box office success.
