Relatively little has been written concerning Mariano Azuela and his works in comparison to critical material on Mexican authors. Since Azuela is the recognized novelist of the the Mexican Revolution, it is necessary that intimate acquaintance with the man and his works be made in order to understand the problems, feelings, and aspirations of the Mexican people immediately prior to and during the Revolution.
The aim of this thesis is to examine critically the novels of Azuela in view of the known facts of the Mexican Revolution principally as they touch upon the religious, social, economic, and political aspects.
