Mariano Azuela

Biography

Mariano Azuela was born in Lagos de Moreno in 1873. He studied medicine at Guadalajara and then worked as military doctor with the revolutionary troops under Pancho Villa in the Mexican Civil War. His experience led him to write Los de Abajo (The Underdogs), his best-known novel, in 1915, which he had published in El Paso the following year. He returned to Mexico and continued working as a doctor while publishing a series of novels, many of them with the Mexican Civil War as a background. He died in Mexico City in 1952.
