Description: The Villagersis a story of the ruthless exploitation and extermination of an Indian village of Ecuador by its greedy landlord. First published in 1934, itis here available for the first time in an authorized English translation. nbsp; A realistic tale in the best tradition of the novels of social protest of Zola, Dostoshy;evsky, José Eustasio Rivera, and the Mexican novels of the Revolution,The Villagers (Huasipungo)shocked and horrified its readers, and brought its author mingled censure and acclaim, when itwas first published in 1934. nbsp; Deeply moving in the dramatic intensity of its relentless evolution and stark human suffering, Icaza’s novel has been translated into eleven foreign languages, including Russian and Chinese, and has gone through numerous editions in Spanish, including a revised and enlarged edition in 1953,on which this translation is based, but ithas never before been authorized for translation into English. His first novel, but not his first published work,The Villagersis still considered by most critics as Icaza’s best, and itis widely acclaimed as one of the most significant works in contemporary Latin American literature. nbsp; Thirty years after its original publication in Ecuador,The Villagersstill carries a powerful message for the contemporary world and an urgent warning. The conditions here portrayed prevail in these areas, even today.The Villagersis an indictment of the latifundista system and a caustic picture of the native worker who, with little expectation from life, finds himself a victim of an antiquated feudal system aided and abetted by a grasping clergy and an indifferent governshy;ment.
