Thanks for telling us about the problem. Written in the late What is truth? Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want uxigli read. Apr 28, Jennifer Johnson rated it it was ok. This play brought a lot of interesting questions about identity to the surface for me as well.

I was very aware of the idea rodlfo deception as I was reading, and the questioning of whether deception is in fact lying or not.

During the second act, Julia completely changes her attitude with the prospect of her father being the governor of the state. Already Usigli introduces themes of doubt, family dispute an Although the actual language is relatively easy to understand and the themes of appearances usiyli self-identification are overtly emphasized, I consider this play to be a wonderful insight into the mind of artists during the early to mid twentieth century.

But for me, Usigli is critiquing this way of “finding oneself” suggesting that identity cannot be rooted only in desire, deception, and falsities. The revolution destroyed the old order and made room for anyone to be whatever they wanted to be. To me, Usigli uses his characters as symbols of the Mexican Revolution.


Even then it was met with hostility.

Elena allowed herself to be convinced that what started as a lie in reality became a harmless opportunity for an unlucky man to take hold of his potential. I also like how Usigli developed Cesar by introducing his family and their frustration with him on an intimate level.

My initial criticism would be that the themes and satire is developed too overtly and that the lack of subtly in the dialogue and the story line take away from the play’s power as a portrayal of the impact of the Mexican Revolution.

Although I enjoyed reading the book, I do not think that I would choose to read it again; however, that being said, I think it presents the revolution from an interesting perspective of identity and one’s possession of one’s self versus one’s nation. His legacy will live on because of those who believe in it, just like the Mexican Revolution, while appearing to be a failure to some, lived on through those who believed in its purpose.

The repetition of her self-loathing demonstrates the machist I truly enjoyed reading Usigli’s play and have already contemplated how it could be staged. Alexis rated it really liked it Nov 16, El Gesticulador allows the reader to q This play is a perfect combination of raw human emotions and a reflection upon a person’s ability to reinvent themselves.

Want to Read saving…. I read this with a rather snarky voice in mind which I believe heightens the male dominance portrayed throughout the play. Hector Torres rated it it was amazing Oct 05, Oct gestciulador, Guy Arcuri rated it really liked it. El gesticulador by Rodolfo Usigli.

Matthew Leonard rated it really liked it Sep 22, Jul 28, Neal rated it it was amazing. Already Usigli introduces themes of doubt, family dispute and tension, and appearances, which is first mentioned by Miguel, Rubio’s son, on the fourth page.

First, the idealistic martyr who dies early in the war, the professor who inherits and tries to keep alive the revolution’s legacy but fails, and then the politician who tries to evoke the ideals of the hero but is killed by the strongman and only ends up perpetrating the violence.
