Mariano Azuela was a writer who lived during the Mexican revolution. He used his talent as a writer to describe everything that he lived and perceived during the Mexican revolution in the book, The Underdogs. This book shows us many examples of people who never knew exactly the objective of the struggle. “Do you want to know why I’m a rebel? Well, I’ll tell you. Before the revolution, I had my land all plowed, see, and just right for sowing and if it hadn’t been for a little quarrel with Don Mónicoâ€¦.?”  Demetrio was a rebel who really did not know why he was fighting, his perspective was very individualistic and it does not show a unified revolutionary idea. He began the struggle for personal interests, because he did not agree with the manner in which the government of Huerta treated people. But this does not make him a hero. Demetrio Macias is the main character of the book The Underdogs. Demetrio Macias did not have an education; he did not know read or write. He knew that something bad was happening in this time. For this reason he decided to be a rebel but he did not think about what would happen after the revolution or even what kind of government he really wanted. Demetrio just fought for something, but he did not know exactly his goals, because his goals were individualist, personal. isional president of the republicâ€¦ what’s your opinion, general? Asked Natera. Demetrio shrugged his shoulders: it seems to meThe wish of Demetrio Macias was to join the army of Villa, where they would fight for the same objective, justice, a country where the corrupt government does not steal their land or their wives. However, this objective changed because of his materialism and vanity.
