Zapata The Ideology of a Peasant Revolutionary Zapata The Ideology of a Peasant Revolutionary portrays the fight of the Mexicans and Indians to gain freedom from the people who were superior to them The powerful story tells about a group of peasants who put their trust one man Zapata who led them into a revolution Zapata written by Robert P Milon is a very confusing work He uses many wordy details and jumps between events in a very fluttery way When new people make an entrance in the book he does not make a good transition between the events He could have added more scenes to help the dialogue move smoother The author also jumped around with a very confusing time-line Emiliano Zapata was born on August 8 1879 in Anenecuilco Zapata was the son of a mestizo peasant who trained and sold horses He was orphaned at the age of 17 and had to look after his brothers and sisters In 1897 he was arrested for taking part in a protest From this you can see that he was a hard worker from the start He was mestizo and therefore oppressed by the upper class In 1909 he was elected president of village defense committee This part is very moving because it happens early in the story but it shows the first glimmer of hope for these people By 1910 Zapata was already planning things and he led his people on two peaceful demonstrations This was the start of a revolution with Zapata and his followers letting everyone know that they would not take it anymore The story goes on about the struggle of Zapata and his followers but by page 36 the hero is lying dead from a trap he fell into Being that the book starts on page 11 the central character dies rather quickly for the whole book to be about him After Zapata dies the author attempts to flash back
