Fiction LatinoLatina Studies Daniel Venegas's novel first published in Los Angeles in 1928 and long lost to the public portrays with wit tempered by empathy the harsher aspects of America during the fabled Jazz Age With bawdy humor and. It seems to me judging by the ratings and comments that this book is NOT an easy one to appreciate for those strongly identifying themselves with today's American culture and it's point of perspective The book might be recommended for Chicano Study courses but there isn't a lot in there that owes itself to what you can consider today the Mexican American diaspora at allThe adventures of Don Chipotle is 100% Mexican If you really want to tune in into Daniel Venegas' intention and perspective you have to understand that If you haven't read Mexican literature or really understand the Mexican way of criticizing with irony but dignity you'll miss this book BIG timeThis is not a book to entertain nor to make fun of any particular group or social class This book is a cry of indignation at the situation Venegas perceived both in Mexico at the time and in the US pertaining to the Mexican immigrant under the generic circumstances he describesThe book is NOT vulgar If you think so you got it wrong This book is honest coarsely honest But life is coarse especially with those who live through circumstances such as the ones the characters go throughAnd further the author does not direct the book towards an ignorant or unintelligent readership If we mean ignorant for lack of education well whoever was the person reading it then could not be illiterate Second the style of narrative he uses seemingly from an informal and unsophisticated narrator only camouflages his poignant and humane not political criticism In Mexican literature it's Pito Perez in Mexican films it's Cantinflas But In the US a happy happy place regardless of situation or circumstances Venegas manner of expressing his frustration and criticism is certainly NOT welcomed by today's everything is great standards What is truly unfair is to judge and comment on a book that puts the reader in the place of a struggling immigrant community in a harsher and abusive times that we live in and downgrading it on the basis of one's 2011 Ipod Mac Net American comfort just because it insults one's sensibilities Perhaps it's that his criticism comes in too raw and direct for some to stomachI'm sure Venegas El Malcriado reaaaaally enjoys this

Razor sharp insight THE ADVENTURES OF DON CHIPOTE relates the hapless journey of the poor rural farmer Don Chipote de JesAAs MarAAa DomAAnguez who naively leaves behind his wife and children in Mexico to seek riches in the United States. This was the last of a handful of Chicano novels that I had acuired at some point in the past It's a novel written by a Chicano writer FOR ChicanosMexican migrants in the 1920's and 1930's It warns against coming to the United States vividly painting the TRUE experiences a migrant would have coming to the US Hard labor little pay dishonest people both American and Mexican and temptations abound for those planning to head to the US and this novel attempts to prevent people from doing that in a humorous fashionObviously there is a Don uixote influence to the novel; it features a series of adventures with the titular sorry just wanted to use that word Don Chipote along with his faithful dog Skinenbones and friend Policarpo; each ends in mishap of some sort One can tell the type of audience it is for based on the type of humor there are fart jokes throughout the novel that would probably make the blue collar worker laugh harder than it might the literary set that the novelist may have come fromThe translation of the novel is interesting as well it has only been published in its original Spanish and I believe this is a first time translator There are is much phrasing and use of language that seem consistent with the time periodor maybe a little later I'm reminded of the old Looney Tunes cartoon where the animation matches exactly what the narrator is saying cats and dogs coming down from the sky when it's raining cats and dogs The way the Chicano characters speak may also seem to be a choice by the translator; it's akin to what any poorly educated person of any ethnicity might sound likeAgain I was surprised how interesting this book was; reading the introduction one realizes how important this one single book could be to our understanding of Chicano culture during the 1920's and 1930's and what it really meant and MEANS to be a migrant worker coming to a foreign country in search of a better life but only finding those who live off one's hard work and naivety

Where he is assured one can sweep up gold dust from the streets and suck the nectar from the tree of life The author's earthy satire is faithfully rendered by translator Ethriam Cash Brammer; edited and introduced by NicolAA s Kanellos. I don't necessarily mind a book that tells about its characters' bowel movements than their souls and motivations And I have been known to overlook not so good writing in a novel of obvious social or historical importance But Don Chipote which is generously introduced by Nicolås Kanellos as a picaresue depiction of the Mexican American experience in the United States pushes even my limits I'm not sure who Daniel Venegas believed his audience was but whoever he was writing for he must've had low expectations for their intelligence This book is like a transcript of a bad vaudeville routine Paragraph long descriptions of farts sentence long summaries of important plot and character points and an occasional political side comment from the author It is not a good book Don Chipote is however the third consecutive book I have read for my Mexican American Fiction class that is lauded in its introduction as the First Chicano Novel Apparently that distinction like Chipote's dreams of wealth and fame in the United States is neither uncontested nor easily won Droit musulman.
