But this is only given on condition that he build a road through his property and clears away the Indian huasipungos or holdings in order to make way for buildings.
The novel describes this operation in which many Indian lives are lost on the road-building and in which famine hits the village when there is no longer food produced on the land. The Indians finally rise in protest, only to be defeated by the troops sent against them.
Icaza is not concerned with showing human Indians since the situation he describes is essentially inhuman. Both oppressor and victim had become degenerate, and the Indians are invariably used as if they are animals or objects.
For instance, the wife of an Indian is taken as wet nurse by the white woman and her own child starves. In places too difficult for horses to pass, the Indians carry their masters on their shoulders.
The degradation reaches its lowest when the Indians steal rotten meat to satisfy their hunger and one of them dies. The huasipunggo glimpse of the Indian village almost at the beginning of the novel sets the note of sadness and sordidness which pervades the whole book… The whole village and everything in it is pictured as crouching down in humiliation; animals and men live on the same level, and the high Andes, magnificent as the mountains are, only serve as a wall which encircles the prison of the village.
Other, more detailed summary passed down comps notes. The novel begins by detailing the land-owning Pereira family. The patriarch, Don Alfonso, has fallen on hard times and so he is forced by his debt-holding uncle, Julio, into striking a deal with some gringos.
So, Alfonso and his family, including his recently-deflowered daughter Lolita and his resumenn, Blanquita, go off to the family hacienda to set about clearing out the Indians.
I guess he is a farmhand. Anyway, he beats his wife but they have awesome make-up sex and fall asleep. They enlist the help of an Indian girl, but she runs away after her infant son, carelessly left by the majordomo Policarpio in the care of his mistress, dies.
So, he goes out and looks for another wet nurse. In that scene, the narration describes the horrible circumstances in which Indian women work and Indian children live. No one is healthy because no one has enough food to eat or enough nutrition. Alfonso becomes friends with the local priest, who helps him buy more land and get more Indians to work for him.
Not long after, because he often sneaks home at night even though it is 2 and a half hours away from the work site, Chiliquinga is so angry when he discovers this that he becomes stupid the next day while chopping at a tree with an axe and cuts his foot. It becomes infected badly and so he is taken back to the hacienda.
Rodriguez is the huasipungk Indian foreman, who has only one eye.
En Las Calles
After being healed by a witch doctor, Chiliquinga is lame and charged with watching the field of corn. One night, the cows escape through their fence and trample part of the corn. Later, Alfonso begins to get delusions of grandeur. He is arranging big spectacles with the priest in order to draw more workers into the creation of the road necessary for the gringo employees to come in and withdraw whatever natural resources are there.
When Policarpio suggests that the Indians will not move their huasipungos out of the way, Alfonso decides that he will flood them out by not unclogging the nearby dam. Later, the inaugural spectacle attracts a ton of resuen that get to work alongside the Indians that have already been forced to start working. The next part describes the arduous construction of a road that claims the lives of a number of Indians. They are abused by Rodriguez and Alfonso, who care nothing for their lives.
The engineer who has been hired wishes to quit, but Alfonso convinces him to stay by noting that his professional future could be at stake here. Eventually a road is constructed and Alfonso is hailed by the newspapers as a patriot. Indians are rfsumen mentioned in the articles at all. One day, a dead ox is discovered.
Alfonso has some Indians bury the corpse, but they go back at night and dig it up. The rotten meat gets some people sick and some die. Alfonso blames them for getting themselves ill. Some gringos come and ask that the land where the huasipungos have re-settled be cleared for a mill. They cause Alfonso and the resumne to run away. They ransack the house, kill the sheriff, and then armed forces come and kill all the Indians.
At the end, there is a lingering cry of the Indians to fight for their homes: Posted by X X at Newer Post Older Post Home.
