Then rumors of typhus in Mexico led to a series of policies that involved giving border crossers, as well as those entering the hospitals and jails of El Paso a chemical bath to kill potentially disease carrying lice.
My point here is to turn attention back to El Paso and the borderlands to recast the novel of the Mexican revolution in the transnational terms of the war itself. It should be noted that in the days following the publication of the final serialized installment of the novel in El Paso del Norte the Battle of Nogales, Sonora carried over across the border, involving some skirmishes with US troops stationed in Nogales, Arizona.
In other words, the international prestige of US literature in the late s was no greater than that of Mexican literature, at least in the context of the Americas.
To make clear that the borderlands violence I have mentioned goes well beyond a single cross border raid by Villa, let me provide some additional historical data. Francia en el horizonte.

Villa, antagonized by the US recognition of the Carranza government, had made threatening statements regarding US presence in Mexican territory. The quality of this edition was deplorable; according to Robe: Azuela, of course, was not executed or mutilated, nor did he see any violence of this kind first hand. With few exceptions, Spanish speaking Henry Wadsworth Longfellow being another one, there was very little crossborder circulation of literary texts, much less translation thereof, prior to the s.
It came out in 23 daily installments, six days a week, with the final chapter published on November Although his own revolutionary ties had been with Villistas, Azuela reached agreement with the publishers of a Carranza financed local newspaper, El Paso del Norteto publish his still incomplete novel in installments beginning October 27, only eight days after the aggressions inspired by the Plan de San Diego ceased.

The borderlands war, for the most part, never became truly national in scope on either side of the border. This occurred even in the Spanish language Mexican American press — this is indeed the language used to refer to him in El Paso del Norte.
However, such an interpretation of his stay there ignores, as much historiography on the Mexican Revolution does, the ways in which revolutionary warfare extended into the US borderlands. If it might be expected that Whitman, Hawthorne, Thoreau and their lot sought out connections in Europe before looking to their South American neighbors, but it may be less intuitively apparent just how little interest Altamirano and his collaborators showed in US literature, with Edgar Allan Poe being just about the only US writer they cared much about at all.
