Valle-Inclan decia en una carta que estaba escribiendo una novela americana de caudillaje y avaricia gachupinesca...en una prosa expresiva y poco academica. Esa obra fue Tirano Banderas donde con una prosa brillante muestra las pequeneces de los dictadores de nuestra America. El pintoresco pero cruel Santos Banderas es un personaje infortunadamente muy familiar, pero leer sobre el, en esa satira tragica, es una experiencia que sirve no solo para conocimiento sino tambien para guía. El gran autor espanol creo una de sus mas grandes novelas en este brillante retrato del dictadorzuelo criollo.

In this great tale, the author creates a fictional Latin American country, which really sums up the basic representative traits of these lands: a dictator, the ruling elite, the revolutionaries, the foreign diplomats, etc. It's all color, fiesta, cruelty, corruption, cowardice, and exploitation.

    " I had to read this book at the University and I hated it. It was just too, too grotesque for me. "

    " The spanish used was really complicated, even for a native speaker. The author likes to combine expression from several regions, creating a unique language "

    " Not really sure what to think about this book. The description on the jacket and quote from Diego Rivera about the book did not live up to what I actually read in the book. "

    " Del Valle-Inclan lost his arm in a fight with a critic -- much to be admired in that. "
