Poniatowska, Elena. El tren pasa primero. Mexico City: Alfaguara, ISBN In her latest novel, El tren pasa primero , Elena Poniatowska fictionalizes the life of the historical figure Demetrio Vallejo , union leader of the Railway Union Workers Movement Movimiento Sindical Ferrocarrilero in Mexico. He was later imprisoned for 11 years and repeatedly went on hunger strikes to protest his imprisonment and the repression the Mexican government was exercising on other union members.

The first part of El tren pasa primero, representing close to half of the novel, recounts the activities of Trinidad as a union leader. Closer to chronicle than novel, this part tells of the leader's fight to improve conditions for his fellow railway workers through various strikes that he organizes.

Ultimately, Trinidad is arrested by secret agents and taken to the "Black Palace" of Lecumberri along with sixty-four other railway workers. In prison, the protagonist realizes that his closest allies in the railway movement did not challenge his imprisonment and they eventually stop visiting him. Author: Traci Roberts-Camps. Date: Nov.

Este era un hombre que nacio en un pueblito del sur de Mexico. Nunca hubiera salido de el, pero un dia el tren paso frente a sus ojos y en el ruido de esa maquina escucho el relato de su vida; supo el porque de la indomable ansia de saber que lo empujaba siempre mas alla de sus limites. Y en efecto, a Trinidad Pineda Chinas, el personaje central de esta novela, el tren lo llevo a todo: a lugares que nunca imagino, a incontables saberes, oficios, personas, posibilidades, y sobre todo al instante en que hablo a sus companeros ferrocarrileros con tal ardor y conviccion que los convirtio en vanguardia de la lucha de los trabajadores. Y pararon de cabeza al pais y al regimen. El tren es la vida, que duda cabe. Pero si bien ser ferrocarrilero es asunto de hombres, ninguno de ellos es nada sin las mujeres. Madres, esposas, maestras, amantes, rieleras, transitan por estas paginas con poderosa presencia, con la fuerza inabarcable que late dentro de cada una.
