This study demonstrates how the original, exclusive portrayals of the "ideal" nation and its "ideal" citizens are carried into the Post-Revolutionary era, whereby authors such as Rosario Castellanos, Carlos Fuentes, Octavio Paz, Samuel Ramos, Rodolfo Usigli, and Xavier Villaurrutia view their society as a system that has segregated rather than unified individuals into one nation.
