The double of Manuel Zeno Gandía -as physician and flesh presser- joins the writer's to rework the drama in l. a. Charca right into a deep mirrored image upon the evils that also these days damage the Latin American societies commonly, and Puerto Rico particularly. in the Crónicas de un mundo enfermo sequence, los angeles charca (1894) is the easiest from a literary perspective. because the reader delves into the plot the depiction of the labourers' existence, tersely uncovered and with no panphletary adjectivations, stands proud as a stern denunciation. The discusions among the cult and freethinking Juan del Salto and his acquaintances -doctor Pintado and the spiritual P. Esteban- distinction with the result and turn into a noisy name of realization forged on the cultivated type that, having wasted a long time within the dialogue of social development theories, proved themselves incapable of establishing a criminal and political framework to humanize the lives of the dispossesed and foster between them the practices to urge their gowth out of poverty. Zeno Gandía, as Balzac and Pérez Galdós, initiates in los angeles Charca a story universe with archetypical characters that in a while will reappear in successive works, occasionally less than diversified names. Human society, degraded through its passions and hampered by way of colonial mentalities, first below Spain and afterward lower than the U.S. impression, constitutes the axis of Zeno Gandías's novels, in a story tone either naturalistic and cultivated.
