    Abstract:
    This article analyses the impact of the Mexican Revolution on national literature, specifically on Ignacio Solares’s novel Columbus, as well as the importance of historic discourse as a literary objective. Solares’s work recounts the historic event from the perspective of one of its characters, who is being interviewed after the event by a journalist whose goal is the recovery first- hand of the revolutionary discourse. However, the alcoholism of the protagonist makes the dialogue between both characters difficult and unreliable. Solares manages to question what until now has been considered the solemn truth about the Revolution, discussing History by trying to reconstruct it in the words of an alcoholic man and emphasizing the importance of the reader/listener as a receptor of these stories, without whom there would be no need for them to be told.
