B. Traven's The Treasure of the Sierra Madre: A Re-evaluation

Auther : Kenneth W. Payne

This paper concerns B.Traven’s Novel, The Treasure of the Slerra madre (1927 the work occupies an importan place in the development of Traven’s fiction for two main reasons-a it is the last of his novels to deal directly with the outcasts of western industrialized civilization in the post world war one years, and b)it marks the beginning of Traven’s interest in cultural primitivism, particularly in the communalistic society of the Chiapas Indians of South Mexico. The discussion concentrates on the way in which traven contrasts with the traditional values of the Indian commune. The paper attempts to identify those aspects of Indian life and thought which Traven saw as antidotes to the ills of modern civilized society.
