The Southeast in Two Winds A Storm and a Prophecy

Subcomandante Marcos

This seminal essay by Subcomandante Marcos was written in August of 1992, a year and a half before the uprising. It outlines all the reasons for the uprising and provides substantial background material on the conditions in Chiapas that prompted the revolt. It is the first written sample produced by the literary phenomenon Marcos, and, although a little heavy-handed, offers some glimpses of his brilliance. It was not released publicly until January 27, 1994.
