Zorro Comes to Life in Allende's Latest
Regina befriends Ana, a young convert who is assigned to care for her. Regina has a complicated birth, spending fifty hours in labor, and requiring Padre Mendoza to deliver the baby, whom Regina names Diego.
The infant boy is baptized on the spot. Diego and Bernardo, Ana's son, become close friends. Since Ana breastfed Diego while his mother was convalescing from her pregnancy, as well as Bernardo, the boys became "milk brothers.
At an early age, Diego and Bernardo share an unusual childhood. They capture a live bear using the sleeping potion from White Owl, once used to amputate the limb of a wounded priest, with the assistance of a frightened, bullied, obese boy named Garcia.
Together, Diego and Bernardo undergo Indian training, while Alejandro teaches fencing to Diego, who passes it on to Bernardo. When the de la Vega hacienda is attacked by pirates, the boys have their own traumatizing experiences: Diego and his mother attempt to defend the house, but are defeated, and Bernardo, hidden in the servants' room, is forced to watch his mother be brutally raped and murdered by the pirates.
This causes Bernardo to be mute, as a sign of mourning. Bernardo is sent to the Indian tribe of Regina to recover, and soon strikes a friendship with Light-in-the-Night, which blossoms into a romance, and Diego is forced to remain at home to recover after suffering a few broken ribs during the attack. Diego and Bernardo then undergo a test to prove their maturity and to find their spirit guide, a totemic animal which would guide the boys' future.
Bernardo's spirit guide is a horse, in the form of Tornado, a motherless colt which Bernardo encounters and cares for. Diego's is a fox zorro in his native Spanish who saves his life. After the events in the forest, Alejandro, oblivious to the Indian training Diego has been receiving, receives a letter from Tomas de Romeu, an old friend of Alejandro and currently residing in France — occupied Spain.
He invites Alejandro to let Diego go to Barcelona, to receive a more formal schooling, and to learn fencing under the famed maestro Manuel Escalante. Alejandro reluctantly allows Diego to go, and Diego takes Bernardo with him.
They leave after their fifteenth birthday, where Regina surprisingly organizes an extravagant party, given her own aversion to parties, and Bernardo has an intimate moment with Light-in-the-Night. Diego spies a golden medallion which the captain wears around his neck but is reluctant to acknowledge to Diego. De Romeu is a French sympathizer who has two young daughters, the beautiful Juliana and the tomboyish Isabel. Diego is immediately struck by Juliana and decides to pursue her romantically.
He also begins to study fencing with Maestro Manuel Escalante. Moncada utilizes trickery to gain Juliana's favor which Diego and Bernardo investigate. The rivalry escalates upon Moncada's abuse of Bernardo which Diego takes exception and issues a challenge to a duel. Moncada and Diego arrange to have the duel with pistols and Moncada is allowed to take the first shot which hits Diego in the arm. Diego then fires into the ground with his shot, which frightens Moncada so much that he vomits on himself.
Diego is satisfied with the result having humiliated Moncada. Bernardo and Diego befriend a group of gypsies in Barcelona and Diego begins an affair with a gypsy woman named Amalia. Both boys also perform in a circus act with the gypsies where Diego begins to assemble a costume to disguise himself from the high society people in attendance.
After one of Diego's fencing lessons with Escalante, he learns the secret of La Justicia, a secret organization devoted to justice. Members of La Justicia are identified by the gold medallions which they wear around their necks. Diego recognizes Escalante's medallion as being the same as that of de Leon's.
Escalante invites Diego to join La Justicia and they begin to train for his initiation test where Diego is tested physically in his fighting against members of La Justicia. Diego passes the test and joins La Justicia and takes the name Zorro meaning 'fox'. Diego learns that Amalia has been arrested and is being held prisoner. Diego, dressed as Zorro, sneaks into the palace to convince Le Chavalier Duchamp, Napoleon's emissary to Spain, to release the hostages which he does under threat of his daughter's life.
Part Three Spain, — [ edit ] Moncada and Diego continue their pursuit of Juliana with neither gaining ground. One night, Juliana and Isabel are attacked on the street when Moncada appears and defends them so that they can escape. Everyone is relieved and grateful except for Isabel who recognizes the attackers as being employed by Moncada.
Diego confirms this when he visits the gypsies. Sometime later, Diego warns the gypsies that they are in danger of arrest and they flee the city. The political landscape changes as Napoleon is exiled and Duchamp leaves Spain. Arrests are made including Maestro Escalante, who is held in a local barracks. Diego convinces La Justicia to stage a rescue. Zorro and the other members of La Justicia enter the barracks and rescue Escalante, then their members disband.
Don de Romeu is also arrested as a French sympathizer and is held in the more secure La Ciudadela. Juliana goes to Moncada and asks him to use his influence to release her father. He agrees on the condition that she marry him and she agrees. Several days later, Moncada returns and informs Juliana that he was unable to secure a release. Isabel and Diego approach Eulalia and ask her to intervene.
They both pursue a woman who falls in love with their alter-ego before finding out who they really are.
Marguerite keeps thinking of the Scarlet Pimpernel, wishing she could be with him rather than her husband, and Lolita dreams she could be with Zorro rather than marry Diego. Both include the archetype of a secret identity.
Zorro has fox-like wits while the Pimpernel is very cunning. They both have a humorous charm. Zorro uses the Z to mark out where he has been and on his enemies and similarly the Pimpernel uses the scarlet pimpernel, a tiny flower coming from England as his signature.
Simply from the above claims, this would mean that McCulley had read The Scarlet Pimpernel and was inspired to write his own American version, simply changing the French reality of Pimpernel to suit the American one of Zorro. Orczy, wrote on real life events and on real people such as Chauvelinix whereas no events or people are real in McCulley. If one does not know of American history they would believe that similar events may have taken place because it is well written since he based the events on a period where California was between becoming a US state, and being part of Spain and Mexico, something that was true.
Douglas Fairbanks read The Curse of Capistrano and decided to turn it into a motion picture. The Mark of Zorro was such a success that a reprint of the original story was made into a novel in with the same title as the film. McCulley had given away the identity of Zorro in his original story because he had no intention of continuing Zorro. Seeing the success of his character on film, he decided that although Zorro was revealed, he could write further adventures of the character.
He SARRIS 5 thus wrote another 65 short stories and serial segments between the years and for various magazines which were later collected and printed in book versions.
In doing so, the idea of Zorro as a legend rather than reality is even greater. In some stories, only certain people know that Diego is Zorro, it would either be his father, Alejando, Frey Felipe or his servant, Bernardo.
McCulley was also inconsistent with when Diego became Zorro and the time period he took on his dual identity. The original story put Zorro in the s whereas later stories put him to become the legendary character as early as All these would suggest that McCulley kept writing stories of Zorro because it had become a motion picture success and because he realised that the readers wanted more stories on the legend of Zorro.
The original novel seems more real than the rest of the Zorro stories, further signifying the myth behind Zorro.
These inconsistencies make it impossible to determine a correct history of Zorro as a character and even to determine whether there was in fact such a person alive at any period of time between the years and To add to the above point, one has to look at the people that could be seen as resembling the figure of Zorro and who lived around the time McCulley uses in his setting.
Joaquin Murrieta lived between the years of and He then went on a killing rampage and his deeds became so well known that he is considered an equal legend amongst Jesse James and Billy the Kid. He was eventually killed and mutilated by Harry Lovexiv. There is no trace back to any real person that existed before Murrieta or even to Murrieta himself. Murrieta killed for revenge while Zorro did not want to harm anyone but rather overthrow a corrupt government and the rich who controlled land and people.
Murrieta did not seem to care for the money he stole since his family was involved with the Gold Rush but there is no evidence that he gave money to the poor like Zorro did. Zorro was only a bandit to the wealthy and the government since he stole money and gave them to the poor but not to the people who saw him as a saviour, as a hero who would help to bring them their freedom. Accounts suggest that Murrieta was seen as a bandit to some and a hero to others.
Another reason why he could be seen as Zorro or the inspiration for his creation was that Murrieta was also given the name El Coyote in a Spanish version of his story where he fought for justice against the English, Zorro, however, helps against the injustices of the Spanish governmentxvi. In fact he has been used as part of the Zorro legend in the film The Mask of Zorro.
Whatever the case, the first super hero and Murrieta are two great examples of American myth creation as part of a range of real and legendary characters including Jesse James and Billy the Kid.
She also tries to show how McCulley came up with the story of Diego coming from Spain where he was taught everything he knew about fighting, how he was taught by his father Alejandro that being righteous and helping others in need is more important than anything in life. This is done from the use of real events and people, such as the pirate Jean Lafitte. This makes the story more realistic than McCulley.
The pirate in her story wears black clothes from top to bottom and Allende suggests he inspired Diego to make his Zorro costume black. By the end, a complete life cycle of Zorro has been revealed, from his prime of life until his old age. She simply adds her version to what she sees Zorro as rather than provide real information to show that there is a reality behind Zorro.
There are references to the possibilities of a real-life Zorro having existed first as a bandit, then a hero and comparisons between all the Zorros of the past. If there was a reality behind Zorro then Curtis would have written it.

The reader realises that Zorro did not exist but McCulley created a fictional character from a combination of stories and real bandits, a super hero that has become a legend over the years and has been appealing to the public for over 90 years. The two most recent films of Zorro, Mask of Zorro in and Legend of Zorro in are part of the second category. The former is based on the original story but with some character changes and additions of real life people of midth century.
It is set in and the audience see how the Murrietas became bandits. Joaquin is killed and beheaded by Captain Love and Alejandro wanting revenge takes up the role of Zorro with the help of Don Diego. What is interesting in this film is the achievement of adapting the legend of Joaquin Murrieta with the legend of Zorro.
The fact that here fiction meets reality makes the legend of Zorro even more interesting. It shows how Zorro has become a legend in almost one century. SARRIS 9 Zorro changed over time from a character McCulley created in a pulp magazine and read by adults to a character that is now very famous amongst the younger generations. This dramatic change occurred in the late s and the s with Disney and with the first comic books appearing with Zorro. Disney added a name to the horse that McCulley did not have which was used later in other films.
The stories and films made him a legend and only to this extent can he be seen as real, for his righteous deeds. He certainly shows that Americans in the 19th century felt oppressed from all directions, especially from governments and the wealthy and that there may have been people who tried to help the people achieve freedom and righteousness.Christopher Syn the Scarecrow of Romney Marsh one of the world's first masked crime-fighters.
