Latin American Women Dramatists: Theater, Texts, and Theories

by

Latin American Women Dramatists: Theater, Texts, and Theories Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"The book highlights the many possibilities of the innovative work of these dramatists, and this will, it is to be hoped, help the editors to achieve one of their other key goals: productions of the plays in English." --Times Literary Supplement

"This thoughtfully crafted book with its insightful and informative studies elucidates an overlooked, essential component of the Latin American literary canon." --Choice

Contributors discuss 15 works of Latin-American playwrights, delineate the artistic lives of women dramatists of the last half of the twentieth century--from countries as diverse as Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Mexico, Puerto Rico, and Venezuela--and highlight the problems inherent in writing under politically repressive governments.
