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


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Latin American Women Dramatists: Theater, Texts, and Theories discusses 15 works of Latin-American playwrights. Contributors 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. They also illustrate through the writers' experiences that gender difference entails both loss and profit. A theme common to all the playwrights is that their plays—whether they subscribe to traditional male forms of writing or are involved in dismantling masculine structures—use the theater to bring about change.
