Overview

Editor Versenyi provides an introduction to a largely neglected area of literature (except by a specialized audience) until the 1980s, delineating the multiple currents that have shaped Latin American dramatic literature. Like others in the Dictionary of Literary Biography series, this volume offers thorough information about prominent literary figures. Thirty-one dramatists are profiled, among them Isidora Aguirre, Hugo Arguelles, Roberto Arlt, Carlos Jose Reyes, Rodolofo Usigli, and Egon Wolff, to name a few. Each entry begins with a b&w portrait and includes a thorough bibliography, biographical information, synopses and critical interpretation of works, and references.
