Overview

In 1967 a dozen hopeful young Mexican dramatists-most of them studying with Emilio Carballido-began staging plays, primarily in small, out-of-the-way theaters, and publishing them, mostly in university magazines with limited distribution. Until now, more than twenty years later, there has been no comprehensive study devoted either to this original group of writers or to those who followed in the same generation, and no central source of information about them or their production. Although they continue to produce more plays every year, they represent a lost generation.

In 1967 a group of young Mexican dramatists--most of them studying with Emilio Carballido--began staging plays, primarily in small, out-of-the-way theaters, and publishing them, mostly in university magazines with limited distribution. Burgess (Spanish, Gettysburg College) examines this generation of social dramatists in the context of contemporary Mexican society and literature. Annotation c.
