Read full description of the books:
Este teatro, realista y simbolico a la vez, situa en primer termino los problemas del individuo y encierra al mismo tiempo una significacion social. Tiene siempre en cuenta ""la importancia infinita del caso singular"", segun la formulacion de los investigadores de El Tragaluz. Sus personajes son seres humanos concretos, complejos, nunca de una pieza ni meros sustentadores de una idea. Puede considerarse, en tal sentido, este como un teatro psicologico. Por otra parte, el personaje bueriano tiene que afrontar y resolver, como individuo, una problematica moral que es de naturaleza social(De la Introduccion de Jose Luis Garcia Barrientos)

Read information about the authorAntonio Buero Vallejo was a Spanish playwright considered the most important Spanish dramatist of the Spanish Civil War. During his career he won three National Theatre Prizes (in 1957, 1958 & 1959), a National Theatre Prize for all his career in 1980, the National Literature Prize in 1996, and the Miguel de Cervantes Prize, Spain's highest literary honour, in 1986. From 1971 until his death he was a member of the Real Academia Española.
From 1934 to 1936 Vallejo studied art and painting at San Fernando Escuela de Arte, in Madrid. During the civil war, he served as a medical aid in the Republican army. After the war he was imprisoned for six years. After being released he wrote Story of a Stairway in 1949. This work presented a graphic picture of Spain after the Civil War and won the Lope de Vega Prize, establishing Vallejo as one of the foremost authors in Spain. While other authors left Spain to escape Franco's censorship, Vallejo stayed in Spain and used symbolism to criticize the government. In 1971, he was elected to the Royal Spanish Academy. In 1994 he was awarded the Gold Medal of Merit in Fine Arts and the Gold Medal of the Society of Authors of Spain.
A common theme in his work is Spain's problems during and after Franco. In the tragedies there is always a sense of hope for the future. His works make frequent use of the symbolism of the senses—for example, using the "fiery darkness," in which the protagonist cannot see, as a symbol of Spain's dark situation.
