Antonio Buero Vallejo: In the Burning Darkness

En la ardiente oscuridad

Edited and Translated by Philip G. Johnston

Liverpool University Press

Aris and Phillips Hispanic Classics

Arguably Spain's leading playwright of the twentieth century, Antonio Buero-Vallejo published thirty original plays. In the Burning Darkness was the first play he wrote. The seminal, and lasting, significance of this play was confirmed when an extract from it was read over Buero-Vallejo's grave on the day of his burial.
