Blurb: Spain shares with England the honor of having created, at an early date, a genuinely national form of drama. While Shakespeare was writing for the Elizabethans, Lope de Vega, the astonishing and fertile genius of the Spanish theater, was creating plays drawn from the special color and quality of Spanish life.In the twentieth century, Frederico Garcia Lorca turned away from the 19th century realism to restore poetic tragedy to the dramatic form- thus continuing the tradition of imagination and particular national style which has made Spanish drama unique among theaters of the world.
