Book DescriptionDaring, innovative, controversial, often satirical, a dramatist ahead of his time, Ramon del Valle-Inclan (1866-1936) was one of Spain's 'Generation of 1898', and an influence on such later movements as the Theatre of Cruelty and the Theatre of the Absurd. Lima's study first examines Valle-Inclan's day-to-day involvement with the theatre as actor, director-dramaturg and playwright.
