About the author (1983)

Marques is the most important of the Puerto Rican dramatists, who in the 1950's and 1960s, created a theater that revealed a surge in Puerto Rican pride and ethnic identity. His early work is heavily naturalistic, but in later plays he made extensive use of unorthodox time sequences and imaginative lighting to create a symbolic portrait of what he considered his island's problems. In his essays, Marques examined the identity of the Puerto Rican as he saw it, against the backdrop of a dreaded cultural and linguistic assimilation with the United States.
