La accion de esta obra se situa en los anos treinta. Se perfila la segunda Guerra Mundial y en Mexico el general Cesar Rubio, uno de los caudillos idealistas de la Revolucion al que se creia muerto durante una emboscada, es descubierto vivo en un oscuro pueblo del norte del pais. El hecho causa revuelo: para muchos, Rubio puede ser la bolsa de oxigeno que el pais necesita para no desviar su ruta; para otros representara un obstaculo. Rodolfo Usigli resuelve con mano maestra este conflicto.

About the author (1983)

Rodolfo Usigli (1905-79) is considered by many to be Mexico's foremost twentieth-century dramatist. The son of recently arrived European ?migr?s, he lived through the Mexican Revolution and shared the populist and reformist ideals that inspired artists and intellectuals of the postrevolutionary period. Usigli, who was also a poet, novelist, and essayist of distinction, created in his plays a probing and far-reaching interpretive vision of Mexican history, institutions, and cultural values. His widely anthologized El gesticulador (The Impostor) and his Corona de sombra (Crown of Shadows) are regarded as classics in both Mexican and Latin American drama. Recognized with the National Prize for Literature in 1972, he was pronounced by Octavio Paz ?the best [Mexican] playwright in this century.?
