Between 1892 and 1936 Spanish society witnessed many momentous transformations, including the reassertion of a Catalan identity and the emergence of Barcelona as a major industrial and cultural centre. At the same time, theatre in Spain underwent significant changes as teatro poetico and the avant-garde challenged both the naturalistic and commercial theatres.
Theatre in Madrid and Barcelona, 1892-1936 is an account of an exciting period in Spanish cultural history and provides a detailed analysis of the artistic, political and linguistic contexts of Spanish and Catalan theatre before the Spanish Civil War.
