“Even within the monographs written in Spanish, Aggor’s study makes a genuinely innovative contribution to the field. This is a serious academic analysis with much original interpretation of an important playwright who is still relatively unknown outside his native country. It is clearly written and intellectually coherent, and even when complex aesthetic ideas are involved, the language is not abstruse.” –Dr. John London, Reader in Drama and Theatre Arts, Goldsmiths College, University of London
