90 Monologues from Classical Theater
Edited by Barbara Fuchs, Jennifer Monti, and Laura Muñoz
Spanish classical theater offers one of the most popular and vibrant dramatic repertoires ever produced in the West, and deserves to be far better known in the English-speaking world. This dual-language anthology is intended to provide you with wonderful audition monologues, to be sure, but also to spark your interest in the plays included here and the broader canon that they represent. We offer the original Spanish as well as a range of translations in verse and prose, to give a sense of the tremendous variety available. Our volume is part of the Diversifying the Classics project at UCLA, which seeks to foster awareness and appreciation of Hispanic classical theater and to give theater professionals the materials and tools to explore its rich tradition. We hope that you will enjoy the great variety of characters and situations represented here, and that you will read further.
