Resumen:
Both Agustin de Foxa and Victor Ruiz Iriarte premiered their first plays very near the end of the Spanish Civil War in 1939. The two playwrights appear to belong to the same imaginative and poetical vein, but in fact Foxa yearns for an impossible return to an idealized past, in a pessimistic lamentation against Modernitythat is, precisely, his exotic drama Cui-Ping-Sing. The poetical theatre Ruiz Iriarte endorses in Un dia en la Gloria, and thinks apt to Modern times, is based in a radical optimismthe idea that fantasy can always transform and improve a disappointing reality.
