Critical and conceptual, this study examines and advances the debate on postmodernist theater by presenting the works of Francisco Nieva as bona-fide examples of this avant-garde school. It also redefines the existing historical boundaries of literary postmodernism by asserting Spain's role in shaping that history through the 1940s neo-avant-garde movement known as "Postismo," which thrived even in the face of suppression from Franco's government. Through examples and analysis, the text argues that Postismo was the earliest systematic manifestation in the Iberian Peninsula of literary postmodernism as recognized today and that Nieva is not only Postismo's chief proponent but also its only legitimate playwright.

Komla Aggor is a professor of Spanish at John Carroll University in Cleveland, Ohio.
“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(John London)
