En la ardiente oscuridad by Antonio Buero Vallejo. Carlos Gorostiza Foreword by. In the author’s own words his play “aims to set down within a realistic framework, so necessary to the theatre, a nucleus of problems and passions involving man in general, and not blind people in particular.
Accordingly, the play must In the author’s own words his play “aims to set down within a realistic framework, so necessary to the theatre, a nucleus of problems and passions involving man in general, and not blind people in particular.
Accordingly, the play must be understood as a sketch of the tragedy of man and his destiny, a problem which again is acquiring legitimacy and urgency, outstepping from the serious Spanish theatre studies into the surrounding reality. Two aspects are set down as intentionally dominant within the plan of Buero Vallejo’s work.
One is the social relationship, a mixture of free and forced situations, which arestablished between a strong individuality whose reasoning and frustration conflict with the reasoning and passion of the community. The other involves the tension of the visionary, the yearning for “light” and the belief in it which occasionally distinguishes the people of genuine religious feelings facing the material interests of the majority.

This play by Spanish author Antonio Buero Vallejo was assigned in the Spanish conversation class I audited last semester and, to vlalejo to stay in my Professors good graces despite being an auditing graduate studentI actually kept up with the readings.
It wasn’t osckridad easy read for byero. My language ability is decent, but there is enough Spanish slang and enough unfamiliar vocabulary to send me flipping back to the back pages to study the notes every few lines.

Synopsis: La ardiente oscuridad
Importantly, Vallejo was imprisoned in Spain under the rule of dictator Francisco Franco. This play was produced shortly after his release and is an interesting historical example for what it represents about this period in Spanish history and what Vallejo avllejo able to sneak by the censors as he continued the artistic subversion that had already landed him in jail once.
The plot of the play centers on a school for the blind other geographic information is pointedly absent. The lscuridad at the center, older youths, are a pleasant bunch: Carlos, Elisa, Juana, and a half dozen others. All are friendly and the atmosphere of the center is upbeat until the arrival arxiente Ignacio, the play’s dark protagonist.
Ignacio, unlike the other students, is not content to accept his blindness and he mocks the other students for their happy complacency. His presence upsets the balance of the Centro and rocks those in it so profoundly that the fact that these characters are slipping inevitably towards some gross or tragic resolution becomes obvious early on.
It’s a great play. Tense, engaging, uncomfortable at times, and with great dramatic timing and flow. Responde a la Amistad con la maldad. Dec 31, Taiyesha-Duchess of Indiana rated it it was amazing Shelves: I thoroughly enjoyed this book. We had to read this piece ardienge literature in pscuridad advanced Spanish class. It was daunting to say the least. However, despite my limitation with Spanish being a second language in progress, the meaning behind the story was not lost.
This piece of drama is really amazing.
It poses questions such as: What is the difference between being alive and actually living? Does one need vision to have true sight? Is Love sometimes a dark place, despite the rose tinted view point it i I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Is Love sometimes a dark place, despite the rose tinted view point it is placed in? I recommend this piece of literature to spanish speakers and people learning, such as I!
I’ve read a translated version and it, in my honest opinion, failed to maintain the tone of the literature. Nevertheless, this short dramatic work will not fail to leave you unmoved.
Ahora bien, des de mi punto de vista no es una obra maestra del autor a pesar de que ha sido varias veces idolatrada. El resto de la obra, aun que el tema es acertado, se me presenta flojo, cursi e incluso forzado.
And although Ignacio had a rather depressing life and some would call him a pessimist, his points proved him only to be realistic. The symbolism is also amazing, as long as you know what you’re looking for ;] es una bella obra. This book is basically about the meaning of life. What do we live for? Why are ardisnte here?
What makes us happy? When is life not worth living anymore? By using the blindness metaphore Buero Vallejo asks himself what makes us human, what ardidnte is, who we are, but doesn’t answer these questions so easily.
We readers are abandoned with such questions, not an easy task indeed. Nov 29, Natalia Requejo rated it it was amazing. Jun 13, Neal vallsjo it liked it Recommends it for: It was sort of boring.

During the civil war, he served as a medical aid in the Republican army. After the war he was imprisoned for six years. After being released he wrote Story of a Stairway in This work presented a graphic picture of Spain after the Civil War and won the Lope de Vega Prize, establishing Vallejo as one of the foremost authors in Spain.
While other authors left Spain to escape Franco’s censorship, Vallejo stayed in Spain and used symbolism to criticize the government. Inhe was elected to the Royal Spanish Academy. A common theme in his work is Spain’s problems during and after Franco. In the tragedies there is always a sense of hope for the future.
His works make frequent use of the symbolism of the senses—for example, using the “fiery darkness,” in which the protagonist cannot see, as a symbol of Spain’s dark situation.
