In the same way that their contemporaries of the celebrated Generation of 27 (which included Federico García Lorca) attempted a revolution of the arts through poetry inspired by European modernism, the ‘Other’ Generation of 27 attempted to renovate Spanish humour, first in prose, and then in the theatre and cinema. This book demonstrates how these humorists drew on the humour of Chaplin, Keaton, Lubitsch and the Marx Brothers for their stage comedy, and how they stretched the limits of the stage at the time by incorporating cinematic techniques, such as flashback, voice-overs and montage, in their search for new dramatic forms.
In the author’s words: “After detailing their viewing habits and film-making experiences in the USA and Spain, I devise and apply a method for the analysis of the influence of screen on stage that draws on the disciplines of film and theatre studies. I argue that these experiments, had they not been curtailed by the culture of Francoism, might have developed into a significant contribution to European theatre.”
