Reviews

“Of all the many excellent, dramatic translations carried out by Robert G. Trimble, this is the best.”
-Prof. Thomas R. Franz,
Ohio University


“Once again Trimble treats English-speaking readers of Spanish drama to an exceptional translation of the work of a nineteenth-century playwright who deserves more recognition than he has heretofore received.”
-Prof. Mark Harping,
University of Puget Sound

“The highest praise I can give to Trimble’s translation is that I found myself simply absorbed in the work as I read it…His English translation makes the reader identify with the main characters and their problems and conflicts.”
-Prof. Stephen Miller
Texas A&M
