I found I disliked the book after my spanish teacher analized it to death. THe simbolisms were widly out of proportion and I had to be careful that what I was reading was really true. For example, if I read: "He entered through the door and the sun shone in his eyes", it doesn't mean that AT ALL. It COULD mean that he died and that the sun was just metaphorically there, but then, not even my teacher comprehended it.

This is probably one of the best plays in Latin American literature, I loved every line of it, even more after reading for a second time in a Literature course at the University. A year later I had a chance to see the play with one of my favorite actresses (Johanna Rosaly) as one the leading ladies, just breathtaking.
