Alfonso Sastre has been an original playwright also because he did not confined himself to national themes, but often set his plays beyond the Spanish border, in an international context. Sastre’s choice was motivated both by the necessity to circumvent Spanish censorship and by his personal interest (also as a translator) in foreign drama. One of his most significant «international» plays was La sangre y la ceniza (1965), centered on Miguel Servet de Villanueva, an Aragonese physician and humanist who, because of his ideas, was forced to live as an exile throughout Europe and was eventually burned at the stake in Calvinist Geneva in 1553.

Abstract

Alfonso Sastre has been an original playwright also because he did not confined himself to national themes, but often set his plays beyond the Spanish border, in an international context. Sastre’s choice was motivated both by the necessity to circumvent Spanish censorship and by his personal interest (also as a translator) in foreign drama. One of his most significant «international» plays was La sangre y la ceniza (1965), centered on Miguel Servet de Villanueva, an Aragonese physician and humanist who, because of his ideas, was forced to live as an exile throughout Europe and was eventually burned at the stake in Calvinist Geneva in 1553.
