Review Text

Casona, crítico siempre de los males de la sociedad civilizada -del mundo urbano- utiliza el tema del suicidio como telón de fondo del asunto central: la felicidad e infelicidad en dos hermanos, en dos seres a quien el destino se muestra con doble faz, como Jano. La justicia o injusticia nada tiene que ver con el corazón ni con los sentimientos que presiden las relaciones entre los humanos. En la obra todo sirve a una idea central: la exaltación de la vida, el rechazo del suicidio. No hay nada que lo justifique porque fuera está la naturaleza, encarnada en la primavera, con toda su potencia, con toda su savia que reanima los deseos de gozar.show more
