Ramón de la Cruz (1731–1794)

Cruz, Ramon de la. A Spanish dramatic poet (1731–94). He rescued the native Spanish drama from an inundation of French influence. A marvelously prolific writer, he produced some 300 pieces in all departments of dramatic composition. But of them all only some interludes can now command attention; these are alive in every line, reflecting with absolute truth the life of the lowest orders.
