Other Literary Forms

(Critical Edition of Dramatic Literature)

In addition to his dramatic work, José Echegaray y Eizaguirre also wrote critical articles and essays on the nature of drama, some of which were collected in 1894 in his book Algunas reflexiones generales sobre la crítica y el arte literario. In 1912, he published a small collection of short stories, Cuentos, and wrote Recuerdos, an autobiography in three volumes, which was published posthumously in 1917. His true claim to literary importance, however, resides in the seventy-four dramas, satiric comedies, and one-act plays that he produced between 1874 and 1905.
