Carlos Arniches

Carlos Arniches

Carlos Arniches (1866–1943) was a Spanish playwright. His work, drawing on the traditions of the género chico, the zarzuela and the grotesque, came to dominate the Spanish comic theatre in the early twentieth century.

Arniches was complimented in a 1935 interview by Federico García Lorca, often a scathing critic of Spanish theatre in the 1920s and 1930s, as 'more of a poet than almost any of those who are writing theatre in verse at the moment'.
