The book shows now past artistic texts -- other plays, stories, newspaper articles, songs, or paintings -- can be manipulated and translated to create a new theatrical script, and that this new script can expose an innovative space for interpreting the nation.

The introduction reviews theories of intertextuality, nation, and nationalism and applies them to Latin America. Each chapter studies two to three plays and shows how the intertexts open up hidden connections and border spaces within texts and between texts that the new writer and reader fill with significance, replacing the meaning of the pretext with their own.

This new textual voice permits texts to be restaged, reconfigured, and imagined in a way that is purely Latin American.
