  1. 1. The Censors by Luisa Valenzuela

    "The Censors" is a satirical short story that delves into the life of a man who takes a job as a censor at a government agency in an attempt to intercept and approve his own letter, which he had previously sent abroad. As he becomes increasingly absorbed in his role, he starts to censor letters with zeal, losing sight of his original purpose. The story serves as a cautionary tale about the corrupting influence of power and the ease with which one can become complicit in oppressive systems, ultimately leading to a grim and ironic conclusion where the protagonist falls victim to the very system he sought to manipulate.

  2. 2. The Impenetrable Madam X by Griselda Gambaro

    "The Impenetrable Madam X" is a provocative play that delves into the complexities of human relationships and societal expectations. Set against a backdrop of surrealism and absurdity, the narrative follows the titular character, a woman shrouded in mystery and power, who interacts with various other characters in a series of disjointed scenes. Through sharp dialogue and symbolic interactions, the play explores themes of identity, power dynamics, and the struggle for understanding within the confines of a world that oscillates between the real and the fantastical. The work challenges audiences to question the nature of reality and the masks people wear in their daily lives.
