God Has Died or the Will of power (Dios ha muerto o La Voluntad del Poder)
translated by Prof. Charles Philip Thomas
Dios ha muerto o La Voluntad del Poder (God has died or The Will of Power) intense images of confusion and anxiety about the end of the millennium run through the play in which there are ten characters who are about to ``fall into an abyss, staring in horror at the nothingness.'' The plot is revealed rapidly through uncertain and vague facts. The atmosphere is one of generalized chaos. An old man ``laments what he predicted and feared: the death of all faith, utopia, spiritual value and meaning.'' The text makes an impression as a lucid meditation on the state of life in Latin America, brimming with pessimism and terror. It is carried out in the style of a ``thriller'' with an unexpected ending.
