Florencio Sánchez

Sánchez, Florencio (flōrānˈsyō sänˈchās) [key], 1875–1910, Uruguayan playwright. His many plays concern pastoral life in the region of the Río de la Plata. Sánchez's style owes much to the naturalism of Ibsen, although it has none of its refinements. His major plays include La gringa [the foreign girl] (1904) and Barranca abajo [down the cliffs] (1905).
