Abstract


The Conflicting Cuban Identity as Manifested in Nilo Cruz’s Anna in the Tropics Nilo Cruz ( 1960- )- winner of the Pulitzer Prize for drama, the Alton Jones Award and the Kesselring Prize- represents one of the most renowned Cuban American dramatists. Anna in the Tropics is one of the most important plays the American theater has produced in recent years. It evolves into an affirmation of the power of art. It presents a new image of Tolstoy’ Anna Karenina. The play also protests against the kind of Cuban life in the United States. As a product of Cuban American culture, Cruz endeavors to transmit the image of the land as an independent existence which transcends geographical borders.
