Abstract

Born in 1931, Equatorial Guinean academic and intellectual Trinidad Morgades1 has seen the transition of her country from a Spanish colony to an independent nation. She has witnessed the emergence of postcolonial regimes and the transformation of her country's economy from one based on cacao and timber production under the Spanish colonial administration to one centered on a booming oil industry in postcolonial times.2 Her only published literary work, Antigona (1991), a drama referencing Sophocles's famous tragedy, is concerned with a crucial national process that she has observed: the failure of the democratic efforts in her nation.
