"Dominicaneando" is surprising in its expression, fits naturally into the line of historical reflections that José Miguel Soto Jiménez has developed in many of his previous works. Perhaps this one, Dominicaneando, is the most provocative and the most demanding of all of them and requires a reflective and unprejudiced reading at all times, because all that avalanche of Dominicanisms, criollisms and swear words in its pages hides an original mechanism where popular language plays the role of the choir in ancient Greek dramas. Naturally, in this case a rowdy, mocking, daring choir with the self-confidence and informality so common among Dominicans and Caribbean people in general.
