  • Prologue
    • Abstract: As the Bulletin of the Comediantes enters its eighth decade of continuous publication, we present volume 71, numbers 1 and 2, together. The occasion that inspired this departure from our twice-yearly publication was particularly auspicious: this double issue serves, in effect, as the selected proceedings of a colloquium held in Madrid on 6–7 July 2018 in honor of Margaret R. Greer, professor emeritus of Duke University. The director of the Biblioteca Nacional de España (BNE), Ana Santos Aramburo, launched the colloquium with an eloquent assessment of Greer's impact. The inaugural statement struck us as a powerful distillation of the research agendas that have long inspired this journal. For this reason, we were ... Read More

  • John Jay Allen (1932–2019)
    • Abstract: conocí a jay por primera vez en octubre de 1989, cuando ambos participamos, junto con John Varey, Andrew Gurr, Ángel García, John Orrell, Thomas Middleton y otros, en unas jornadas de trabajo convocadas por el Ayuntamiento de Alcalá de Henares, para hacer recomendaciones sobre el futuro de la recientemente descubierta Casa de Comedias. Jay fue el primer hispanista en ser contactado por los descubridores del teatro, Miguel Ángel Coso y Juan Sanz, a raíz de la publicación de su pionero libro sobre el Corral del Príncipe: The Reconstruction of a Spanish Golden Age Playhouse (UP of Florida) en 1983. Llamo pionero a su libro por cuatro razones: (1) Jay fue el primero en intentar una reconstrucción visual de un teatro ... Read More

  • Discurso inaugural del coloquio Manos Teatrales, Culturas Materiales: los
           Itinerarios de Investigación de Margaret Greer
    • Abstract: en primer lugar, felicitar a los organizadores por la celebración de este merecido homenaje; y en segundo lugar, agradecer el honor de poder dirigirme a todos ustedes para abrir esta jornada1. Es para mí una gran satisfacción recordar lo que ha significado la figura de Margaret Greer, dedicada a la labor de investigación desde principios de los años ochenta hasta la actualidad, para la Biblioteca Nacional de España (BNE).Margaret siempre se ha sentido atraída por los libros quizá porque, como ella misma confiesa en su "Autobiografía", el olor de los libros le transporta a su casa (Greer 237). Probablemente esa es la razón por la que en la Sala Cervantes de la BNE le gusta sentarse siempre en el mismo pupitre, el ... Read More

  • Las Sententiae de Andrés Eborense (Lyon, 1557) en las dedicatorias de
           comedias y en otras obras de Lope de Vega
    • Abstract: ¡Sabrosa cosa es esto de latinizar!Las Sententiae del Eborense en las dedicatorias de las Partes 13 a 20 de ComediasEn algunas ediciones recientes de textos de Lope de Vega se ha apuntado la posibilidad—una certeza para nosotros, como aquí intentaremos mostrar—de que, a la hora de incluir en sus textos sentencias de autores antiguos, aprovechara la compilación de ellas publicada por vez primera en Lyon 1557 a nombre de Andreas Eborensis y reeditada varias veces (por diferentes impresores y en diversas ciudades europeas) durante los ochenta años siguientes1; de ese modo se convirtió en uno de los repertorios de erudición más difundidos durante esa época, y aun en las posteriores. En realidad, las sententiae se ... Read More

  • El texto de La adúltera penitente: comicidad, censura y exigencias
           escénicas en una comedia de santos
    • Abstract: los textos teatrales áureos, dado que llegaban a un público mucho más amplio que el de las obras poéticas y narrativas, sufrieron la intensa vigilancia de la censura, así como la necesidad de adaptarse a las necesidades escénicas de las compañías teatrales y de los lugares de representación. El género de la comedia de santos, que abría sus argumentos a pasajes escabrosos o cercanos a lo erótico, y que tendía a la espectacularidad en la representación debido a las intervenciones sobrenaturales, era aún más susceptible de padecer tanto la intervención de los censores como los ajustes escenográficos.Buen ejemplo de ello lo constituye La adúltera penitente, comedia hagiográfica escrita en colaboración por tres ...

  • The Text of Calderón's Luis Pérez el gallego
    • Abstract: luis pérez el gallego is an unusual play, possibly written when Calderón was in his late twenties. The palace accounts show that it was performed by the company of Antonio de Prado on 21 December in either 1628 or 1629, probably the former.1 The plot has a historical setting: for example, two of the characters arrive in Sanlúcar, where "el duque" is "general capitán" in the war which the king is waging against England. Sanlúcar de Barrameda (Andalusia) was the home of the Duke of Medina Sidonia, who commanded the Armada Invencible of 1588, and a later passage has one of the characters about to embark in that fleet. These references seem to place the events in and just prior to May 1588; however, the Portuguese ... Read More

  • Everett Hesse, Vera Tassis y el texto de las comedias de Calderón
    • Abstract: la principal vía de transmisión de las comedias de Calderón fue, hasta hace relativamente poco, la edición póstuma llevada a cabo por Juan de Vera Tassis de 108 comedias repartidas a docenas en nueve Partes, cuatro de las cuales eran reediciones de las cuatro partes publicadas en vida del poeta con su consentimiento o colaboración activa. Fue Emilio Cotarelo y Mori, en la biografía de Calderón que publicó en 1924, quien inició un cambio en la actitud hacia Vera y sus ediciones (Cotarelo, "Ensayo"). Cotarelo hablaba de Vera y sus labores con desprecio y hasta hostilidad, y esta actitud adversa fue adoptada posteriormente por otros estudiosos y por muchos editores de sus comedias, sobre todo después de la ...

    • Abstract: for Meg, per aequa et iniquaSi tratáredes de amores, con dos onzas que sepáis de la lengua toscana, toparéis con León Hebreo que os hincha las medidas.it is now commonplace to cite neoplatonism as the informing philosophy of Lope de Vega's entertaining comedy La dama boba, either as the text's sincere or ironic foundation. Interestingly, mid-century analyses of La dama boba by Fucilla, Wardropper, and Zamora Vicente did not mention Neoplatonism at all. It was Margaret Wilson who set the wheels for that association in motion, observing in her 1969 study that "love speeds up [Finea's] mental development," a process through which Lope dramatizes "one element of the popular philosophy of the sixteenth century" (77). ...

  • Playing Gender: Toward a Quantitative Comparison of Female Roles in Lope
           de Vega and Shakespeare
    • Abstract: In the winter season of 2013, a British acting company directed by Laurence Boswell performed a cycle of seventeenth-century Spanish plays at the Ustinov Theater in Bath, United Kingdom. The three comedias chosen for what would be Boswell's third season of Spanish Golden Age drama were Tirso de Molina's Don Gil de las calzas verdes and Lope de Vega's La dama boba and El castigo sin venganza. Translated into English, these plays were performed by actors and intended for audiences who shared the tacit assumption that the theater of Habsburg Spain strongly resembled that of Shakespeare and English Tudor-Stuart playwrights. And their belief stands on solid ground: in an academic environment increasingly drawn toward ... Read More

Su lugar en la historia teatral se mueve tortuosamente entre la acusación de ser un mero plagiador o refundidor de comedias de otros poetas y autor de piezas mediocres, y la imagen opuesta, la de un dramaturgo de cuya pluma salieron varias obras de gran calidad. Su recepción crítica ha evolucionado, por tanto, desde las acusaciones vertidas a partir del siglo XIX por Juan Eugenio Hartzenbusch, Marcelino Menéndez ... Read More

  • La primera puesta en escena de Los tres mayores prodigios de Calderón
    • Abstract: la primera representación de Los tres mayores prodigios en la Noche de San Juan de 1636 supuso una variación de estrategia en los estrenos de las fiestas palaciegas de carácter mitológico por parte de Pedro Calderón de la Barca, tal vez provocada por complicadas experiencias anteriores. De hecho, en el estreno de El mayor encanto, amor, en 1635, la complicada tramoya, la excesiva duración de la representación, la representación en un estanque con naves y maquinaria compleja y, en fin, el uso de fuegos artificiales generaron problemas de representabilidad y hasta un accidente que costó la vida a algunos hombres. Este cambio implica el abandono momentáneo de las tramoyas más complejas que tuvieron tanto peso en el ... Read More

Más adelante, los sucesores del Rey Planeta también supieron apreciar las virtudes de aquel palacio suburbano para la construcción y proyección de la narrativa de exaltación de la Monarquía Hispánica.

    • Abstract: near the end of the film version of Michael Ondaatje's The English Patient (directed by Anthony Minghella, 1996), the British archaeologist Peter Maddox (Julian Wadham) attempts to apologize to his friend Count László de Almásy (Ralph Fiennes): "I have to teach myself not to read too much into everything. It comes from too long having to read so much into hardly anything at all." As an aspiring medievalist in the mid-90s, I read this apology as a warning. Surrounded by fragments, bits, and scraps, and (more importantly) lacking the training at that point to deal with them, I braced myself for the hermeneutic shambles that medieval studies might just make of my life.Two decades later, and having never fully resolved ...

    • Abstract: katrin beushausen's historical survey is the latest monograph dedicated to the relationship between the public sphere and theater in early modern England, a topic that has recently been attracting critical attention, for example in Jeffrey Doty's book Shakespeare, Popularity and the Public Sphere (Cambridge UP, 2017), already reviewed in this journal (vol. 69, no. 2, pp. 143–45). Both monographs address the usefulness of adapting the concept of the public sphere as defined by Jürgen Habermas for the eighteenth century in order to analyze the new roles of commoners in early modern society and contemplate their presence in social discourse.

New forms of adaptation and different sorts of performance venues have radically changed the relationship between actors and spectators, and the "digital revolution" has fundamentally altered the "concept of'live' performance" (1).Organized into four parts that cut across categories, the thirty-six essays evince the many ...

Luis Iglesia Feijoo and Antonio Sánchez Jiménez's critical edition of Calderón's Poesía gathers that corpus for the first time. They emphasize, in particular, the influence of Góngora and Lope de Vega on Calderón's poetry: "En este sentido, la poesía no dramática se revela esencial para comprender la evolución literaria de Calderón: tras unos inicios de la mano de Lope, incorpora elementos gongorizantes hasta construir su estilo más característico, que va depurando después en su producción final" (22). ...

Ignacio López Alemany's excellent critical edition of two libretti by José de Cañizares (1676–1750) is an important step towards remedying this lacuna. As he notes in the introduction, scholars of this period need editions that include not only extraliterary aspects but also the political, economic, and social conditions in which the works were composed: "son contextos que determinan y coproducen el mensaje" (16). Thanks to his experiences in the archival study of court theater ... Read More

The confluence of social science, obstetrical practices, and history of art in this generously illustrated study of royal pregnancy and childbirth makes a compelling argument for maternity as a field of research in its own right, with the potential to change academic approaches to the history of the family as well as material culture and court ritual. The authority and physical activity of women as midwives and birth attendants in Spanish accounts and visual depictions of these events challenge the models of feminine silence and passivity in literary and ...

Giles and Steven Wagschal call the "sensory turn" (4) in the humanities and social sciences. This less trodden path of the other four senses constitutes fertile ground for exploration, particularly given the different roles that senses such as smell or sound played in the shifting sociohistoric circumstances covered by the book's more than five-hundred-year timeframe.

This new focus showcases the need to revisit and broaden the scope of the "Spanish Renaissance." More broadly, it reflects the ongoing globalization of art history as the discipline questions just what national boundaries mean with regard to artistic production. This Festschrift offered in tribute to the late Leuven art historian Jan Karel Steppe (1918–2009) constitutes a valuable contribution to these discussions. Comprising fifteen essays by international scholars, the volume "reflects upon the diverse ways in which Netherlandish works of art permeated the ... Read More

    • Abstract: one of the challenges facing scholars who work on disability in medieval, early modern, and eighteenth-century culture is that most work in disability studies has concentrated on modern and contemporary culture. For Hispanists, the fact that this scholarship has been predominately Anglophone in focus is an additional challenge. For these reasons, Encarnación Juárez-Almendros's book—which examines early modern Spanish texts from the vantage point of feminist disability studies while keeping in mind the historical and social context that gave rise to them—is welcome. In the very first sentence of her introduction, she sets out for her readers what she plans to accomplish: "to examine, from the perspective of feminist ... Read More

           Hilaire Kallendorf (review)
    • Abstract: hilaire kallendorf's Ambiguous Antidotes: Virtue as Vaccine for Vice in Early Modern Spain frames Spanish comedia within the Counter-Reformation discourse on moral action, or what she calls "Virtue." The word "antidote" in the book's title nods toward Derrida's understanding of language as pharmakon, or substance that can contain the seed of its own undoing. The alliterative subtitle, "Virtue as Vaccine for Vice," makes this link explicit, for vaccines rely for their protective properties on injecting into the patient's bloodstream a tiny amount of the contagion that they aim to avert. Kallendorf links this pharmacological conceit to the realm of ethical behavior. As the dust jacket warns, "Ambiguous Antidotes ... Read More

    • Abstract: in la poétique (1639), the French dramatic theorist and playwright La Mesnardiére wrote that women on stage should not be portrayed as heroic or clever, since these characteristics contradicted the rules of vraisemblance or verisimilitude (qtd. in Kennedy 2). But, as Theresa Varney Kennedy demonstrates, women playwrights often did not follow his recommendations. Continuing the work of scholars such as Perry Gethner, Nathalie Grande, and Erica Harth, Kennedy focuses on heroines in plays by women from 1637 to 1761. Kennedy is particularly interested in rationality as a possibility for women and the ways in which this theme is developed in plays by women in the seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries.After a brief ...

    • Abstract: the german original of wolfram nitsch's recently published study appeared in the year 2000. This new version is the most profound and far-ranging account known to me of the classical Spanish theater in relation to play, conceived of as drama within the drama, role-playing within the play, disguise, adoption of another's costume, other species of impersonation, games, betting, cheating, gambling at cards, playing chess, and so on. In the preface to the translation of 2018 (ix–xiii), the author details the particular difficulty of getting the work from German into Spanish. Unlike French (e.g., Le jeu de Saint Nicolas) or German (e.g., der Spiel, denoting play; Lustspiel, comedy; Trauerspiel, tragedy; ... Read More

  • Primer tomo de comedias. Volumen 1.3: Olimpa y Vireno, El señor don Juan
           de Austria, Los amantes de Teruel by Juan Pérez de Montalbán (review)
    • Abstract: this volume is the result of work conducted under the auspices of the Claudia Demattè-directed project Un dramaturgo madrileño recuperado: Juan Pérez de Montalbán; it is the third of four installments of critical editions of the twelve plays comprising Juan Pérez de Montalbán's Primer tomo de comedias of 1635, although this third volume contains, in fact, the final three plays of the original collection: Olimpa y Vireno, El señor don Juan de Austria, and Los amantes de Teruel, edited and introduced here, respectively, by Marcella Trambaioli, Roberta Alviti, and Teresa Ferrer Valls. The thematic and generic variety observable between these three comedias is emblematic of the diversity of the compositions in the ... Read More

  • Dramatic Geography: Romance, Intertheatricality, and Cultural Encounter in
           Early Modern Mediterranean Drama by Laurence Publicover (review)
    • Abstract: to begin: a caveat for bulletin readers: although Publicover's title announces a focus on "Mediterranean drama," his study considers exclusively English plays. Two central claims will nonetheless be of interest to scholars working more broadly across the national traditions. First, Publicover argues that early modern theater was particularly suited to the representation of far-flung romance geographies, given how flexible and minimal its scenery and stage apparatus were. As is well known to scholars of the comedia, "location was established through a number of strategies, but most importantly through the words of the actors" (22). This argument works against teleological readings that might equate the increased ... Read More

  • Plato's Persona: Marsilio Ficino, Renaissance Humanism, and Platonic
           Traditions by Denis J.-J. Robichaud (review)
    • Abstract: in plato's persona, denis robichaud studies Italian Renaissance philosopher Marsilio Ficino's writings with the keen eye and skills of a multilingual classical philologist, yet also through the broad perspective of an intellectual historian. Noting that Ficino is usually read for his scholarly contributions rather than his rhetorical skills, Robichaud aptly employs that additional lens to highlight the Italian philosopher's importance for both intellectual and creative letters. The result is an impressive study that elucidates the surprisingly poetic aspects of Ficino's thought and practices. Of particular interest for readers of this journal will be Robichaud's exploration of the Italian philosopher's staging of ... Read More

  • Political Culture in Spanish America, 1500–1830 by Jaime E.
           Rodríguez O. (review)
    • Abstract: jaime e. rodríguez o. has built a distinguished career as a historian of Spanish America, with a primary focus on what Atlanticists call the Age of Revolutions (1750–1850). His studies, drawing on extensive research into the government institutions, individual policy makers, and communities of the Kingdom of Quito and the Viceroyalty of New Spain (today's Ecuador and Mexico, respectively), have long offered a comparative framework with the rest of Spanish America and also with comparable cases in British North American and European imperial history. This volume is a compilation of eight individual articles and lectures from the past twenty years, some of which were previously published in two volumes in Spanish as ... Read More

  • Tragic Drama in the Golden Age of Spain: Seven Essays on the Definition of
           a Genre by Henry W. Sullivan (review)
    • Abstract: sullivan's splendid study is presented in seven interwoven essays that cover a lot of ground in great depth. They move nimbly from consideration of early modern literary treatises to German Romantic and idealist philosophy to Greek mythology and drama, Reformation and Counter-Reformation theology, and more; from analysis of plays by Luis Velez de Guevara and Lope de Vega to those by Antonio Mira de Amescua, Tirso de Molina, Pedro Calderón de la Barca, and others. Those familiar with Sullivan's decades of scholarship will see its stamp on several of the new essays, along with his characteristic luminous prose and affable style. The thread that Sullivan keenly advances throughout the chapters of Tragic Drama in the ... Read More

  • Cartas (1604–1633) by Lope de Vega (review)
    • Abstract: pocos textos muestran tan detalladamente la vida intima de un escritor como las cartas de Lope de Vega. En ellas no solo quedan patentes sus rencillas literarias más o menos sangrientas (contra Cervantes, contra Góngora, contra Vélez de Guevara), el proceso de gestación de muchos de sus poemas y comedias (El mejor mozo de España, La burgalesa de Lerma, El bastardo Mudarra, Los ramilletes de Madrid, El mayor imposible), su relación con actores y autores (Juan de Morales Medrano, Juan Cuadrado, Hernán Sánchez de Vargas, Alonso de Riquelme, Roque de Figueroa), sino también sus temores por la salud de sus hijos, sus achaques, sus problemas de visión—por los que se vio obligado a escribir y leer con gafas desde 1612— ...

  • Comedias Parte XVII by Lope de Vega (review)
    • Abstract: in one of the many loas collected in his El viaje entretenido (1603), the Spanish poet Agustín de Rojas Villandrando describes his compatriot Lope de Vega as "el Apolo de nuestros poetas," who had written "tantas farsas por momentos, / y todas ellas tan buenas, / que ni yo sabré contarlas, / ni hombre humano encarecerlas" (edited by Jean Pierre Ressot, 2nd ed., Castalia, 1995, p. 155). The exact number of plays that Lope de Vega wrote remains uncertain to this day: at one point he himself humbly claimed to have penned over fifteen hundred, although scholars nowadays believe it was probably closer to eight hundred. Many of them were published in large weighty anthologies; others were printed and sold individually as ... Read More

  • San Nicolás de Tolentino by Lope de Vega (review)
    • Abstract: roy norton has developed his university of oxford doctoral dissertation (2014) into an exemplary critical edition of Lope de Vega's San Nicolás de Tolentino, first published in 1641 in the Veinticuatro parte perfecta de las comedias del Fénix de España. Norton's text of the play, which is based on the princeps edition, is accompanied by a profuse number of footnotes in Spanish. These footnotes discuss Lope's references and allusions to biblical and theological subjects, early modern theatrical conventions, and sociocultural as well as historical contexts. They provide translations of Latin terms and phrases and explanations of early modern words and expressions that present-day readers might have difficulty ... Read More

  • "Los cielos se agotaron de prodigios": Essays in honor of Frederick A. de
           Armas ed. by Christopher B. Weimer et al. (review)
    • Abstract: some books are easy to review, others are difficult. The recent Festschrift to Frederick A. de Armas edited by a team of his former doctoral students is somewhere in between. On one hand, it is difficult to assess because it consists of thirty-one widely differing texts about which little can be summarized: a "tribute," an introduction, and twenty-nine scholarly essays with very different subjects and approaches (followed by the impressive curriculum vitae and publication list of Professor de Armas that actually deserve an essay of their own, presenting as they do the image of an exceptional career).On the other hand, however, the book is easy to review for many of the same reasons that make it difficult to do so: ...
