  • An Actor Beckons
    • Abstract: When Édouard Manet viewed Diego de Velázquez’s portrait, Pablo de Valladolid (circa 1635, Museo del Prado, Madrid; cover illustration and fig. 1), he experienced an artistic epiphany. In a letter to Henri Fantin Latour, Manet judged the painting the most astonishing work ever rendered on canvas (“le plus étonnant morceau de peinture que l’on ait jamais fait est le tableau”). Following a catalogue of the Prado published by André-Absinthe Lavice in 1864 (186), he believed the figure represented a famous actor (“un acteur célèbre au temps de Philippe IV”) and described him beckoning out of thin air, his black costume adding lifelike force to the declamatory gesture (“le fond disparaît, c’est de l’air qui entoure ce ...

  • Siege as Spectacle in Cervantes’s La Numancia
    • Abstract: —España mi natura, Italia mi ventura, ¡Flandes mi sepultura!—When you resorted to force, ... you didn’t know where you were going. If you got deeper and deeper, there was just no limit except ... the limitations of force itself.MIGUEL DE CERVANTES’S La destrucción de la Numancia (circa 1580) both provokes and delights. The play’s vexing ideological indeterminacy provokes ongoing contestation among critics and scholars. Directors too must confront the fact that Cervantes’s early play “no está desprovista de cierta ambigüedad prestándose así a lecturas y adaptaciones contrapuestas” (Walthaus 131). Yet, if Numancia does not exactly communicate or represent, what does it deliver to its audiences and readers instead' I ... Read More

  • The Case Against Tirso de Molina’s “Nephew”
    • Abstract: FRAY GABRIEL TÉLLEZ, the Mercedarian priest known as Maestro Tirso de Molina, is purported to have handed publishing responsibilities to a nephew, Francisco Lucas de Ávila, naming him the compiler of his plays in Partes beginning in 1634. Scholars have debated whether the nephew lived in the world or only in the dramatist’s imagination. Vázquez Fernández, Florit Durán, and others affirm that the nephew was invented as an alter ego responsible for publishing his “uncle’s” works.1 On the other hand, Paterson believes that he was an historical figure: in 1635 Francisco Lucas was granted legal license to publish the plays of Parte V. If he were a fictitious character, the playwright would be involved in fraud (“Tirso ... Read More

  • Calderón’s Theater of the New World: Historical Mimesis in La
           aurora en Copacabana
    • Abstract: A WELL-KNOWN PASSAGE of the Poetics describes historians’ fact-oriented, “particular” accounts and dramatists’ “universal”—philosophical, psychological, holistic—stagings of historical characters and events as essentially equal, but basically different ways of envisioning history.1 Following Aristotle’s implicit vindication of dramatists’ historiographical contributions, this essay explores Pedro Calderón de la Barca’s La aurora en Copacabana as a compelling example of the fruitful and plentiful, but still insufficiently researched, Golden Age interface between aesthetics and history. Among the many forms of Golden Age aesthetic historiography, the historical mimesis2 of the Golden Age comedia histórica is a ... Read More

           Zarzuela: Calderón de la Barca’s El laurel de Apolo (1657) and Durón
           and Navas's Apolo y Dafne (circa 1700)
    • Abstract: No es comedia, sino sólouna fábula pequeñaen que, a imitación de Italia,se canta, y se representa ...(El laurel de Apolo, act 1 928)It is not a comedia, but onlya little fable,which, in imitation of the Italian style,is sung and acted ... 2 IN 1657 court dramatist Pedro Calderón de la Barca (1600–81) presented a new kind of play to King Philip IV (r. 1621–65) and his entourage. In order to prepare the audience for the drama about to be staged, Calderón had a character named Zarzuela describe the work in its introductory loa. The peasant girl Zarzuela explains that the play was not a three-act comedia but a fable in imitation of the favola in musica, Italy’s early form of opera. Thus, this new type of ... Read More

    • Abstract: El primer refugio del hombre tiene un gran interés para el estudio científico del auto sacramental porque permite ver en un solo cuadro, y relacionados entre sí, varios de los aspectos más complejos que conforman el intrincado panorama del teatro sacramental calderoniano1. De este auto se conserva la loa con la que se representó el jueves 16 de junio de 1661 y que, con total seguridad, fue escrita para acompañarlo porque ambos textos están concebidos como partes de la misma obra. También conocemos el auto con el que formó pareja en la representación de aquel año. Aunque se ha perdido el texto, gracias al contexto se puede conocer tanto su argumento como bastantes de los aspectos que rodearon su representación ... Read More

  • La Comedia nueva e le scene italiane nel Seicento: trame, drammaturgie,
           contesti a confronto ed. by Fausta Antonucci and Anna Tedesco (review)
    • Abstract: THE RICH AND COMPLEX RELATIONSHIP that developed during the seventeenth century between the comedia nueva and the various forms of Italian theater (theater, commedia dell’arte, opera) has been a steady object of study by several talented Italian Hispanists since the 1980s. Yet, this field has remained something of a specialist niche. This might be explained in part by the fact that, for several historical reasons, the literary Seicento was traditionally the poor relation of studies in Italian literature, and its richness has generated little attention. Also, until recently, as we shall see, Italian stage works of the seventeenth century were not performed regularly, so there was little practical incentive to ... Read More

  • Treating the Public: Charitable Theater and Civic Health in the Early

    • Abstract: RECENT YEARS HAVE SEEN AN IMPORTANT TREND toward linking the Iberian Peninsula to its New World colonies and territories with the understanding that by crossing the ocean—in both directions, often multiple times—people, ideas, practices, and objects underwent transformations and were enriched and altered by contacts on either end. Rachael Ball’s book, her first, takes plays and theater troupes on this voyage, thus offering an original, intriguing, and entertaining way of tracking the survival and meaning of cultural practices. In addition to giving us a transatlantic look at theater, she adds two layers: the first is the link between theater and public health institutions or charity efforts, often run by religious ...

  • El santo rey don Fernando (Segunda parte) by Pedro Calderón de la
           Barca (review)
    • Abstract: EL SANTO REY DON FERNANDO WAS COMPOSED BY CALDERÓN in two parts, both of them first staged at Madrid’s Corpus Christi celebrations in 1671, the year that began with the canonization of King Ferdinand III of Castile and Leon. His life provides the primary inspiration for the action of this pair of autos. The primera parte, edited jointly by Ignacio Arellano, J. Manuel Escudero, and M. Carmen Pinillos, was published in 1999 as volume 27 of the “Autos sacramentales completos” series. It is surely a cause for celebration that, seventeen years on, the segunda parte is at last available, as volume 93 of this important collection that has earned a sterling reputation on the bases of both the accuracy and clarity of the ...

  • El secreto a voces by Pedro Calderón de la Barca (review)
    • Abstract: WITH THIS EXCELLENT EDITION OF CALDERÓN’S El secreto a voces, Wolfram Aichinger, Simon Kroll, and Fernando Rodríguez-Gallego have made a major contribution not only to comedia studies, but also to the larger fields of early modern Spanish literature and European literary and political relations. Despite Calderón’s importance as one of early modern Europe’s greatest dramatists, we still lack good critical editions of many of his comedias. The textual history of El secreto a voces is complex, in keeping with much of the Calderonian corpus. First, there are two manuscripts: Calderón’s autograph (BNE Res. 117) written in 1642 for the autor de comedias Antonio de Prado, and a partial manuscript in the Hispanic Society ... Read More

  • Beyond Spain’s Borders: Women Players in Early Modern National Theaters
           ed. by Anne J. Cruz and María Cristina Quintero (review)
    • Abstract: AS THE LATE YOGI BERRA WAS REPORTED to have said, “in theory there’s not much difference between theory and practice. In practice there is.” In theory, most scholars of early modern theater will readily concede the need for transnational approaches to what was, in fact, an international phenomenon. In practice, because of entrenched institutional inertia and the sheer stretch of going outside of one’s national comfort zone, most people just don’t get around to it. There is no sign today that English professors teaching Shakespeare and his English contemporaries know anything more about Spanish, French, Italian, or German theater than they did fifty years ago. The new historicist revolution significantly widened the ... Read More

  • Women’s Somatic Training in Early Modern Spanish Theater by Elizabeth
           Marie Cruz Petersen (review)
    • Abstract: IN WOMEN’S SOMATIC TRAINING IN EARLY MODERN SPANISH THEATER, Elizabeth Marie Cruz Petersen skillfully uses somaesthetics to shed light on the professional training of the early modern Spanish actress. Although there is copious scholarship about Golden Age plays and playhouses, there are few studies that emphasize the art of acting. A highlight of this work is Cruz Petersen’s close reading of stage directions, cues from dialogue, and metatheatrical comments in order to elucidate the rigorous training demanded of early modern actresses to execute their roles. While narrower in scope, the focus on performance makes Cruz Petersen’s study a good companion for Evangelina Rodríguez Cuadros’s La técnica del actor español ... Read More

  • Shakespeare, Popularity and the Public Sphere by Jeffrey S. Doty (review)
    • Abstract: JEFFREY S. DOTY’S BOOK SHAKESPEARE, POPULARITY AND THE PUBLIC SPHERE represents an engaging approach to the intersection of politics, publicity, and popularity in late sixteenth- and early seventeenth-century England, illustrating the way these notions are portrayed and put into action in six plays by William Shakespeare. Doty’s starting point is that the idea of popularity was in flux in early modern England. Political theorists and moralists often condemned attempts by the elites to rely on the common support and to obtain popular favor as a way to advance their careers in the political milieu, and public discourse could easily fall under the category of defamation. At the same time, the social and cultural ... Read More

    • Abstract: IT IS REMARKABLE THAT FOR ALMOST FORTY YEARS Jonas Barish’s The Antitheatrical Prejudice (U of California P, 1981) has remained the definitive, go-to reference for scholars who wish to address or simply cite matters of antitheatricality. It is, therefore, a bold—but certainly timely— move by Lisa Freeman to analyze antitheatricality anew. She delivers on this task with a thorough and thought-provoking investigation realized in a compelling series of case studies that demonstrate the pervasiveness of antitheatrical onslaughts across theater history. She considers the “contentious discursive environment, political, religious, philosophical, literary, and dramatic,” in which antitheatricality is produced and ... Read More

In 1624 the Mercedarian was in the position of appealing to a man called Luis Suero de Quiñones y Acuña (1586–1648) to underwrite publication of the miscellany Cigarrales de Toledo. Who was this person to whom Tirso turned for support and dedicated his first published work' In the introduction and first three chapters, Gil-Osle approaches the subject from various angles, offering historical and contemporary opinions, textual evidence, and archival information about Suero.

  • What Was Tragedy' Theory and the Early Modern Canon by Blair Hoxby
           (review)
    • Abstract: IN TIMES OF CHAOS, tragedy has been the spirit or the ghost that hovers over history. Tragedy has also been particularly long-lived as a theatrical genre, one whose aesthetic has changed over the course of the centuries, and with it, so too, its appraisal by critics. What Was Tragedy' reflects recent interest in reception studies, as some of its chapters diligently consider the performance history and success of a variety of theatrical texts, some now forgotten (as is the case of Stefonio’s Crispus), some relegated to a secondary position within the corpus of extremely canonical authors (as is the case of Shakespeare’s Antony and Cleopatra). With a conceptual-history bent, What Was Tragedy' is an in-depth ... Read More

Moors Dressed as Moors seemed at first sight a strange title to give a book; what else would they be dressed as' But once the reader gets into the book, it becomes clear that the title has been very deliberately chosen, even though the first part of this work has little to do with Moors dressing as Moors; rather it examines how and why aristocratic or noble Christians dressed as Moors, and what this had to ...

    • Abstract: ANYONE SUCH AS MYSELF WHO WAS EDUCATED in multicultural Birmingham, a stronghold of industry and heavy metal—but within commutable distance of Stratford-upon-Avon—is predisposed to have, at best, an ambivalent relationship with Shakespeare. Prior to ever reading or seeing any of his plays, I’d been taken on numerous school trips to the provincial backwater whose chief selling point was its being the birthplace of the world genius of literature. I was all too quick to nod in agreement when a young, new teacher, keen to ingratiate herself with a bunch of teenagers, informed us that the Bard would be writing for soap operas if he were alive today. An obvious riposte is that Dallas (1978–1991) would likely have aged ... Read More

The authors have combined their expertise in medieval and early modern English culture with basic elements of embodied cognition theory as established within the English-language and European theater canon. Most importantly, their conclusions on spectatorship and their applications of cognitive-emotive scholarship are solid. Their “spectatorial turn” considers not only numerous biological constraints on each “self” but also pragmatic issues of location, spatial orientation, posture, and other contextually specific cultural practices of the pre-modern period. ...

They underscore the learning and intelligence of Feliciana Enríquez de Guzmán, a writer from Seville whose life has been fascinatingly reconstructed in a recent biography by Piedad Bolaños Donoso (Doña Feliciana Enríquez de Guzmán, U de Sevilla, 2012). The two-part work that bookends these entremeses, the Tragicomedia de los jardines y campos sabeos (circa 1619), is an erudite reworking of classical mythology and rightly omitted from this edition.

In contrast, Taylor’s monumental tome provides a comprehensive—even breathtaking—overview of the important shrines of New Spain, from their first foundation in the sixteenth century through the early decades of the eighteenth century.Taylor’s focus here is on the role that shrines played in constructing “place” in New Spain. Rather than emphasize critical synthesis, his “principal aim, then, is to understand shrines and sacred images during the colonial ... Read More

    • Abstract: THIS IS PROLOPE’S FIFTEENTH VOLUME OF LOPE’S PLAYS. With the exception of the unauthorized Partes III (three authentic plays) and V (one play), all contain a dozen comedias, bringing the total edited by the team so far to 148. As such, the project has made great progress, but there is still a long way to go.

  • La vega del Parnaso by Lope de Vega (review)
    • Abstract: LA VEGA DEL PARNASO ES UNA EXTENSA OBRA MISCELÁNEA de Lope de Vega que contiene ocho comedias y veintiséis poemas. Lope empieza a preparar el libro en 1633, pero finalmente se publica póstumo en 1637 gracias a José Ortiz de Villena: en efecto, a pesar de que la aprobación esté fechada entre el 26 y el 27 de agosto de 1635, día de la muerte del poeta, y que el privilegio se conceda el 3 de noviembre, la tasa se extiende solo un año y medio después, el 2 de julio de 1637. Algunos de los textos incluidos en La vega del Parnaso ya contaban con ediciones modernas, pero faltaba todavía una edición completa de la obra, que es lo que presentan aquí Felipe Pedraza y Pedro Conde. Los dos especialistas han dirigido a un ... Read More

  • La niña de Gómez Arias by Luis Vélez de Guevara (review)
    • Abstract: NUNCA ALABAREMOS BASTANTE LA TITÁNICA LABOR de William R. Manson y C. George Peale, quienes desde 2002 vienen editando con gran pulcritud todas las obras teatrales de Luis Vélez de Guevara, dramaturgo hoy más mencionado que efectivamente leído y estudiado. En efecto, el novelista creador de El diablo cojuelo ha eclipsado a un notable autor de comedias que rivalizó en los gustos del público con Lope de Vega, Tirso de Molina o Pedro Calderón de la Barca. Aunque se le atribuye un centenar de obras, solo ahora empiezan a resultar accesibles a la mayoría de los lectores e investigadores.En ese sentido, esta edición de La niña de Gómez Arias merece los mayores elogios. No se trataba de una tarea fácil, sobre todo porque ... Read More

  • Spectacular Wealth: The Festivals of Colonial South American Mining Towns
           by Lisa Voigt (review)
    • Abstract: IN THIS CAREFULLY RESEARCHED AND THOUGHTFULLY CRAFTED BOOK, Lisa Voigt makes a compelling case against José Antonio Maravall’s argument that civic festivals were among the key practices used by church and crown to direct the culture of the Hispanic world during the Baroque period. According to Maravall (and others), such festivals rehearsed the triumph of civilization over barbarism, Christianity over paganism, and Spain over its various ethnic and racial others, thereby serving to impress the masses with the majesty of the Crown or the truth of the Faith. Voigt overturns this argument by carefully examining a series of printed descriptions of religious and secular festivals held in the colonial Latin American ... Read More

  • Unsettled Toleration: Religious Difference on the Shakespearean Stage by
           Brian Walsh (review)
    • Abstract: RELIGION IS ONE OF THE MAIN PROTAGONISTS of Shakespeare’s plays and those of his contemporaries. Religious conflicts were widespread throughout Europe and featured prominently in England, whose society was in search of a religious identity that would settle arguments between different Protestant factions. Unsettled Toleration argues that English drama attempted to depict these conflicts as solvable, either by providing an ecumenical understanding of Protestant religious identity or by portraying the possibility of daily coexistence between people of different beliefs.The main religious conflict in the book is within the Protestant family, rather than between Protestants and other confessions. The intra-Protestant ... Read More

  • A Theater of Diplomacy: International Relations and the Performing Arts in
           Early Modern France by Ellen R. Welch (review)
    • Abstract: ELLEN R. WELCH’S EXAMINATION OF THE RELATIONSHIP between the arts and the rise of professional diplomacy in France from 1565 to the end of Louis XIV’s reign is a timely, essential guide to understanding the importance of soft power in French and European diplomacy. In the wake of the recent state visits hosted by the new president of France, it is crucial to remember and to assess justly and accurately the role of theatricality in diplomatic affairs.A Theater of Diplomacy starts with the discussion of a long-standing bone of contention between literary analysts and historians: metaphor. As a way of neutralizing the potential conflict, Welch lists the usual negative and positive associations of diplomacy and drama ... Read More
