Playing the Court: Court Theater During the Reign of Carlos II of Spain (1661-1700) by Caitlin O'Reilly Brady( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This project analyzes a long-neglected dimension of Early Modern Peninsular Studies: court theater. My thesis explores theoretical, political, and scenographic frameworks of court drama written for and produced in the court of Carlos II of Spain. I explore the notions of imagined communities and agency in order to understand how the theater functioned within the Habsburg court, and I juxtapose the role of the king as a spectator to that of the individual consumer of the public theater to confirm it is possible not to identify as part of the mass public during theater consumption. From there, my archival research exposes the political conflicts during the 1670s between Queen Regent Mariana of Austria and her illegitimate step-son, Don Juan Jose, as their opposing factions vied to dominate the terrain of courtly politics in Madrid. My research investigates how these tensions were reflected in the 1670s works: La estatua de Prometeo and Fieras afemina amor by Pedro Calderon de la Barca. This then led me to consider the political anxieties around the topic of succession in the 1690s as well. I illustrate that Francisco Antonio de Bances Candamo's political trilogy offered viable options for an heir through his presentation of what I term the nephew-king paradigm. My research illustrates how politics and royal theater production in the 1670s and 1690s were linked due to theater's status as a facet of the royal Baroque identity. My project concludes by establishing court drama as its own genre through an investigation of court performance, the scenographic advancement, and the musical evolution in Baroque Spanish court drama--a highly original artistic genre in seventeenth-century Spain. I establish staged performance as malleable and trans-dynastic as it outlasts the performance of the monarchs for which the work was staged. Ultimately, this project proves that theater is a part of royal Baroque Spanish identity
Chariots of Ladies : Francesc Eiximenis and the Court Culture of Medieval and Early Modern Iberia by Nuria Silleras-Fernandez( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Chariots of Ladies, Nuria Silleras-Fernandez traces the development of devotion and female piety among the Iberian aristocracy from the late Middle Ages into the Golden Age, and from Catalonia to the rest of Iberia and Europe via the rise of the Franciscan Observant movement. A program of piety and morality devised by Francesc Eiximenis, a Franciscan theologian, royal counselor, and writer in Catalonia in the 1390s, came to characterize the feminine ideal in the highest circles of the Iberian aristocracy in the era of the Empire. As Eiximenis's work was adapted and translated into Castilian over the century and a half that followed, it became a model of devotion and conduct for queens and princesses, including Isabel the Catholic and her descendants, who ruled over Portugal and the Spanish Empire of the Hapsburgs. Silleras-Fernandez uses archival documentation, letters, manuscripts, incunabula, and a wide range of published material to clarify how Eiximenis's ideas on gender and devotion were read by Countess Sanxa Ximenis d'Arenós and Queen Maria de Luna of Aragon and how they were then changed by his adaptors and translators in Castile for new readers (including Isabel the Catholic and Juana the Mad), and in sixteenth-century Portugal for new patronesses (Juana's daughter, Catalina of Habsburg, and Catalina's daughter, Maria Manuela, first wife of Philip II). Chariots of Ladies casts light on a neglected dimension of encounter and exchange in Iberia from the late fourteenth to the mid-sixteenth centuries
Never-Ending Stories: Living Texts on Dinis I of Portugal and Isabel of Aragon by Taiko Maria Haessler( )

1 edition published in 2020 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Dinis I of Portugal (1261-1325) and his queen-consort, Isabel of Aragon (1271-1336), reigned in Portugal at the height of the kingdom's cultural and political vibrancy. This synchronic study adopts a corpus of biographical texts produced shortly before and after their deaths. Close readings of the Cronica de 1344, Livro de linhagens, a hagiographical narrative of the queen known commonly as the Lenda da Rainha Santa Isabel, and the monarchs' self-designed tombs sheds light on the medieval narratological response to a liminal moment of transition: death. Two politically and culturally powerful monarchs died and needed to be remembered. The desire to keep a story of the monarchs alive in such close proximity to their deaths greatly impacted the way in which these narratives were crafted. This dissertation proposes that the dialogic narrative responses to the monarchs' lives, composed from within view of their deaths, represents a literary strategy I term "living texts."

La Presencia Inefable: Representacion y Formas De Conocer En La Novela Sentimental iberica Del Siglo Xv by R. Andrea Orellana Capriles( )

1 edition published in 2020 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

La novela sentimental fue un genero literario de ficcion en prosa, propio de la peninsula iberica y de sus territorios mediterraneos, que surgio a mitades del siglo XV y que entro en declive a mediados del siglo XVI. En esta investigacion, elegimos nueve obras de diferentes periodos del genero para dar cuenta del problema de la representacion, que denominamos "la presencia inefable". Se propone una lectura en tres niveles, que responde a tres formas de conocer de la epoca medieval: por medio de la "razon" del discurso legal y teologico, del orden semiotico-visual que propone el modo carnavalesco, y el modo alegorico. La tesis central de esta investigacion es que en estos textos existe una intencion de desestabilizar el sentido unico, ya que son novelas que apelan a diferentes tipos de lector de manera consciente. Por esto, se propone una lectura subversiva de un genero que ha sido considerado como escapista, ya que surge en un periodo de crisis politica profunda a nivel de peninsula. La investigacion busca responder interrogantes sobre la conciencia autorial y explorar la relacion entre esta y la produccion de un nuevo concepto de "lectura" donde el lector es clave. Asimismo, demostrar que existen multiples niveles de sentido ligados a diferentes patrones y estructuras literarias que fueron transversales en los territorios ibericos y en las diferentes lenguas del territorio
