"Desde su publicación en Bogotá, en 1867 ... sigue siendo una de las novelas más leídas en Hispanoamérica. Esencialmente romántica, tiene, sin embargo, elementos realistas y costumbristas que evidencian el interés de su autor por el habla popular"--Page 4 of cover

Peribáñez and the comendador of Ocaña by Lope de Vega( Book )

14 editions published between 1997 and 2002 in Spanish and held by 166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"En la epoca en que redacta Peribanez, Lope tiende todavia a desparramar la accion, escribe un teatro casi epico, que muestra ante el espectador todos los pasos de la peripecia dramatica. Aunque ya domina la unidad de accion, todavia no es capaz de concentrar el argumento y reducirlo a las situaciones imprescindibles.Quiza el encanto de este ciclo del teatro lopesco sea su forma de narrar la accion de modo liso y llano, sin grandes preocupaciones estructurales. Gracias a ello nos puede ofrecer escenas deliciosas, aunque marginales,como el eco de la fiesta con el novillo enmaromado, la escena en que los labradores cantan el trebole o la junta que celebra la cofradia de San Roque en Ocana."--Amazon

Félix Lope de Vega y Carpio (Madrid, 1562--Madrid, 1635). España. Nació en una familia modesta, estudió con los jesuitas y no terminó la universidad en Alcalá de Henares, parece que por asuntos amorosos. Tras su ruptura con Elena Osorio (Filis en sus poemas), su gran amor de juventud, Lope escribió libelos contra la familia de ésta. Por ello fue procesado y desterrado en 1588, año en que se casó con Isabel de Urbina (Belisa). Pasó los dos primeros años en Valencia, y luego en Alba de Tormes, al servicio del duque de Alba. En 1594, tras fallecer su esposa y su hija, fue perdonado y volvió a Madrid. Allí tuvo una relación amorosa con una actriz, Micaela Luján (Camila Lucinda) con la que tuvo mucha descendencia, hecho que no impidió su segundo matrimonio, con Juana Guardo, del que nacieron dos hijos. Entonces era uno de los autores más populares y aclamados de la Corte. En 1605 entró al servicio del duque de Sessa como secretario, aunque también actuó como intermediario amoroso de éste. La desgracia marcó sus últimos años: Marta de Nevares una de sus últimas amantes quedó ciega en 1625, perdió la razón y murió en 1632. También murió su hijo Lope Félix. La soledad, el sufrimiento, la enfermedad, o los problemas económicos no le impidieron escribir

The surgeon of his honour by Pedro Calderón de la Barca( Book )

6 editions published in 2007 in Spanish and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Physician of His Honour, written by Pedro Calderon de la Barca in Spain around 1630, has always been controversial. In 1881, the great don of nineteenth-century Spanish letters, Marcelino Menendez y Pelayo, declared it (and by association its author), 'radically immoral'. There has never been disagreement, though, about the brilliance of the playwright, and different generations have found different ways of explaining the text and imagining its performance." "The drama is set in fourteenth-century Seville. The main characters are a nobleman (Don Gutierre) and his wife (Dona Mencia); his former love interest; a Moorish servant; a branded slave; and a bloodletter. Key players are the historical King Pedro of Castile and his bastard half-brother Prince Enrique. These two eventually fought each other in a civil war whose grim denouement (memorialized by Chaucer in The Monk's Tale) is foreshadowed by events in The Physician of His Honour."--BOOK JACKET
