Most widely held works by Hymen Alpern
Diez comedias del siglo de oro : an annotated omnibus of ten complete plays by the most representative Spanish dramatists of the golden age by Hymen Alpern( Book )

20 editions published between 1939 and 1985 in English and Spanish and held by 1,379 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is an omnibus volume comprising ten of the best-known plays of the most representative Spanish dramatists of the Golden Age. The publication of this collection seems to be justifiable not only because each play has intrinsic literary merit, but also because there is no other similar anthology, and the individual plays are not readily obtainable and are expensive. Furthermore, the growing publication of omnibus volumes for the study of a foreign language and literature is a modern and popular trend in response to the recommendations of the Modern Foreign Language Study to combine in a single book the hundreds of pages of reading matter needed in a course. - Preface

The story is set in 1848, and the scene is in Madrid. At that period there was a revival of democratic impulses in the world, on account of what was going on in France. But the unorganized many-headed masses could make only a poor showing against the organized powers of even a contemptible government. The hero and heroine of the story are of two hostile parties, a thing that often occurs in life as well as in literature
