Synopses & Reviews
This anthology of plays from the Spanish Golden Age brings together the work of canonical writers, female writers who are rapidly achieving canonical status, and lesser-known writers who have recently gained critical attention. It contains the full text of fifteen plays; an introduction to each play with information about the author, the work, performance issues, and current criticism; and glosses with definitions of difficult words and concepts. The extensive bibliography provides opportunities for further research.
and#8220;This anthology is an important, perhaps even unique, contribution to the field. To have an anthology with an expanded text list, that includes a wider variety of texts, and that places them in a more current critical context, is invaluable.and#8221;and#8212;Matthew Stroud, Trinity University
and#8220;Dr. Mujica has respected the authors of the canon and has also included female dramaturges that have been neglected for a long time. Most anthologies present the works as text only, but here Dr. Mujica comments on the plays not only as text but also as theatrical performance.and#8221;and#8212;Angel Sand#225;nchez, Arizona State University
