New book on Golden Age Drama in Contemporary Spain

9 December 2010

Coming soon from the University of Wales Press:

Golden Age Drama in Contemporary Spain: The Comedia on Page, Stage and Screen

Duncan Wheeler

This is the first book dedicated to the performance and reception of sixteenth and seventeenth century national drama in contemporary Spain. It contextualises the socio-historical background to productions of works by the country’s three major Spanish baroque playwrights (Calderón de la Barca, Lope de Vega and Tirso de Molina), whilst also providing detailed, accessible and jargon-free aesthetic analyses of individual stage and screen adaptations. Plot summaries of each of the plays discussed are included, and the extensive bibliography will provide an essential resource for academics, practitioners and students alike.
