Prismatic Reflections on Spanish Golden Age Theater

Essays in Honor of Matthew D. Stroud


Edited By Gwyn E. Campbell and Amy R. Williamsen

This volume, organized in five major sections, honors the myriad scholarly contributions of Matthew D. Stroud to the field of Early Modern Spanish theater. Building upon Stroud’s seminal studies, each section of essays simultaneously claims and wrestles with aspects of the rich legacy generated by his explorations. The essays included in this volume consider the moral, ethical, and legal backdrop of uxoricide, explorations of the meaningful intersections of psychoanalytic theory and the comedia, and engage the topics of women, gender, and identity. They also bridge the gap between dramatist and actors and between page and stage as they consider everything from the physical demands on Early Modern actresses to the twenty-first-century performance possibilities of comedias. Moreover, these essays incorporate studies that transcend temporal, spatial, political, and cultural limits, continuing to push at the edges of traditional scholarship characteristic of Stroud’s pioneering research. Both scholars and students will find this cohesive, compelling collection of interest across a wide spectrum of disciplines from theater history to performance studies, from philosophy to queer studies.

En la que hablan las editoras

Every editing project requires multiple decisions. Throughout this process, we have tried to make information accessible to the specialist and the non-specialist alike. Thus, quotations from comedia texts are followed by English translations; any published translations used by the individual contributors are included in the references. If a specific translation is not referenced, that means that the authors supplied their own translations. Because of the metrical complexities of Spanish versification in the comedia, few of the translations attempt to capture the meaning within rhyming verse. Nonetheless, the division by virgules of the renditions in English prose roughly approximates the respective verse length in the original. The format that we have chosen to document verses quoted from the comedias strives to provide as much information as possible to facilitate finding the verses in the editions used and beyond. Thus, wherever feasible, we have indicated the details as follows: I.1203–05, 71; that is, Act [I], verse [1203–05], and page [71]; if no page number was readily available, as in the case of many electronic editions, we limit the citation to Act and verse [I.1203–05]. For editions lacking line numbers, the citations will read Act, page [I, 71]. An attempt has been made to standardize certain spellings and terms across all articles.
