Three Plays by Moreto and Their Adaptation in France


Hildegard Rissel

The purpose of this monograph is to analyze Agustín Moreto and Cabaña's dramatic production as one that shows influences of both neoclassical and baroque precepts. Moreto will thus be seen as a transitional playwright, a fact illustrated by the three plays studied. The analysis will further show that Moreto, due to his Neoclassical inclinations, was popular in France, and compared adaptations to the sources. Finally, the monograph will focus on the portrayal of the heroines and its implications for female roles.
