About this title:
Synopsis:
One of the best–loved Spanish novels of all time, The Three-Cornered Hat is a hilarious tale of lust, intrigue, and corruption set in 18th-century Andalusia. The musical compositions inspired by this masterpiece have become staples of both the ballet and orchestral repertoires. When the hideous and lascivious corregidor Don Eugenio takes a fancy to the formidable—and formidably desirable—Señora Frasquita, the wife of the local miller, the couple sets about foiling his plans for a seduction. There ensues a fast-paced comedy of moonlight flits, clothes swapping, mistaken identity, and slapstick mishaps as the characters struggle in vain to maintain both dignity and marital harmony. Calm is eventually restored in a scene of unmasking and mutual forgiveness of truly operatic proportions. Pedro Alarcón is one of Spain’s most prominent writers. He is chiefly remembered for his subtly ironic plots and quintessentially Spanish settings and characterizations.

From the Publisher:
Hesperus Press, as suggested by their Latin motto, Et remotissima prope, is dedicated to bringing near what is far—far both in space and time. Works by illustrious authors, often unjustly neglected or simply little known in the English–speaking world, are made accessible through a completely fresh editorial approach and new translations.

Through these classic works, which feature forewords by leading contemporary authors, the modern reader will be introduced to the greatest writers of Europe and America. An elegantly designed series of genuine rediscoveries.

Book Description: Hesperus. 1 Paperback(s), 2004. soft. Book Condition: New. When the grotesque and lascivious magistrate Don Eugenio takes a fancy to Señora Frasquita, the miller's wife, confusion and hilarity ensue, in this 1874 send-up of traditional Spanish ballads by Pedro Antonio de Alarcón. Frasquita and the miller decide to play a trick on the insufferable Don Eugenio, but in the hijinks that follow—including clothes-swapping, mistaken identities, a false arrest, and a bit of slapstick—will any of these people be able to maintain their dignity?
