The Three-Cornered Hat (Hesperus Classics)

Pedro Antonio De Alarcón Author

9781843910800: The Three-Cornered Hat (Hesperus Classics)

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.

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? The basis for Manuel de Falla's 1919 ballet by the same name, this influential novel is one of the best-loved Spanish classics of the 19th century. 100. Bookseller Inventory # 50405
