9780856683459: Celestina by Fernando Rojas (c. 1465-1541) (Hispanic Classics)

Celestina is the most remarkable work produced in 15th century Spain and its influence has been enduring and profound. It is a prose dialogue divided into 21 'acts', starting in comedy and ending in tragedy. The main trigger of events is the passion conceived by the youth Calisto for the inexperienced Melibea. The ubiquitous, scheming, shrewd old hag Celestina attempts to exploit the emotions of the young people in scenes ranging from bedroom to brothel. The heightening tension eventually explodes in disaster for everyone. This complete and lavish edition brings both to students and the general public a masterpiece whose impostance in European literature is undisputed. Spanish text with facing-page translation, introduction and notes.
