9788479544928: La Celestina (Clasicos Libertarias) (Spanish Edition)

"As Greek tragedy," says a Spanish writer, "was composed from the crumbs that fell from Homer's table, so the Spanish drama owed its earliest forms to La Celestina (1499)." Fernando de Rojas' tragi-comedy - which has also been called "a novel in dialogue" - runs to about three hundred pages in the James Mabbe translation, here adapted to the stage by Eric Bentley in a five-act, 93-page version. The central and pervasive situation is a simple one: a dirty old woman is helping a courtly young gentleman to seduce a girl. The wonder of the thing lies in the art with which Fernando do Rojas derives, from such commonplace materials, a towering tragedy - or rather, tragi-comedy.

Product Description:

La Celestina es considerada, después del Quijote, como la cima más alta de la literatura española.

La Celestina es la dramática historia de amor de estos jóvenes. Celestina es quien se encarga de unir a la pareja, pero sus intereses y los de sus ayudantes están puestos en los beneficios que conseguirán y no en la felicidad de la pareja. Con todos los enredos de la historia, un final trágico se precipita sobre los amantes.

From the Publisher:

A classic in Spanish literature.
