Synopsis: "Las mocedades del Cid" es la obra más notable de Guillén de Castro. "Le Cid", de Corneille, es una imitación suya muy inferior en calidad literaria, según Schack. “Los conocidos y populares romances del Cid son el fundamento de Las mocedades, y en parte se han entretejido en el diálogo con grande habilidad. Pero el motivo, que forma el interés capital del drama; la lucha entre el amor y el honor, parece son de la propia y original invención de Guillén de Castro: los romances, en efecto, no hablan del amor anterior del Cid á Ximena.”

About the Author: Guillén de Castro y Bellvís (Valencia, 1569-Madrid, 1631). España. Fue capitán de caballería, gobernador de Scigliano en Nápoles y en Madrid secretario del marqués de Peñafiel. Muy cercano a Lope de Vega, formó parte de la Academia de los nocturnos, la única academia que publicó en actas los poemas discutidos durante sus reuniones semanales y que radicó en Valencia entre 1591 y 1593. Murió en la pobreza y un tanto olvidado.

Book Description Ed. EBRO, S L, Zaragoza Espana (spain), 1970. Softcover. Condition: Very Good. Marfree, acidfree earlier 8a edicion, ilustrada c/ crono y biblio; no names, not marked-in, underscored, clearance or discard. Mails from NYC usually within 12 hours. ; 9.5 x 6.1 x 1 inches; 136 pages; action movie from the Spanish golden age, July 31, 2001 \nBy Bálint Hancz (Hungary) -\nCorneille borrowed many ideas from Spanish authors, and his most famous work, Cid is also a rewriting of the play by Guillén de Castro, Las mocedades del Cid. However, like Spanish plays in general, this work does not follow the rule of the three units. The emphasis is more on the eventful action than on the Cid's conflict between honour and love. But, although not respecting the traditions, in Castro's plays Cid's doubts are psychologically more plausible because he is not confined to making a decision in some hours, and the conflicts are more complex than in Corneille's work as the number of characters is much more bigger. Moreover, the stress here is not on conflicts of conscience, but on an animated action. This can also be understood because Cid is Spain's national hero so the author is expected not to miss one opportunity to include some motifs from traditional Spanish romances to please the audience of his time. This way, the play is more similar to an action movie than to a psychological drama, although the most exciting scenes of course occur outside the stage. The audience gets to see only the reactions from the other characters, which might not please those who are in for explicit violence. The play also differs from Lope de Vega's honour plays, there are no violated virgins here, the theme of honour moves on another level. Also Lope was a much better dramaturgist, the building of tension whether the honour will be revenged or not here gets lost among the list of Cid's heroic deeds. It is more like a staged national myth, more epic than dramatic, better to be read than to be seen on a stage. Seller Inventory # 21192
