About this Item

8°, original printed wrappers (spine slightly worn at head and foot). In good to very good condition. Signature on title-page. 255 pp., with color illustrations (showing the sets) tipped to 4 pages. *** FIRST EDITION of the first play by the dominant Portuguese dramatist of the period between the First and Second World Wars. "Representada a primeira vez no Theatro Nacional Almeida Garrett, em março de 1921" [with cast list]--p. [4]. The four color illustrations depict sets from the original stage production tipped in. "Uma capa original de Alice Rey Collaço" (p. 12). Zilda is a psychological drama set in a working-class household; judging from the review laid into this copy, it was widely denounced as immoral when first performed.Cortez (or Cortês, as the some pedantic present-day cataloguers would have it; 1880-1946), a lawyer with a degree from Coimbra University, is described by Rebello as "figura cimeira da dramaturgia portuguesa . a sua obra, de expressão rigorosa e linear, quase ascética, acusa um perfeito domínio da técnica teatral, uma análise impiedosa dos costumes da sociedade sua contemporânea e uma profunda compreensão anímica do povo português." His second drama, O Lôdo, was set in a Lisbon brothel; all the Lisbon theaters refused to put it on, and he finally produced the play under his own initiative in July 1923. It later ran in a major Lisbon theater and throughout Portugal.*** Rebello, 100 anos de teatro portugues pp. 64-65. Saraiva & Lopes, História da literatura portuguesa (1976) p. 1172.
