This anthology of plays from the Spanish Golden Age brings together the work of canonical writers, female writers who are rapidly achieving canonical status, and lesser-known writers who have recently gained critical attention. It contains the full text of fifteen plays; an introduction to each play with information about the author, the work, performance issues, and current criticism; and glosses with definitions of difficult words and concepts. The extensive bibliography provides opportunities for further research.

Praise For A New Anthology of Early Modern Spanish Theater: Play and Playtext

“This anthology is an important, perhaps even unique, contribution to the field. To have an anthology with an expanded text list, that includes a wider variety of texts, and that places them in a more current critical context, is invaluable.”—Matthew Stroud, Trinity University

“Dr. Mujica has respected the authors of the canon and has also included female dramaturges that have been neglected for a long time. Most anthologies present the works as text only, but here Dr. Mujica comments on the plays not only as text but also as theatrical performance.”—Angel Sánchez, Arizona State University
