Description

Dr. Conlon offers a superb selection of Renaissance Italian, Spanish, and Portuguese plays in translation, each accompanied by an introduction to the author and his works and their cultural milieu. These introductions are scholarly yet inviting, very effectively conveyed in an elegant prose style, endowed with fascinating detail and written with exuberance and flair. This anthology achieves a totality of vision of the Renaissance Mediterranean theater, its ideologies - artistic, religious, social and political - and its reach.
