Tamayo y Baus' (1829-1898) "The Right Track" (1862) is a product of the social context of nineteenth-century Spain. This book is a translation from Spanish to English. The comedy is typical of the alta comedia [high comedy]: it is a didactic work that hopes to offer the bourgeois a model of virtue. As a genre, the high comedy supplanted the symbolism and declamation of romantic drama with a 'realistic' portrayal of the moral dilemmas faced by the growing middle class. The climax and resolution of "The Right Track" support what Tamayo understood to be traditional Spanish values.
