Celestina - 59 edition

Celestina (ISBN10: 0936839015; ISBN13: 9780936839011)
ISBN13: 978-0936839011
ISBN10: 0936839015

Summary: 'As Greek tragedy,' says a Spanish writer, 'was composed from the crumbs that fell from Homer's table, so the Spanish drama owed its earliest forms to La Celestina (1499).' Fernando de Rojas' tragi-comedy - which has also been called 'a novel in dialogue' - runs to about three hundred pages in the James Mabbe translation, here adapted to the stage by Eric Bentley in a five-act, 93-page version. The central and pervasive situation is a simple one: a dirty old woman is
helping a courtly young gentleman to seduce a girl. The wonder of the thing lies in the art with which Fernando do Rojas derives, from such commonplace materials, a towering tragedy - or rather, tragi-comedy.
