Esta obra de Moratín, hace en su momento una clara y lúcida denuncia de una educación femenina que se comprende sólo como freno; y peor aún, freno solo del límite externo del cuerpo. Una educación represiva que olvida la vida, sepultada por las formas del decoro y la sumisión al poder. La historia, bien contada y de buen estilo, falta quizás un tanto en su verosimilitud, personajes y escenas poco creíbles, psicologías arquetípicas... pero todo al servicio de una obra honesta y fértil en su ...more

When I was in high school, they gave us several books that, supposedly, we were going to read throughout the year. We read most of them, but it turned out we were left with one or two that we didn't have enough time to read. I kept mine, truly without much intention of reading them because they weren't particularly appealing. But a little while ago I remembered I had them and, after thinking it a while, I decided I lost nothing by reading them. If they wanted us to read them in school, they were ...more

Dos obras muy conocidas y de obligado estudio conforman este libro: La Comedia Nueva y El Sí de las Niñas. Dos obras de gran importancia en la época que nos sumergen, respectivamente, en los panoramas teatral (criticando a los malos escritores de comedias) y social (haciendo lo mismo con los convencionalismos sociales).

Personalmente me han resultado algo aburridas, que no difíciles. Especialmente la obra ya tan requetearchiestudiada El Sí de las Niñas. Posturas mías aparte, ambas obras no han pe

Comedias de enredos al estilo neoclásico, contienen algunas frases y momentos bastante graciosos, aunque la mayor parte del dialogo mas bien se enfoque en la construcción de la trama, mas que en el aspecto propiamente cómico. Moratín fue uno de los grandes autores teatrales neoclásicos, y se apegaba de manera dogmática a los preceptos aristotélicos de las unidades de acción, tiempo y espacio. En la segunda obra del volumen, "La comedia nueva" declara su desdén hacia los que rompen con ellas, y ...more

We had to read this play for my Spanish Literature class. For the most part it was easy to follow. It was very predictable, but that also has to do with the time period it was written in. There's a nice speech at the end given by Don Diego about girls and their inability to express their thoughts and emotions freely. Their "education" has been to sit quietly, to obey everyone else, and to not show emotion. Don Diego questions this "education," which then leads to a happy ending.

Not the biggest Moratin fan. He's the great champion of Neoclassical theater, and I dislike how straightforward and moralizing he is. He makes a valid point (people shouldn't try to make art simply to make money) but the characters annoyed me.

La verdad es que los literatos españoles del siglo XVIII y principios del XIX lo tenían muy difícil, y más si intentaban separarse de los modelos del Siglo de Oro. Las dos comedias funcionan, pero no pasan de ser comedias ligeras.

Moratín was born in Madrid the son of Nicolás Fernández de Moratín, a major literary reformer in Spain from 1762 until his death in 1780.

Distrusting the teaching offered in Spain's universities at the time, Leandro grew up in the rich literary environment of his father and became an admirer of Enlightenment thought. In addition to translating works of Molière and William Shakespeare into Spanish,
