La dama duende

3.61  ·  Rating Details  ·  152 Ratings  ·  7 Reviews
Esta obra es el prototipo y la mas alabada de las comedias de "capa y espada" de Calderon. El manejo habil de la intriga y el enredo, en este caso llevados a cabo por una dama audaz, confiere a la obra una comicidad fresca y un pretexto para la satira de costumbres, entre ellas, la creencia en supersticiones.
Paperback, 165 pages
Published January 1st 1998 by Catedra (first published 1629)

Una comedia de enredo muy sencilla en apariencia, con parlamentos amorosos elaborados y barrocos, referencias a las novelas de caballerías y graciosa. La gracia se consigue por la astucia de la dama duende y por el contraste entre el ilustrado caballero don Manuel y su ignorante criado Cosme. Un procedimiento de humor que ya se usaba en El Quijote pero que seguía y aún sigue siendo eficaz.

The Phantom Lady by Pedro Calderon de la Barca
Everybody loves comedies. I am not sure if everyone will love this one

The Phantom Lady is a comedy; therefore you and I should love it.
I do not know about you, but I am not so thrilled by this play.
You may stop reading from here on, for I do not think I will reveal any worthy information regarding The Phantom Lady.
Since I did not engage with it at the start, I kind of lost track of who is pursuing who.
- Why do they hide and come from behind the clos

Oh, lord. It was as terrible as I expected.

This has been the funniest play we have read in my Renaissance drama class. What do you get when you put a desperate young widow, two protective brothers, a sly female cousin, a handsome new man in town, and two hysterical clowns under one roof and throw in a secret passage for fun? Lots of laughs and some great one liners! I highly recommend this play to everyone.

I used this play for my project in Spanish Literature and designed costumes for many of the characters in it. Angela especially intrigued me because she is simultaneously in control of her situation and trapped in the gilded cage of her brother's demands and the cultural expectations of a young widow.

me encanto la idea de como busca comunicarse con don manuel , y arriesgarse a pesar de saber lo que pasara con sus hermanos
aunque también lo veo , como que ella piensa en el como una salida de su encierro , de la posesión de sus hermanos , de esa vida de encierro

Pedro Calderón de la Barca y Henao was a dramatist of the Spanish Golden Age.

Calderón initiated what has been called the second cycle of Spanish Golden Age theatre.
