This play was written by Fernando Rojas in the year 1499. It is a wonderful play about love and tragedy. Calisto fell in love with Melibea who was a beautiful young woman who would inherit a great fortune from her father. Calisto was rich and paid Celestina, an old astute witch of a woman, money so she could make Melibea love him.
Calistos servants, Sempronio and Parmoneo were in cohuts with Celestina but she kept all the gold for herself. When she defaulted on her deal Sempronio kills her.
