0 Reviews
La carrera teatral cervantina entraña la historia de un fracaso estrepitoso, aunque sólo sea porque el grueso de su producción no fue nunca representado. De todos esos títulos, Castalia edita El rufián dichoso que supuso, por el tema -un rufián que acaba enterrado en olor de santidad-, el mayor desafío dramático al que Cervantes hubo de enfrentarse.Basada en la edición príncipe de 1615, en la presente se han actualizado grafía y ortografía, pero se han respetado los rasgos propios de la lengua clásica: vacilaciones vocálicas, concordancias anómalas, regímenes preposicionales, registros de germanía. Las notas tratan de las cuestiones más diversas: textuales, léxicas, costumbristas, históricas y sólo persiguen clarificar el texto.

About the author (1997)

Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra, born in Alcala de Henares, Spain, in 1547, was the son of a surgeon. In 1585, a few months after his marriage to Catalina de Salazar, Cervantes published his first major work as an author, the pastoral novel La Galatea which was poorly received. Cervantes became a tax collector in Granada in 1594, but was imprisoned in 1597 due to money problems with the government. Folklore maintains that while in prison, Cervantes wrote his most famous novel, Don Quixote, which was an immediate success upon publication in 1605. After several years of writing short novels and plays, Cervantes was spurred to write the sequel to Don Quixote in 1615 when an unauthorized sequel appeared to great acclaim. Don Quixote is considered the defining Spanish literary contribution. It is humorous, bawdy, and human, pitting one man's loyalty to tradition and faith against the world's harsh progress. Though Cervantes' sequel was rushed and flawed, Don Quixote remains a powerful symbol that has endured to present times in many forms. Cervantes died on April 22, 1616, at the age of 69.
