This volume examines the Commedia dell'Arte as it formed a key element in the work of well-known writers such as Valle-Inclan and Garcia Lorca, as well as that of many other poets, playwrights and dramatic theorists in 19th- and 20th-century Hispanic literature. It analyzes thematically the development of the Commedia, its links with other theatrical and paratheatrical forms such as pantomime, circus and carnival. The book contains original analyses of Hispanic texts, and should be of interest to specialists in Hispanic literature. In addition, the text provides students of theatre history an Hispanic dimension to Commedia studies. The reader's understanding should be enhanced by the inclusion of original translations of the quotations from the Hispanic texts studied.
