This is the first book to translate and scrutinize "The Tragedy of Caldesa" by Joan Rois de Corella in English. This monograph on Joan Rois de Corella (1435-1497) offers to the English-speaking world the discovery of a prominent literary figure, worth of recognition as a leading exponent of the Renaissance in the Catalan domain. The book intends to bring into focus Corella's distinctive contribution as embodied in a work that bears the title of "Tragedia de Caldesa" ("Tragedy of Caldesa"). Contrary to the trend of criticism that flatly denies the stage-worthy qualities of this magnificent text, the author proposes that Corella's masterpiece constitutes a full-fledged theatricalization of a form of tragedy that stems not from Aristotlean principles, but from the work of Isidore of Seville. Corella delves into a radically conflictive interaction of male and female characters.
