Sample text

Though Aquinas does not speak specifically of the theatre but rather of ‘ludi’ [games], diversions and pastimes and ‘ioci’ [jests and jokes] in general, the tratadistas of seventeenth-century Spain showed no hesitation in applying his doctrines on this matter to the comedias performed in the corrales, as is apparent in the following quotation from Ribadeneyra’s Tratado de la tribulación: ‘Dice Santo Tomás [. 15 Perhaps as a result, much of the moral criticism levelled against the stage was not targeted on what it represented, but on the conduct of those who had made it their profession.

Where his characters relate their experiences in the corrales, they invariably do so in terms that give prominence to elements of folly, ignorance, scandal, lasciviousness and mercenary greed. The low moral tone of such accounts may be attributable to (or, conversely, may account for) the fact that they are commonly voiced by the gracioso. 40 This is expressed as a gluttonous gastronomic conceit which only seems to corroborate Ferrer’s comment that: ‘los teatros están dedicados a Baco [. ] y así se puede decir con verdad lo de Tertuliano, que estos dos demonios, Venus y Baco, se han confederado y conjurado [.

Cervantes touches on this question in Don Quijote I. 38 That this was also an issue which concerned Alarcón is evident from the prefaces to both Partes of his plays, in which he emphasises the conflict between his own aims as a playwright and the tastes of the majority of his audience. In a preface addressed to the vulgo in his Parte primera, Alarcón’s expression of this conflict is couched in uncompromising terms: Contigo hablo, bestia fiera, que con la nobleza no es menester, que ella se dicta más que yo sabría: Allá van esas comedias, trátalas como sueles, no como es justo, sino como es gusto, que ellas te miran con desprecio, y sin temor, como las que pasaron ya el peligro de tus silbos, y ahora pueden solo pasar el de tus rincones.
