The reflection of moral-didactic concerns and of ethical values in literature is seen in all of the major literary genres of the Spanish Golden Age and in particular in the comedia of the time, as the present book written by Hilaire Kallendorf brilliantly demonstrates. The experience of seeing Lope’s La dama boba performed in Bath, UK, as part of the Ustinov Studio’s Spanish Golden Age Season informs this examination of the translation and adaptation of the classics, both in print and for the stage.

Thompson, Peter E. Toronto: University of Toronto Press, 2006. 183 pp. THOMPSON'S historically, theoretically, and textually grounded study of Juan Rana is a much-needed contribution to a growing body of scholarship on gender and sexuality in Spanish Golden Age short theatre. Juan Rana, the alias of Cosmo Pérez, a popular actor between the years 1617 and 1672, was crowned by Pedro Calderón de la Barca as el máximo gracioso and also became the subject of over fifty short plays during the seventeenth century.

In The Triumphant Juan Rana, Peter E. Thompson challenges many preconceived ideas about the Spanish Golden Age and fills an existing void in queer studies of this important period in European theatrical and literary history.

Juan Rana was the most famous buffoon of his time. An actor working during the years 1617-1672, he achieved a status similar to that of the Italian Harlequin and was a favourite of the ruling monarchy and the general populace. Over fifty short plays were written especially for Rana by some of the most important playwrights of the day, including Pedro Calderón de la Barca, who crowned Rana the most famous gracioso of the baroque era.
