By the time Cañadas finishes his discussion of any given drama, as in chapter 4 with Lope de Vega's El villano en su rincón (The Peasant in His Corner), the reader is likely to recognize that for Cañadas the terms ambiguity, hybridity, and polyphony are synonymous with subversion. Similarly, in his discussion of Peribañez y el Comendador de Ocaña, the eponymous peasant who slays the comendador or overlord is eventually "honored as a noble" (110, my emphasis).

In this comparative study of English and Spanish drama, the author concerns himself with theatrical conventions, the social significance of drama, and audience-reception in the early modern court-cities of London and Madrid. The primary focus of this study is the drama of Shakespeare and some of his contemporaries, particularly Thomas Dekker, in England, and the peasant honor plays of Lope de Vega in Spain. In engaging with these works, the study explores the representation of social conflict in the public drama of the two countries, and highlights the polyphonic appeal that the drama held for the mixed audiences of the public theatres, a communal phenomenon in which discourses of class, gender and race intersected. The author pays sustained attention to the intersections between gender and ideologies of rank, and how these produced a range of political effects in the plays he explores; the study incorporates innovative work on the role of carnival structures and gender bonding in creating pan-class communities. Cañadas provides not only literary analysis of individual plays, but also insight into the sociology of theatre as an institution.
