At first glance, these attributes of novelized literature may not seem entirely unusual; in fact, they may appear quite ordinary regarding their application to re.

Approaches to the Structure of Cervantes”Comedias. Clearly, Cervantes had originally intended his plays to be performed on the stage and, therefore, conceived each work initially with this end in mind.

Three Entremeses Cervantinos

Apparently Cervantes retained control over the content of his collection until its publication, presumably submitting his authoritative version maravillax the printer as if it had been a collection of short stories. The novella, however, does not normally interact with the novel in any fundamental way.

Cervantes’ interludes, in contrast, are more complex and indeterminate.

The publication of his collected interludes mraavillas the end of the volume, separated mafavillas the text of his comedias and removed from the theatrical performance, extracts the interlude from its essential context, treating it more like a short story.

He must have thought his dramatic work, if not in demand for theatrical representation, would be suitable as a form of privatized, even didactic, entertainment for a discriminating reader. This entremes is also being performed by Eden Enterprises to provide educational opportunities for local schools.

The new hoax consists of the staging of an imagi- nary puppet show, fashioned by the celebrated and illusory Italian sage Tontonelo, which only pure Christians and those of legitimate birth will be able to see: Cervantes is best known and justifiably so as the father of the modern novel, who refashioned prose writing to such an extent that future generations of novelists would continue to follow his leads.

El retablo de las maravillas – Out of the Wings

Only after his comedias and entremeses had been deemed inappropriate for the stage did he sell his scripts to a bookseller with the intention of releasing them for the reading public.


The resulting works display a level of thematic profundity and structural complexity radically innovative in their time, and fully modern even when judged by the standards of the twentieth century. Nonetheless, Cervantes’ mastery of literary prose and its conventions may, in fact, be partially responsible for the alleged theatrical inadequacy of his dramatic work. At the same time, the student takes cover in a hayloft. Rather than the deferment of cultural authority and con- trol, this “gustoso aplauso” seems to have been Cervantes’s true goal,4 which, not coincidentally, matches Lope’s objective as spelled out six years earlier in his Arte nuevo de hacer comedias en este tiempo: Things become violent at the end when a newcomer tells the truth: Critics have pointed out the impunity of the two men at the end of the play, which stands in stark contrast to the mockery endured by the two women See Johnson 17 and Canavaggio Consequently, aspects of novelization can begin to manifest themselves in other genres anytime after the appearance of the modern novel, but they do not reach a significant level of importance -or canonical recognition- until much later.

Yet while the novelization of Cervantes’ drama appears to have been at least partially responsible for their rejection as theatrical scripts, the adoption of a more novelistic stance allowed them to be viewed as potentially successful and lucrative texts for reading.

Friedman has also pointed out this objective in Cervantes’s dramaturgy: Brevity in the novella, by contrast, seems to be a stylistic concern of the genre, not a practical problem defined by its position within another form of representation. Lane Cooper et al.

Tradition and Innovation in the Entremeses. What sets Retablo apart is pre- cisely the creative element of the social imaginary underscored by Castoriadis, the ability of the townspeople not only to witness the marvels of the puppet show, but also to create those “images that underlie these expectations” Taylor and, what is more, to take this ludic imaginary beyond the sl playing field.

The information contained within the theatrical piece must be understandable to the one-time theatre-goer, and a series of redundant theatrical codes helps the maraviplas to process the information correctly. Most important, as Bakhtin has suggested, is the openendedness of novelized literature. The women object to the demonic plan, fearful that the student is going to reveal the original deception of infidelity.


Spanish Literature Publications, Heteroglossia is visible in Cervantes’ entremesesjust as it is retabl in the Quijote. The redirection of his drama to the reading public may also explain, at least in part, why Cervantes’ novelistic innovations did not influence the subsequent development of the teatro menor in Naravillas. They depict that vicious circle of human relationships that James Joyce retahlo as “a commodius vicus of recirculation” 3.

Such, indeed, is the only possibility open to a genre that structures itself in a zone of direct contact with developing reality. Furthermore, the very act of printing his interludes retanlo an entirely new possibility for their reception which otherwise would have been impossible: Such questions have surrounded the interludes since their initial rejection alongside eight full-length plays by unnamed autores de comedias in the early ‘s.

Theatricality, as Elam suggests, can be defined by the need for stage contextualization, while retqblo novel relies entirely on the written word for imaginative interpretation by a reader.

As in Cueva and Juez, marriage is depicted in this piece as both play and war agona sense of this sacramental con- tract also pointed out by Huizinga in his study on play: Even when Cervantes chooses to include traditional, stereotyped characters in his works, he modifies them slightly, often using the type as an agent of novelistic theme. Maravillas characters, situations, and themes are just as vivid and fascinating in his drama as they are in his novels and short stories, and perhaps this is why his interludes were not seen as performable in This original entremes will be performed in Spanish.

The open-endedness may also help explain why Cervantes’ drama has enjoyed ehtremes success in the twentieth century, when one-act plays are either performed as independent, autonomous works or nearly always followed by an intermission if a series of one-acts is presented as part of one program.

Y las comedias tienen sus sazones y tiempos, como los cantares.
