Adaptación para los adolescentes o para adultos en un lenguaje más actual, sencillo y comprensible de La Comedia o Tragicomedia de Calisto y Melibea también llamada La Celestina, nombre por el que es más conocida, es una de las obras más importantes de la literatura española. Se asegura que la obra ha sido creada por dos autores distintos, aunque se ignora quien fue el autor del primer acto. El mismo Fernando de Rojas explica que se encontró en Salamanca un manuscrito del primer acto de esta obra y decidió continuarla para distraerse. Terminó hasta el dieciséis acto de Comedia de Calisto y Melibea, más tarde agregó hasta el acto veintiuno con el nombre de Tragicomedia de Calisto y Melibea.

La Celestina, figura central de la tragicomedia de Calixto y Melibea, se edita en la frontera de los siglos XV y XVI. El éxito de la obra fue inmenso, dado el número de ediciones y traducciones que de ella se hicieron, así como sus repercusión en otras obras posteriores. La Celestina se presenta con una estructura trágica, dramática, donde el amor como pasión irrefrenable es el motor que pone en marcha la obra.

Calisto fue de noble linaje, de claro ingenio, de gentil disposici�n, de linda crianza, dotado de muchas gracias, de estado mediano. Fue preso en el amor de Melibea, mujer moza, muy generosa, de alta y seren�sima sangre, sublimada en pr�spero estado, una sola heredera a su padre Pleberio y de su madre Alisa muy amada. Por solicitud del pungido Calisto, vencido el casto prop�sito de ella (interviniendo Celestina, mala y astuta mujer, con dos sirvientes del vencido Calisto, enga�ados y por �sta tornados desleales, presa su fidelidad con anzuelo de codicia y de deleite), vinieron los amantes y los que les ministraron, en amargo y desastrado fin. Para comienzo de lo cual dispuso la adversa fortuna lugar oportuno, donde a la presencia de Calisto se present� la deseada Melibea.

The racy and irreverent Spanish tragicomedy that is considered the first European novel-in a spirited new translation A Spanish Romeo and Juliet, Celestina was published in 1499 and became Spain's first-ever bestseller. Readers thrilled to the salty character of Celestina and her world of prostitutes and black magic even as they mourned the fate of Calisto and Melibea, the young lovers she unites using her wiles as a seller of perfumes and potions. Fernando de Rojas's exhilarating mix of street wit, obscenity, and cultured rhetoric mark Celestina as a masterpiece: an original, explosive, genre-defying work that paved the way for the picaresque novel and for Cervantes.

As a major piece of historical detective work. Stephen Gilman's ""La Celestina" and the Spain of Fernando de Rojas" adds a new dimension to critical studies of the fifteenth-century masterpiece. Using the text of "La Celestina" as well as public and private archives in Spain, Mr. Oilman builds up a vivid sense of the man behind the dialogue and establishes Fernando de Rojas indisputably as its author--a figure whom critics, while ranking his novel second only to "Don Quixote," have treated as semi-anonymous or non-existent. We cannot really know what the "Celestina" is, says Mr. Oilman, without speculating as rigorously and as learnedly as possible both on how it came to be and on how it "could" come to be. Thus he reconstructs the world of Rojas, country lawyer and "converso," the social, religious, and intellectual milieu of Salamanca, of Spain during the Inquisition, of the converted Jew. He makes it possible for us to see the author--the law student writing feverishly during a fortnight's vacation from classes--in the context of his own times and thus to understand Rojas' achievement: his unconventionality; his sardonic judgment of the Spain in which he lived; the explosive originality, in fact, of "La Celestina."

The 16th and 17th centuries were the most fruitful periods for Spanish literature. The Golden Age of Spanish drama extends from the close of the 15th century to the death of Calderon in 1681. During that time, Spanish playwrights looked to Italy for inspiration, but from the beginning they sought to avoid slavish imitation of classical and Italian drama. Instead, these playwrights attempted to give Spanish drama its own identity. This reference includes alphabetically arranged essays for 19 of the most important Spanish dramatists of the Golden Age. Each essay provides extensive biographical information, a critical discussion of the playwright's dramatic production, a critical analysis of one major play, and a bibliography of primary and secondary sources. The volume closes with a selected general bibliography on the most important drama of this period.

The Celestina is considered by scholars to be the first European novel. Written in fifteenth-century Spain, this masterpiece is remarkable for its originality, depth, handling of dialogue, and drawing of character. The novel's focus is the character of Celestina, who dominates the scene. An old bawd brimming with salty wisdom derived from a vigorous and sinful life, she is one of the great creations of all literature and holds a secure place beside her two compatriots, Don Quixote and Sancho Panza. This Spanish classic, the greatest of the forebears of Cervantes, was originally published anonymously, in 1499; later editions bear the name of Fernando de Rojas as author.

Published in 1499 and centered on the figure of a bawd and witch, Fernando de Rojas' dark and disturbing Celestina was destined to become the most suppressed classic in Spanish literary history. Routinely ignored in Spanish letters, the book nonetheless echoes through contemporary Spanish and Latin American literature. This is the phenomenon that Celestina's Brood explores. Roberto González Echevarría, one of the most eminent and influential critics of Hispanic literature writing today, uses Rojas' text as his starting point to offer an exploration of modernity in the Hispanic literary tradition, and of the Baroque as an expression of the modern. His analysis of Celestina reveals the relentless probing of the limits of language and morality that mark the work as the beginning of literary modernity in Spanish, and the start of a tradition distinguished by a penchant for the excesses of the Baroque. González Echevarría pursues this tradition and its meaning through the works of major figures such as Cervantes, Lope de Vega, Calderón de la Barca, Alejo Carpentier, Carlos Fuentes, Gabriel García Márquez, Nicolás Guillén, and Severo Sarduy, as well as through the works of lesser-known authors. By revealing continuities of the Baroque, Celestina's Brood cuts across conventional distinctions between Spanish and Latin American literary traditions to show their profound and previously unimagined affinity.
