Lope, Reader of Jorge Ferreira de Vasconcelos

Pereira, Silvina
This work takes as its starting point Eugenio Asensio’s affirmation that the greatest admirer of Jorge Ferreira de Vasconcelos and his comedies would have been Lope de Vega. He attempts to prove this thesis by pointing out the similarities between the Eufrosina (1555) and Lope’s La Dorotea (1632) and, to a certain extent, even the Aulegrafia (1619). Other points of contact between the lives and works of these two great figures of the Iberian theater are also considered, in order to understand how Lope de Vega processed his reception of the works of the Portuguese comedy writer of the sixteenth century
