This volume seeks to offer the basis for further study of the Spanish seventeenth century playwright, poet, and prose writer Luis Vélez de Guevara, whose literary and historical weight have yet to be fully determined. While Guevara was an idol of the popular theatre scene in his day, and garnered praise from the most lofty of his contemporaries, the centuries have seen him diminished in stature to a second rate writer. To the purpose of furthering the resuscitation of this gem of the Golden Age, Mary Hauer’s bibliography includes treatments of Guevara by his contemporaries--Cervantes, Lope de Vega, Quevedo, Montalbán, Claramonte, and others--as well as those published through the eighteenth, nineteenth, and twentieth centuries.
