Excerpt

The present booklet is a revision of the author's doctoral dissertation, which consisted of analyses, from the point of view of presentation, of available plays in Spanish and Portuguese from the period 1492 to 1555, with summaries of the findings. To conserve space only the more representative plays, as judged from our viewpoint, have been discussed in full. Quotations, which comprised about one half of the original dissertation, have been greatly reduced in number. An effort has been made, then, to present significant findings and to suppress minor detail

To Professor Ralph E. House thanks are due for suggesting the subject of the study, for invaluable direction and encouragement during its preparation, and for the generous loan of rare books from his library; to Professors Hayward Keniston, Walter L. Bullock, and William S. Hendrix for assistance in locating materials, or volumes long out of print; to librarians at the University of Iowa , the University of Chicago, and Lake Forest College for coöperation in securing books difficult of access.
