Abstract

Does this speech mean that so great is the distress of women over the banning of the guardainfante that young girls are taught to say the name (that is, as a sort of general lament of womankind) before they learn to say mamá and papà? Possibly so, but it would be safer to interpet it only as a reaffirmation of the great importance attached to the guardainfante by the women of the day, and implicitly, as a satire against women. Whether or no the name was suggested directly to Rojas by the prohibitory decrees, its use in two of his plays furnishes us with another clear instance of the Golden Age dramatists' sensitivity to the social currents of their period and their cleverness in exploiting contemporaneous interests to heighten the popular appeal of their conventionalized art. 10.Quoted by P. W. Bcmli, La Femme dans l'Espagne du Siècle d'Or (La Haye, 1950), p. 113. 11.See Ruth Lee Kennedy, "Certain Phases of the Sumptuary Decrees of 1623 and their Relations to Tirso's Theatre," Hispanic Review, X (1942), 91-115. 12.Published in the Colección de entremeses, loas, bailes, jácaras y mojigangas desde fines del siglo XVI a mediados del siglo XVIII, Vol.
