Fernan Mendez Pinto: Comedia Famosa en dos Partes
by Antonio Enríquez Gómez
Harvard University Press, 1974
Cloth: 978-0-674-29875-0
Library of Congress Classification PQ6388.E5F4 1974

The editors of this volume, who have perfected the basic text and corrected printing and metrical defects, emphasize the play’s debt to the Portuguese adventurer Fernão Mendes Pinto whose prose epic (the Peregrinaçam) on the Portuguese presence in South, East, and Insular Asia inspired the Spanish work. Their introductory studies explain the play’s understandable yet false attribution to Lope de Vega and prove authorship by Antonio Enríquez Gómez, peninsular exile and ultimate victim of the Spanish Inquisition.
