Editorial Reviews

PRI's The World

“The new translation by Margaret Sayers Peden serves up the freshness and naughtiness of the text while inviting a new generation of readers into the rich melodrama of a book that, although it is a classic, draws readers in not ‘because it is good for them,’ but rather because it is fun.” —Monica Szurmuk, PRI’s “The World”

“This edition of Roja’s Celestina wins, to use baseball parlance, the triple crown. . . . a fresh, vibrant translation.”—Choice

 

Edith Grossman
“A new English version of Celestina—a surprisingly modern Spanish masterpiece of the Renaissance—by an accomplished American translator. What a treat for readers!”—Edith Grossman, translator of Don Quixote

Winner of the 2010 Lewis Galantiere Award sponsored by the American Translators Association.
Frederick A. de Armas
"Celestina is an immensely difficult text to translate and Margaret Sayers Peden does not disappoint. She delivers the most thoughtful and incisive translation to date, with a text that seems to echo the minds and feelings of these beguiling characters from fifteenth century Salamanca. Full of wit and pathos, longing and laughter, readers will be enthralled by the nuanced tones of this new rendering. A brilliant tour de force accompanied by an elegant, intelligent and enlightening Introduction by Roberto González Echevarría. González Echevarría’s notion of broken bodies as pieces of a Picasso painting/puzzle will resonate with us for a long time."—Frederick A. de Armas, University of Chicago
Edward H. Friedman
"Margaret Sayers Peden offers a faithful, elegant, and eminently readable translation of Celestina. She does not call attention to the act of translation but combines her art with that of Rojas. Roberto González Echevarría provides a brief but rich introduction."—Edward H. Friedman, Vanderbilt University

Meet the Author

Fernando de Rojas  fue un dramaturgo español del siglo XVI. Bien considerado por sus conciudadanos, ejerció como alcalde mayor de Talavera en 1538. En 1541 moría después de haber pasado la mayor parte de su existencia en el más silencioso apartamiento de la vida literaria y después de escribir su obra cumbre, Celestina, considerada una obra clave de la historia de la literatura española y la más importante sin duda en la transición entre la Edad Media y el Renacimiento.
