Overview

In a study that focuses on the communicative patterns of the mythological comedia, one must begin by talking about dialogues. The nine plays studied in this book - Adonis y Venus; Las mujeres sin hombres; El amor enamorado; El Aquiles; Dido y Eneas; La fiera, el rayo y la piedra; El laurel de Apolo; La estatua de Prometeo; and Amor es mas laberinto - explicitly establish dialogues among three historical periods: classical Greece and Rome, Golden Age Spain and Mexico, and contemporary Europe and North America. These dialogues express different world visions. If the expected cultural exchange takes place, then an enduring relationship of tolerance and understanding forms between the two worlds. Bonds that surpass temporal, geographic, and philosophical specificity attest to humankind's universal and atemporal need for myth. The questions, proposed answers, and subsequent revisions will, it is hoped, coexist in an ongoing dialogue among ancient, Golden Age, and contemporary individuals.
