Overview

Juan Pérez de Montalbán mezcló elementos de la tradición teatral con episodios de la vida de fray Pedro de Alcántara, de quien se dice que dormía muy poco; que andaba siempre descalzo y apenas se alimentaba.
Aquí se relatan algunos de los milagros atribuidos al santo. En una ocasión yendo de Alcántara al pueblo de La Zarza con un fraile, éste al ver que habría mal tiempo le aconsejó que volviesen. Pedro insistió en continuar y, aunque cayó un autentico diluvio, no se mojaron. (En la obra Montalbán adapta este suceso a sus intenciones cómicas haciendo que Espeso, el personaje cómico, se moje y le pida al santo que cambien de traje.)

Meet the Author

Juan Pérez de Montalbán (Madrid, 1602-1638). España
Juan era hijo del librero real que editó el Buscón de Quevedo sin la anuencia de éste. Sus antepasados eran judíos conversos. Estudió teología y se ordenó sacerdote a los dieciocho años, deviniendo notario de la Inquisición. A los diecinueve años escribió su primera comedia. Fue el discípulo predilecto de Lope de Vega y adversario de Francisco de Quevedo, que lo ridiculizó varias veces en sus obras.
Escribió unas cincuenta obras teatrales de diversos géneros. A la muerte de Lope de Vega compuso la Fama póstuma (1636), elogio y primera biografía de Lope.
Murió sumido en la locura.
