Overview

Juan Rana, the most famous actor of the Spanish Golden Age, enjoyed a long and successful career from 1617 to 1672. Over fifty entremeses - interludes featured between the main acts of full-length plays - were written especially for him by some of the most important playwrights of the period. This bilingual and annotated edition of The Outrageous Juan Rana Entremeses translates a selection of the entremeses for the first time, highlighting their literary complexity and providing historical context for the many double meanings and innuendos they contain.

Rana's arrest for homosexuality in 1636 led him to play more gender bending, transvestite, and implicitly sexual roles. Many of his roles parody marriage, patriarchy, and heterocentric values while wrestling with issues of gender, sexual, and biological identity. As Peter E. Thompson ably demonstrates, these interludes challenge preconceived notions about society during the Spanish Golden Age by dealing with subject matter that remains extraordinarily relevant today.

Editorial Reviews

Monica Leoni
‘An illuminating scholarly contribution… The Outrageous Juan Rana opens the doors to offering new exciting, and probably, interdisciplinary courses that deal with not only theatre, but also with history, sexuality, and society. Thompson has done comedia students and scholars a great service by making available to us in both English & Spanish these intriguing and complex texts.‘
