Abstract

Rojas seems to Areúsa to attribute two different papers in the work. In the Comedy he presents it as the friend of a military man with the one that lives together in a regimen of concubinage allowed by the law and that was the most similar thing to the marriage. In the Tragicomedy, on the other hand, he turns her into a clandestine prostitute who takes part of the corruption of the justice to make and to undo to her whim. In five interpolated cars he ends up by granting her a function very similar to the one that had had the deceased Celestina.
