Abstract

On the Trecena parte de comedias (1620), Lope takes theoretical control of his theater after the Arte Nuevo; he feels supported, both tacitly and explicitly by other texts related or adjoined (parts XIII-XX) and by the Spanish Tradition. But, he also feels supported by Virgil, who defends the humble, although overcoming Theocritus's bucolism; by Horace, who advocates for the mixture exposed in the Arte nuevo, or by Quintilian, who condemns the combination of ethos and pathos, the disguise of feelings, as recommended by XVIth century's humanists, headed by Castiglione, and followed by Sannazaro. Besides Neapolitan, among the modern authors, Lope also bears in mind other authors such as Tasso and the Ariosto of the Satires.
