Fernan Mendez Pinto

Comedia Famosa en dos Partes

The editors of this volume, who have perfected the basic text and corrected printing and metrical defects, emphasize the play’s debt to the Portuguese adventurer Fernão Mendes Pinto whose prose epic (the Peregrinaçam) on the Portuguese presence in South, East and Insular Asia inspired the Spanish work. Their introductory studies explain the play’s understandable yet false attribution to Lope de Vega and prove authorship by Antonio Enriquez Gomez, peninsular exile and ultimate victim of the Spanish Inquisition.

Speaking with SpeakOut Boston

We continue our celebration of Pride Month by talking with some of the speakers who volunteer with SpeakOUT Boston. They share their stories with a variety of audiences to foster a better understanding of the LGBTQ+ community, so we thought we’d ask them some questions of our own.
