Cervantes and the Comic Mind of his Age

This chapter examines the implications of the socio-genetic and ideological factors that brought about the evolution of Spanish attitudes towards comic fiction for three Spanish writings published between 1596 and 1624. These writings include Alonso Lopez Pinciano's Philosophia antigua poetica, Gaspar Lucas Hidalgo's Dialogos and Tirso de Molina's Cigarrales de Toledo. This chapter suggests that these works were significantly influenced by the new comic ethos in terms of style and content.

Keywords:   Spanish fiction, comic fiction, socio-genetic factors, ideological factors, Philosophia antigua poetica, Dialogos, Cigarrales de Toledo, Alonso Lopez Pinciano, Gaspar Lucas Hidalgo
