About this product
- DescriptionOne of the best-loved Spanish vels of all time, The Three-Cornered Hat is a hilarious tale of lust, intrigue and corrupt authorities set in eighteenth-century Andalusia. When the hideous and lascivious corregidor Don Eugenio takes a fancy to the formidable - and formidably desirable - Sera Frasquita, the wife of a local miller, the couple set about foiling his plans for a seduction. There ensues a fast-paced comedy of moonlight flits, clothes swapping, mistaken identity, and slapstick accidents as the characters struggle in vain to maintain both dignity and marital harmony. Calm is eventually restored in a scene of unmasking and mutual forgiveness of truly operatic proportions.
- Author BiographyPedro Alarcon (1833 - 91) is one of Spain's most prominent writers. He is chiefly remembered for his subtly ironic plots and quintessentially Spanish settings and characterisations.
