El rey más perfeto/The Perfect King

Antonio Enríquez Gómez


Bilingual edition

Critical edition, translation, and commentary by Michael McGaha

Antonio Enríquez Gómez was a rare voice of dissent in the artistically liberal but politically conservative milieu of sixteenth-century Spain. This three-act play portrays the figure of the king in accordance with the author’s political ideals—ideals for which he was persecuted by the Inquisition.
