Title: Edición modernizada y anotada de la versión manuscrita de Peribáñez y el Comendador de Ocaña, de Lope de Vega en la Biblioteca de Melbury House.
Author: Droege, Sonja.
Abstract: This M.A. thesis is a modernized and annotated edition of an anonymous manuscript version of Lope de Vega's 'comedia' Peribanez y el Comendador de Ocana. The manuscript, part of a volume entitled "Comedias de Lope de Vega. Tomo I MSS", belonged at one time to Lord Holland and is now found in the Melbury House library of the Viscount and Viscountess of Galway in Dorset, England. The manuscript is not a direct copy of Lope de Vega's Peribanez but, more than likely, the work of a 'memorion'. A 'memorion' was someone who attended theatre performances for the purpose of memorizing, copying and finally adapting plays with perhaps the collaboration of a poet or the director of a theatre company, known as the 'autor de comedias'. These pirated adaptations would then be performed for rural audiences. Lope de Vega himself was well aware of these activities, which confirms that the profession of the 'memorion' was fairly common in those days. The main objective of this edition is to provide a readable text of the MS. To this end I have modernized the spelling and added the necessary punctuation and accents. I have reconstructed the text according to modern editing practices and rules of verification and also indicated the division of scenes or "cuadros" and the type of verse form used. Changed to the text of the MS and comments about the play are found in the notes at the end of the edited text. (Abstract shortened by UMI.)
