Summary
The dramatic works of Pedro Calderon de la Barca have been widely analyzed by critics from many different countries. The master dramatist embodies the spirit of the Baroque period of which he is such an integral part. A heretofore almost untapped source of critical inquiry are the paired sonnets imbedded in Calderon's dramatic texts. In my dissertation I critically consider the imbedded sonnets, especially elucidating the dramatic purposes of Calderon in writing these sonnets. I will, first of all, provide a short history of the sonnet in Spain, suggesting that Spanish poetry, with a few "bumps and bruises" along the way, incorporated the foreign Italian meter with a surprising degree of facility. The Spanish Renaissance and Baroque authors not only readily adopted the new verse form but also accomplished it with a great degree of success. After briefly commenting on the sonnet as form in the comedia I will suggest a nomenclature to be used in describing the various sonnets and their dramatic functions. After providing a basis of nomenclature, I will analyze the structuralists' attempts to explicate sonnets and enumerate the various functions of some of the 33 sonnets imbedded in the dramas. I will conclude my paper by suggesting that a proper understanding of the dramatic function of the imbedded sonnets opens up many new areas of inquiry into Calderonian dramatic practice
