Plot Outline: Despite the dampening effects of the Inquisition and the Counter-Reformation, the Renaissance gave a powerful impetus to learning and experimentation—and in the process ensconced Castilian as the language of choice for both poetry and prose. In this program, renowned experts place the masters of the Renaissance within the context of their times. Dramatic readings include excerpts from Fernando de Rojas’s La Celestina, Juan Alfonso de Baena’s Cancionero de Baena, the Marqués de Santillana’s Diálogo de Bias Contra Fortuna, Jorge Manrique’s Coplas a la Muerte del Maestre Don Rodrigo, and selected romanceros.
