Followed by a short biography of the authors ; and then, a third chapter dealing with the characteristics of their works in relation to the literary mainstream of Spain. The last chapter is a summary and analysis of the play and its characters. Finally, the annotation in English, in which special care was taken to identify all difficult passages; translate them and place them on the same page in which they occur, in such a way as to achieve a balance between the footnotes and the glossary, to make it easier and more enjoyable to read the work.
