Description

Small 4to.  12 pp.  Quarter cloth.  

The short play or intermezzo is a lively “dispute” between a man and his wife in which the former chastises the latter for her lack of obedience.   The popularity throughout Portugal of the teatro de cordel plays continued well into the 20th century.   Many of the comedias were adaptations of dramas imported from Italy (for example, by Goldoni), France (for example, Moliere), and other countries, in varying degrees of fidelity to the original.
