As early as 1760 and as late as 1920, Romantic drama dominated Peninsular Spanish theater. This love affair with Romanticism influenced the formation of Spain's modern national identity, which depended heavily on defining women's place in 19th century society. Women who defied traditional gender roles became a source of anxiety in society and on stage. The adulteress embodied the fear of rebellious women, the growing pains of modernity and the political instability of war and invasion. This book examines the conflicted portrayal of women and the Spanish national identity. Studying the adulteress on stage, the author provides insight into the uneasy tension between progress and tradition in 19th century Spain.

"An original and significant contribution.... Well researched and nicely focused on specific aspects of the romantic adulteress, it traces the history of Spain's theater in the entire 19th century through a new lens. A careful intertwining of political and theatrical history, Amend's analyses are original and illuminating." --Roberta Johnson, professor emerita of Spanish, University of Kansas
