El rey de sí mismo

Sobre Ruiz de Alarcón_ Raúl H.Lira_Dirección Juan Francisco Hernández Ramos

El rey de sí mismo

Historical comedy fiction about Don Juan Ruiz de Alarcón y Mendoza. To begin with, as old representations used to start, apologizing for what you will read or witness. It is not fake modesty, is the author's honesty who feels powerless to not be able to include in a dramatic play everything concernig Juan Ruiz de Alarcón. This is a superficial aproximation, too much perhaps, about who was this important author from Taxco, first world mexican, the playwright that knew exactly where to stand using his intelligence, talent and humanity as the best writers of the spanish Golden Age did, though not without bitterness, prejudices and cruelties in a Spain collapsing as an empire, but at the same time fulfilling the world like a dying supernova.

This dramatic work wants to get closer to Juan Ruiz humanity and his context, in plain language, in modern spanish, without the beauty of the verse and reminds of the comedy of intrigues, all this by using an elementary historical bibliography, without the intent of an actual biography of Juan Ruiz, the author of the text used historic licence to narrate this story. The Juan Ruiz that lives in these pages is a character more in the comedy. It is a joyful exercise to celebrate the life of an extraordinary man without claiming it as an erudite and strict essay about the life and work of this universal mexican, born American and Spanish for survival. I apologize for the troubles this text may cause you.
