In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

just as he assumes wealth will cause an increase in his power. Lázaro, however , concentrates on the second stage, wherein the impetus of the new-born river is transformed into a less showy, more stately and, inferentially, more thoughtful progress as it reaches the level plains prior to entering the sea. The overt power seen by Nabal is contrasted to the quiet strength inferred by Lázaro, as each interprets his image according to his own motivations. The "mansos" is crucial to Lázaro, reflecting the necessity of man's meekness, and by extension the implicit reminder that those in power have the greater need for humility. A comment which could be taken by the audience with reference to the play itself as well as to the society of the time. ít¿S«b NOTES 1 Jorge Manrique, Cancionero, ed. by Augusto Cortina, Clás. cast.
