Editor's Note

I first began reading Bulletin of the Comediantes as a student, during the "Golden Age" of James Parr's editorship. From that time forward, I have been struck not only by the richness of the Comedia but also by the variety of approaches to the plays and the array of visions of the society in which they were created. The same point is true in the present, as I continue to appreciate the range and depth of the essays and the scholarly gifts of the contributors. My predecessors Everett Hesse and James Parr recognized the need to mix critical and theoretical models and to present the work of young, as well as established, scholars. The blind evaluation process lends itself to evening the playing field, as it were. As always, we invite submissions on early modern Iberian and colonial Latin American theater. My thanks to Vincent Martin, Gwen Stickney, Thomas O'Connor, and the members of the editorial board for their dedicated work, to the contributors, and, last but hardly least, to our readers.
