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

como pastoral cabana . . . This ties in with the similar material in Figueroa's second ha. A further datum that may be helpful to keep in mind is that Figueroa and his group seem to have arrived in Madrid from a very recent visit to Alcalá; see 531b, 6-7, 35-39. Rennert has no data on this. Again, Figueroa makes comment (532b, 50-56) on his long absence away from Madrid, calling it "esta ausencia tan larga," and he continues most entertainingly :¡qué trabajos no he pasado en la bolsa y en la fama hasta venir a deciros (Dios guarde, amén, mi garganta) que me habían ahorcado! This seems to represent a tale spread abroad by gossip, for (533a, 3) he explains , "en relación me ahorcaron." It would be interesting to know exactly what the tale was, how it got started, and whether perhaps it originated in an actual incident involving Figueroa's brush with the law. There are other has in the Cotarelo Colección that offer materials similar to those in this article; they all deserve close study. To conclude, we should say that we are familiar with most of the materials on the theater that came after Rennert's book, Alonso Cortés's Teatro en Valladolid, Sánchez Arjona's Teatro en Sevilla, Mérimée's Spectacles et Comédiens à Valencia, the BRAE data that appear above. It is indeed possible that error has crept into our article through omissions, but we believe it to be reasonably accurate and thorough. 14It is not possible to determine the last name of Ana Maria. Rennert lists her as "la hija del lapidario"; it is thus that she is called in our loa. ,sThis is probably the Juan Pérez who played galanes in the company of Pedro de la Rosa in 1636. ,4The play on baja of the sixth line and gran turco of the ninth is obvious. Vega was called "el gran turco," for what reason we do not know. His wife, Amarilis, also called "la gran sultana" no doubt because of the nickname of her husband, was the very famous María de Córdoba. (Is it possible that the name Gran turco is explained by the lines of our passage? That is, that Vega, abetted by the prestigious acting of Amarilis, was so devastating to other autores that he gained his nickname because of that fact, just as Solimán, the Gran turco of history, devastated Mediterranean shipping. ) MLA Meeting Spanish 3: The Spanish Comedia.
