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

Color en la comedia Louis C. Pérez, Williams College Micer Andrés Rey de Artieda al fin de su discurso poético, "La Iusta de Paris, a consideración de lo qve en ellas prueua el Illustrissimo Conde de Buñol",1 escribe unas dos páginas de comentarios, para explicar algunos versos y frases, que resultan de particular interés para el estudio del tema ut pietura poesis. Comenta el autor que: Diuisa es el color que sin letra alguna nos muestra lo que siente [el caballero], como el color leonado , descubre señorío, leonado escuro congoxa, verde claro esperanca cobrada, verde escuro esperanca perdida, naranjado porfía, y cumplimiento de desseo". Es bien conocido que en nuestro teatro clásico poético abundan referencias a divisas, empresas y motes. Esta pequeña aclaración de Rey de Artieda es otro dato que debe contribuir a la convicción de que los autores del siglo de oro escogían los colores con esmero y con intención artística y temática. Además de aludir a la estrecha relaci ón que existe entre poesía y pintura , este comentario es importante para el estudio de la psicología en la comedia del XVI-XVII. Que el autor se daba cuenta cabal, de que la divisa revelaba un estado psicológico del personaje , se desprende de las siguientes palabras: "Acerca las diuisas y empresas , y motes, se ha de enteder que los que salen a fiestas con vna destas tres cosas, descubren la passion oculta del animo". Lo arriba citado no es caso aislado en este libro de Rey de Artieda, ni mucho menos. Los ejemplos, que no las explicaciones, relacionados con el tema de ut pictura poesis son numerosos . El curioso puede echar un vistazo a los folios: 59, 59V, 60, 6OV, 61V, 62V, 70V, etc. Gi^ NOTAS 1 Folios 31-41, apud: Micer Andrés Rey de Artieda, Discvrsos, epístolas y epigramas de Artemidoro, Caragoca, 1605. Los comentarios al discurso aparecen en los folios 41V-42. Lo subrayado de lo citado es nuestro. JOHN M. HILL 1887 - 1966 The rapidly diminishing ranks of a great generation of Hispanists have been further reduced by the death of Professor John M. Hill, which occurred unexpectedly on November 6, 1966. He was 79 years old, having been born on September 3, 1887, in Dresden, Tennessee . Professor Hill grew up in the neighborhood of Dresden and attended Vanderbilt University, which granted him the A. B. degree in 1908 and the M. A. degree in 1910. He received the Ph. D. degree in Romance Languages from the University of Wisconsin in 1912, After a short period of teaching, he went to Europe, in 1914, as a Markham 28 Memorial Traveling Fellow and spent the year of 1914-1915 at the University of Madrid and that of 1915-1916 at the University of Paris. He often mentioned to the writer the names of the distinguished Hispanists, English, French, and Spanish, whom he met or under whom he studied while abroad. Upon his return to the United States, he assumed the position of Associate Professor of Romance Languages at Indiana University. He was appointed Professor in 1922, and, in 1934, Head of the recently-established Department of Spanish. He resigned as Head in 1951 and retired from teaching in 1958, as Professor Emeritus, but continued to maintain his office on the campus and to interest himself in departmental and campus activities. He never married . Professor Hill had many interests and was well and widely read, but he was especially devoted to Hispanic literature of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, the drama in particular, and to Spanish lexicography. Besides critical editions of six comedias, prepared by himself or in collaboration and still cited as models of careful scholarship, he published, in a convenient arrangement , the indice general alfabético de todos los títulos de comedias of Francisco Medel del Castillo in volume LXXV (1929) of Revue Hispanique. Among his more important contributions to Spanish lexicography are Voces germanescas (1949), a companion volume to his previously published Poesías germanescas (1945), and his last significant work, the Universal vocabulario of Alfonso de...
