abstract

This is an analysis of the character of the gipsy in the old and Renaissance Iberian Peninsula plays. In Lope de Rueda’s Auto de la Huida a Egipto, Medora and Eufemia (1567) and in his paso La gitana ladrona; in Juan de Timoneda’s Turiana (1563) or in Gil Vicente’s plays, not leaving out other contemporary plays. We will start by showing how this characters are a highly codified projection, how are they gestated and how the same cliché serves sometimes to a humorous purpose while other times the gipsies are considered as heralds of misfortune. We will finally analyse some cases in which the playwrighters use these gipsies with a moral and satiric aim to condemn the vices and flaws of men and society.
