La traducción del teatro áureo en Italia, desde el siglo XIX hasta nuestros días

Constantes y variables en la formación de un canon

Fausta Antonucci    Università degli Studi Roma Tre, Italia    



This essay aims to provide an overview of the Italian translations of Spanish Golden Age theatre from the 19th century to the present, identifying above all the differences in the approach to Spanish texts compared to previous centuries and the distinctive features of each historical-cultural period within this long span of time. Romantic translations (a period marked by the great collections of theatrical texts by Monti and La Cecilia) were characterised by their marked preference for religious and honour-based dramas and for the works of Calderón; while the 20th century saw a general reworking of the corpus of translated texts, with a stable presence of Calderón and the recovery of the dramas on peasant honour by Lope de Vega. The emergence and affirmation of the poetic translation is highlighted, from the early experiments of the 1920s to the general acceptance of our days, and the role hispanists and writers played in this choice. An analysis of the corpus of translation collections in the 20th and 21st centuries, as well as of the many individual translations, also shows how the canon of the Spanish Golden Age theatre has changed both on the academic and editorial side.
