Los personajes no ayudan: Apr 16, Valerie rated it it was ok Shelves: Geez, what a melodramatic mess. At least it was short. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. An interesting play of suspicions of infidelity, and the manner in which they can tear apart even the most closely attached individuals under the pressure of offended honor and maligned virtue. Relatively singular in its overall thematic structure, there is not even the hint of any subplot, and a quite ambiguous ‘Prologue’ seems to be a relatively unnecessary add-on.
Due to a deep sense of fealty and respect for his deceased father, who was a friend of his, Don Julian welcomes E Contains spoilers. Due to a deep sense of fealty and respect for his deceased father, who was a friend of his, Don Julian welcomes Ernest into his home, where he is told to look on his benefactor as a father.
Julian’s wife, Teodora, is much younger, and tells Ernest to regard her as a sister. No limitations are placed on the expectations they tell Ernest to have of them, so great is Julian’s sense of obligation.
Seen often with the married couple, Ernest soon becomes the source of innuendo and suspicion: Seen walking in the park together or in the same box at the opera, ‘all Madrid’ comes to believe that there is something illicit going on.
Julian’s brother, Don Severo and his wife, Mercedes, come to join in the aspersions of dl. Their son, Pepito, reports on gossip which he hears to this effect. Ernest moves out of Julian’s home, and even further, plans to emigrate to Argentina. However, he hears both his benefactor and his wife disparaged by a nobleman in a club he is visiting. A duel is planned. Hearing of this, Julian struggles to intervene to prevent bloodshed, even though he has come to believe the scurrilous rumors.
Don Nebreda, the offending nobleman, and Julian are both grievously wounded in the graan confrontations, while at much the same time Teodora manages to persuade Mercedes of her ultimate innocence. A penultimate scene occurs in which a dying Julian forces Teodora and Ernest to look one another in the eye in front of him so that he can see the true love they in fact do feel for one another.
Severo bars Teodora from the house of her deceased husband, and she and Ernest leave together to a future the author leaves quite uncertain.
Were is not grxn the final death bed scene – in which more specific stage directions would have been much appreciated – the play is a seemingly rather pedestrian one on the theme of the ultimate harmfulness of unsubstantiated gossip. As it is, the true feelings of Teodora and Ernest were, if they did ep amount to love, never acted on, and they were relatively blameless.
Galeotl negative aspersions and groundless suspicions should ruin a beautiful friendship is indeed a deplorable result, but the principal victims did so little to defend their sullied reputations that one feels only a bare modicum of sympathy for them. Overall, not a bad play, but nothing all that special either.
