While in England, in EdgbastonWarwickshirehe began his association with Romanticismbeing subject to the first-hand influences of William Shakespeare and Walter Scottas well as to that of Gothic aesthetics. Manuel and Chatel are aroused. She tells him that Bernardim insisted on taking part in the play because he was madly in love with her, Paula. And yet although situations as complex as this never arise in Terence, the scene has its original inspiration in a Davus or a Syrus with his back to the wall coming up with something which will appease an outraged senex or a leno who thinks he has been tricked verdads of his girl and his money.
Garrett, as dramatist, tends to be a man of a single work.
This does not mean that Um Auto de Gil Vicente is nothing but a classical comedy. InGarrett published Romanceiro e Cancioneiro Gerala collection of folklore ; two years later, he wrote the first volume of his historical novel O Arco de Santana fully published init took inspiration from Victor Hugo ‘s The Hunchback of Notre Dame. The suspicions of both D. Falar verdade a mentirfor example, is a one-act play of based on an original by the French dramatist Scribe.

The play does indeed break with theatrical tradition, including in the purely formal sense, since it has three acts rather than the classical five and the rule of the three unities is treated with some flexibility.

Manuel, is opposed to it, because his daughter is promised to the Duke of Savoy. Verdaxe in garret case of Um Auto de Gil Vicente it is not necessary to invoke this argument, because marriages of state are a form of prostitution. Um Auto de Gil Vicente is not exactly forgotten. The difference between them is social; as artists and as human beings they have much in common. It is not just a question of the servant being cleverer than his or her master or mistress, which had long been a potentially subversive element in the classical comic tradition.

And the true hero of the piece, a caracter of selfless nobility, is a woman almost unknown to history. There are two ways in which the structure, and not just the characterization, of Um Auto de Gil Vicente develop or subvert the Roman model. She is of different social class, often a slave girl, captured in infancy and sold into prostitution. Inhe moved to Coimbra to study at the University law school. On two occasions in the play Bernardim approaches Beatriz, though on both his impetuosity nearly gets him into serious trouble.
The same irony reappears in D.
It is an extremely complex work of literature, which incorporates many mentlr diverse forms of discourse. There is no doubt that Gil Vicente and his troupe are treated as servants, a fact which his daughter Paula, easily the most perceptive of these characters, bitterly resents: Luiz Francisco Rebello, for example, starts his account of Romantic drama inclearly privileging Um auto de Gil Vicente.

But its structural underpinning remains that of Terentian comedy, an aspect of the play which appears not to have been discussed before, and yet which forms an important part of the whole. Garrett wrote a good deal of literary criticism, and nearly everything that he says about Gil Vicente is dismissive.

Beatriz is a princess, not a prostitute. This is a classic situation of Roman comedy, in which the adulescens pretends to be someone else, but can only do so garrrett the assistance of servants. He is considered to be the introducer of the Romantic movement in Portugal.
In that Bernardim plays the part of the adulescens, or young lover, foolish and feckless, while Gil Vicente is a mentie servant, neither very dignified roles. A further level of meaning is implied by the fact that, by profession, Paula is verddade actress. Views Read Edit View history.
