The Poetry of Maria de Zayas

Program #CULT030. Recorded in Boulder, CO on December 31, 1969.

Maria de Zaya's early 17th century writing represents Spain's first feminist poet and novelist.  This program features readings in Spanish and English as  well as commentary from  Prof. Yvonne Guillon Barnett.

Speaker(s):

Maria de Zayas

María de Zayas y Sotomayor (September 12, 1590 – 1661) wrote during Spain's Golden Age of literature. She is considered by a number of modern critics as one of the pioneers of modern literary feminism, while others consider her simply a well-accomplished baroque author. The female characters in de Zayas' stories were used as vehicles to enlighten readers about the plight of women in Spanish society, or to instruct them in proper ways to live their lives.
