Beatriz is, after all, being sent abroad to live with a man who she does not know. Luiz Francisco Rebello, for example, starts his account of Romantic drama inclearly privileging Um auto de Gil Vicente. But servants can also be comically incompetent, like Gil Vicente himself.

When fqlar constitutional monarchy was established, he briefly served as its Consul General to Brussels ; upon his return, he was acclaimed as one of the major orators of Liberalism, and took initiative in the creation of a new Portuguese theatre during the period, he wrote his historical plays Gil VicenteD. Garrett himself claimed that the play, first staged inmarked the start of a truly national style of drama in Portugal, and that is a view frequently repeated, especially in histories of literature.

Manuel, Gil Vicente and Bernardim Ribeiro are all, each in his own way, great historical figures, and yet they are made to operate through a structure which is that of light comedy. But although Garrett wanted to bring alive the great writers of the past he also wanted to almeiad a distance between his work and theirs.

Retrieved from ” https: So far as I know, the only critic to have gone beyond verdsde purely text-book approach to the play is Helena Barbas, whose page essay is published in her Almeida Garrett, o trovador moderno. He is considered to be the introducer of the Romantic movement in Portugal.


Frei Luis De Sousa/Falar a Verdade a Mentir : Almeida Garrett :

Certainly the great changes in social life between ancient times and the Europe of the sixteenth century led the Renaissance imitators of Terence to change the convention that the heroine had to be a loose woman. The same irony reappears in D. 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.

Two areas of complexity which she identifies are particularly relevant to what follows. She shows how the plebeian Paula, daughter of Gil Vicente, grows in stature as the plays progresses and in the end dominates the stage.

Today the tragedy continues to be very successful, both in terms of staging and in the quantity of critical attention that it receives. This is a classic situation of Roman comedy, in which the adulescens pretends to be someone else, but can only do so with the assistance of servants.

She is of different social class, often a slave girl, captured in infancy and sold into prostitution. Beatriz is superior to Bernardim, not inferior as in the case of Roman comedy, a point that will be returned to later. But there is no doubt that it is Garrett who is in charge. Indeed the whole play could be seen in that light.

O Arco de Santana signified a change in Garrett’s style, leading to a more complex and subjective prose with which he experimented at length in Viagens na Minha Terra [3] Travels in My Homeland The point has already been made that Um Auto de Gil Vicente is a many layered play. On two occasions in the play Bernardim approaches Beatriz, though on both his impetuosity nearly gets him into serious trouble. Almost invariably the tricks and disguises practised by adulescens and servus lead to further complications, which require all the wiliness of the slave to sort out.

Garrett certainly intended to remind his audience of the national literature. Oxford, 26 de Novembro de And when all seems lost a relative arrives unexpectedly from abroad with the news that, after all, puella was not born a slave but is a girl of respectable parents who is free, therefore, to marry her love-sick admirer.


At one gxrrett the aristocratic Bernardim seems to be a very different character from Gil Vicente. Filipa de Vilhena are three-act plays, but others are much shorter. One has already been mentioned: Manuel, is opposed to it, because his daughter is promised to the Duke of Savoy. He does not absorb them magically or symbolically, as Barbas believes, but puts them in their place, fitting them into the structure of his own, classical comedy.

The Duke of Saldanha.

But behind Garrett and Scribe the Terentian structure is clearly visible. No relative lands after a sea-voyage with news that will allow Bernardim and Beatriz to marry; instead, Beatriz leaves by sea, never to return, a complete inversion of the Roman model. A gaarrett level of meaning is implied by the fact that, by profession, Paula is an actress.

The point has already been made that Um Auto de Gil Vicente is not just a neat classical comedy. By pigeonholing his characters, making them conform to unflattering classical stereotypes, he is distracting attention from their contribution to literature and concentrating on his.

Um auto de Gil Vicente is already looking as though it deserves more than the page garrert two allotted to it in literary histories. And what separates Bernardim and Gil Vicente from Garrett is the classicism which became the dominant mode of Portuguese literature in the Renaissance and in which Garrett himself had been brought up. If we are to see the play in terms of Terentian comedy then Bernardim is the adulescens and D. As usual, Paula hits the nail on the head:
