La Celestina or Tragicomedy of Calisto and Melibea is a tragic love story. A falcon escapes, and a dashing knight, in its pursuit, enters a garden and sees a beautiful young girl with whom he falls madly in love; this is how this splendid work, the height our literature, begins. In addition to Calisto and Melibea, its pages are inhabited by a unique character: the cunning and wicked Celestina, matchmaker and sorceress whose evil arts and knowledge of human nature are behind much of the twisted plot; but there are other characters who play a role: Sempronio, Pármeno, Elicia, Areúsa We hear the far off voices of them all in a dialogue which is full of passion, greed, envy, cowardice, sweetness, and despair. A hurry to descend a stairway, a foot misplaced, and for Calisto and Melibea the paradise of their joy closes for ever. Between these two fortuitous events a masterfully constructed plot develops written in natural, elegant language with contrasting nuances and registers. Fernando de Rojas must have written it at the end of the 15th century; it was printed in 1500 as Comedia, with 16 acts, and by 1502 it had been rewritten and had the 21 of Tragicomedia.
