I finished reading the
English translation of El Capitan Alatriste during the holiday break and
enjoyed it very much. Diego Alatriste, Inigo, Charles, Buckingham,
the Italian, and the varied mix of Alatriste's friends make me want to
read the next books following this one. The next book is called Purity
of Blood. Viggo Mortensen bringing Diego Alatriste to life on
the big screen will be fun to watch!
Here is a quote from the
book on page 199 that is in keeping with the spirit of this website:
"From the monarch to the lowest townsman, in the Spain of Philip the
Fourth, everyone had a burning passion for theater. The comedias had
three jornadas, or acts, and were written in verse, in several meters and
rhymes...the popularity of the actors and actresses was enormous.
Every premiere or performance of a famous work brought out town and
court, and through the nearly three hours each play lasted, the audience
was in thrall. At that time, the productions usually took place in
daylight, in the afternoon after the midday meal, in open-air venues known
