Resumen del Libro:

libro Domus

TEMPORARY Domus offers a novel analysis of literary representations of homes and urban dwellings in early modern Spain. The book investigates novels, theater and material culture in the Baroque period that prove key instruments in understanding the sociopolitical, economic and affective meanings of the early modern Spanish house. The book demonstrates that a nascent urban nobility in the Iberian Peninsula, particularly around the court of Madrid, initiated a radical transformation of the domestic during the 17th century, which infused the experience of being at home with a sense of baroque theatricality. In order to investigate the theatricality of domestic practices, architecture, and households the author focuses on key cultural expressions that concurrently arose in Spain in the 17th century: courtly novels, cape and sword plays, and comic interludes. Hence, the book looks beyond the speculation regarding the separation between public and private spheres as the historical condition for the emergence of Modernity, and uses the concept of theatricality to challenge the interior-exterior divide. Under the umbrella concept of Baroque House, a term borrowed from current studies on the Hispanic Baroque. Cirnigliaro focuses on a select number of literary houses including, Houses of Malice, Dollhouses, Rental Houses, Building Apartments, Mansions, Pleasure Houses, and Haunted Houses. Noelia S. Cirnigliaro is Assistant Professor at Dartmouth College.
