La Celestina by Fernando De Rojas - Summary

La Celestina is a story from the Renaissance, different from the rest. An authentic portrayal of reality instead of a sentimental approach, typical of the period it is set in. A young man, Calisto, infatuated by the splendid Melibea, asks for help from the greedy and shrewd Celestina, who organises a romantic meeting between the two. Romance blossoms, however, it ends quickly in tragedy…

---

A finales del siglo XV, la vieja Celestina se dedica a concertar amores en su propio beneficio. Calisto le pide ayuda para conseguir los favores de Melibea. ¿Será capaz Celestina con sus artificios de hacer caer a la joven en los brazos de Calisto? El autor, con un empleo magistral del lenguaje, da vida a personajes complejos, recrea ambientes y ofrece una visión amarga y pesimista de la vida, de la que se desprende un profundo lirismo.
