Summary
  • "Wit's End is a loose adaptation of La dama boba (The Lady Simpleton), a comedy by the Spanish playwright Lope de Vega. And, like La dama boba, features two sisters - one mentally challenged and the other exceedingly bright - and two less-than-constant suitors. Love and ingenuity combine to produce a happy ending, engineered by the newly enlightened simpleton
  • Building on the ironies of gender politics, Wit's End presents the metamorphosis of the "slow" sister while allowing the intellectual sister to maintain her lofty aspirations. The volume contains the text of Wit's End, together with an introduction that focuses on the background, criticism, and adaptations of La dama boba."--Jacket
