Tirso de Molina *

a.k.a. Gabriel Tellez

Author Code: STDM

Born: Mar. 24, 1579 - Madrid, Spain

Died: Mar. 12, 1648 - Soria, Spain

Educated at Alcala de Henares, Tellez joined the Mercedarian order in 1600 and continued his studies at Guadalajara. From 1605 to 1615 he is known to have lived in Toledo, where he wrote many of his early plays. Although he had been ordained a priest by 1610, it seems he devoted much of his time to writing. He produced some 300 comedies during the 14-year period from 1607 to 1621 as quoted in his Los Cigarrales de Toledo (1624). His satires of the nobility and authority often got him into trouble. He nevertheless attained popularity second only to Lope de Vega during the 1620s and 1630s. From 1632 to 1639 he was in Barcelona in service of his order. He was then appointed superior of the monastery at Soria, where he later dies. Tellez adopted the pseudonym of Tirso de Molina early in his career. A prolific author, Tellez produced some 400 plays, of which 86 are extant. His many works include La huerta de Juan Fernandez (1626), Prudence in Woman (1634), La Vengonza de Tamar (1634), Antonio Garcia (1635), The Trickster of Seville and His Guest of Stone [El Burlador de Sevilla] (1635), Historia general de la Orden de Nuestra Senora de las Mercedes (1637) and Las quinas de Portugal (1638).
