Description
Summary:"El perro del hortelano" es una comedia palatina peculiar. Su protagonista Diana, Condesa de Belflor (Emma Suárez) es una joven atractiva, imaginativa y perspicaz, que rompe la idea del personaje arquetípico femenino de la comedia: sumisa y obediente. Diana se enamora de su secretario Teodoro (Carmelo Gómez) quien a su vez está prometido con Marcela (Ana Duato), dama al servicio de la Condesa. A Diana le muerde la envidia y los celos, conocer las relaciones amorosas de sus subordinados. Así desarrolla la ambición de Teodoro al verse objeto de deseo de Diana, que ésta enciende y frustra cíclicamente. De ahí que "El perro del hortelano" derive de un conocido refrán: "ni come ni deja comer, ni está fuera ni está dentro".
El perro del hortelano is a peculiar palatine comedy (a drama sub-genre from the Spanish Golden Age). Diana (Emma Suárez), the protagonist, is the countess of Belflor. She is an attractive, imaginative, and perceptive young woman, who breaks the stereotype of the female archetypal character of comedy; submissive and obedient. Diana falls in love with her secretary, Teodoro (Carmelo Gómez), who is engaged to Marcela (Ana Duato), a countess maid. Diana is deeply jealous of the romantic relationships of her subordinates. Teodoro's desire for her deepens, as he sees himself as the object of Diana's desire, which she cyclically ignites and frustrates. For this reason, El perro del Hortelano derives from a well-known saying, "he's like the gardener's dog, that eats no cabbage and won't let others either".
