Socio-Genesis, Ideology, and Culture
This chapter examines the role of socio-genesis, ideology, and culture in the modification of Spanish attitudes to comedy or comic fiction during the 16th century. It suggests that the evolution of attitudes to comic fiction was influenced by the emergence of a large urban middle-to-upper class acting as primary cultural consumer, the prescriptive and authoritarian spirit of the age, and its pervasive academic ethos. This chapter explores the major political events that triggered the evolution of manners and taste.
