Abstract:Sangre, valor y fortuna is the only play by dramatist Francisco Bances Candamo (1662-1704) which has never been published. It was not included in the Poesias comicas, the most complete collection of comedias by Bances Candamo, nor was it published in the form of a suelta, as happened with other plays by the same author. The only extant source for this comedia is one single manuscript kept as the Biblioteca Nacional, in Madrid. Its handwriting is seventeenth century, yet is is not the playwright's own.
In addition to providing an extensive introduction that gives a useful biographical profile of Bances Candamo, as well as the historical background, I explore some of the most noteworthy aspects of the play, I offer my own edition of the text of Sangre, valor y fortuna, which is the first modern attempt to edit the manuscript and correct the copist's errors, thus presenting the play as close as possible to Bances Candamo's original intentions. Completing the edition is the critical apparatus, consisting of thorough explanatory footnotes and a bibliography--the most extensive about Bances Candamo up to date.
