Jacinto Benavente's attitude toward women as compared with that of authors outside of Spain
This study is an interpretation of Benavente's attitude toward woman as revealed in his drama. As a background the development of woman's condition is historically treated. The rise of her influence is traced first through the drama outside of Spain; and , second, in the Spanish drama which preceded Benvente. Benavente's portrayal of woman is presented through an analysis of the various phases of woman's relation to man, her self-abnegation, love of home, her mother love, and her racial pride. Above all and through all runs the redeeming power of woman and her devotion to duty.
