Diego Jimenez De Enciso

Diego Jiménez de Enciso (1585-1634) was a playwright of the Spanish Golden Age.

He was much admired and praised by Cervantes, Lope de Vega and Montalván; the last considered him a "model for those who wish to write great comedies". In his catalogue of the Spanish theatre, Cayetano Barrera gives a list of eleven plays by Enciso.Three have reached several editions, namely, "El Príncipe Don Cárlos", "La Mayor Hazaña del Emperador Cárlos Quinto", and "Los Médicis de Florencia". To the average reader, however, only the last named is easily accessible. It is to be found in "La Biblioteca de Autores Españoles".

Enciso's idea of the historical drama is unique for a Spanish dramatist, for he seems to regard the historical drama as being capable of adhering closely to facts. He uses recognized sources in such a way as to give to his plot the appearance of probability.

In his versification Enciso shows great variety, but the eleven-syllabled verse seems to predominate. His work as a whole is characterized by the elevated tone which pervades it, simple plots, and sonorous language.
