Cruelty for Honor was written by Juan Ruiz de Alarcón between 1619 and 1622. It is one of his comedies about conflicts of honor. Here, through very well achieved monologues, Ruiz de Alarcón exposes his vision of what a good government should be: “just, honest and benevolent with its subjects”.
It should be added that in Cruelty for Honour , useless atrocities are committed in the name of honour.
The historical background of the work and the sources from which Alarcón is nourished is the court of Aragon. It is in this framework where a family plot will converge with conflict of honor included (that of the Aulaga), a political plot (the succession of the throne of Alfonso I, with Queen Petronilla as regent, a legitimate heir still child and a court of nobles who compete for deprivation) and a love plot seasoned, in addition, with the secret that they are brothers of mother one of the pairs of suitors, A secret that will not be revealed until the end of the work.
