The Man Who Was His Own Twin (El semejante a sí mismo) ironizes with the lies of the characters who hide the truth to seduce. In addition, it ridicules the lack of verisimilitude of these love episodes. As in other pieces of Novo-Hispanic theater, marked by the dramaturgical convention that the plot takes place in Spain, Juan Ruiz de Alarcón makes only one mention of Mexico:

“Mexico, the celebrated / head of the Indian world…”

The Man Who Was His Own Twin is one of Alarcón’s first works, written, it is believed, during his stay in Seville, and set in that city. Some critics consider it a comedy of moralizing intention, although it also contains intrigue and character, around the amorous vagaries of two young people.
This is one of Ruiz de Alarcón’s lesser known pieces. It has a certain stylistic relationship with the short novel El curioso impertinente, by Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra.
