The Courts of Death (Las cortes de la muerte), attributed to Lope de Vega, is a sacramental play that offers a unique theatrical experience. Instead of focusing on a dynamic plot and conventional character development, the work stands out for its static tone and limited dramatic action. The core of the piece consists of four speeches, each made up of an extensive sequence of verses. This particular structure gives the work an almost meditative atmosphere, where the speeches themselves become the protagonists.
What might at first glance appear to be a weakness—the lack of action—actually becomes one of the most distinctive strengths of The Courts of Death. The scarcity of action allows the text to delve deeply into philosophical and spiritual themes, creating an introspective environment that invites the audience to reflect on the issues discussed.
The critical interest that this work generates is further heightened by its mention in Cervantes’ Second Part of Don Quixote. When the errant knight comes across the cart of the representatives of Angulo the Bad’s company, the mention of The Courts of Death elevates the work, linking it with one of the most studied and admired texts in Spanish literature.
This sacramental play is, therefore, more than just a simple theatrical work; it is a piece that challenges the conventions of the genre and offers an experience of contemplation and reflection. Its static tone and focus on the speeches give it a distinctive character that sets it apart from other works of the time. The Courts of Death is a work that, far from remaining in mere representation, aspires to be a meeting space between the spectator and the great questions of existence.
