The Pawns of a Deception (Los empeños de un engaño) is an original comedy by Juan Ruiz de Alarcón, which first appeared in the second part of the comedies of Juan Ruiz de Alarcón y Mendoza, Rapporteur of the Council of the Indies. Published in Barcelona by Sebastián de Cormellas, in 1634.
Its references to Madrid allow us to highlight the costumbrista aspect of the courtly novel of the 16th and 17th centuries. Here there are courtships, challenges, entanglements, unexpected encounters and allusions to places in the city and the Court.
Unlike other gallants of Juan Ruiz de Alarcón, Los empeños de un engaño shows how to lie for love, in a world where falsehood is the mask of a discourse of power. Also noteworthy is the presence of Teodora, one of the most prominent female characters in the universe of Juan Ruiz de Alarcón.
This work delves into character painting to cement Ruiz de Alarcón’s social criticism. In this case, what could have been a drama of honor with which he could censure social behaviors, is frustrated by the attitude of certain characters. Thus, at the end of the play, the villains suffer punishment for their sins.
