Johnson University of California, Los Angeles The seventh paso of Lope de Rueda’s El deleitoso, as everyone knows, dramatizes a ridiculous quarrel between a rustic husband and wife concerning the price to be charged for the fruit of an olive tree which has just been planted.
Dee clash between Toruvio and his shrewish wife occupies the attention of the audience from the very beginning. She attacks in a new direction: The principal altercation acitunas out of her suggestion that the olives be harvested and sold.
It is during this indirect confrontation that the full irony of the situation and the couple’s stupidity are brought home to the audience. We are therefore in full possession of all the information necessary to enjoy the quarrel as farce.

As we have seen, Rueda has taken care to preface the quarrel with all the information necessary for our understanding and enjoyment of it as it is being Project MUSE promotes the creation and dissemination of essential humanities and social science resources through collaboration with libraries, publishers, and scholars worldwide.
