"Amazonas en las Indias," by Tirso de Molina, edited by Gladys Robalino and Glenda Nieto-Cuebas
In 1616, Tirso de Molina was sent to the island of Santo Domingo on a pastoral mission. He spent two years in America, making him the only Spanish-born playwright of his time to have first-hand knowledge of the New World. He wrote about America in his Trilogía de los Pizarros. Amazonas en las Indias is the second part of that trilogy. This play centers on the exploration in search of the Land of Cinnamon, a legendary land overflowing with spices that attracted many Spanish explorers, chief among them Gonzalo Pizarro.
