Item description for El doncel de don Enrique el Doliente by José de Larra Mariano...

'El doncel de don Enrique el Doliente' tells of a courtly intrigue from the 14th Century. It's a period portrait that keeps the reader in suspense throughout with an almost paranoid narration of a plot thick with conspirators and schemers. Enrique III, el Doliente, King of Castille from 1390 to 1406, was called "the ill" or "the suffering", due to his poor health. Amid his difficulties, he had to confront the aristocracy when it tried to take advantage of political instability stimulated by the massacre of Jews of 1391. Enrique also confronted the Trastmaras, Alfonso and Fadrique, and finally overcame them. 'El doncel de don Enrique el Doliente' has an historical background based on some of these incidents, told through a tense atmosphere and characters and protagonists pertinent to the political climate fo the times. One unique feature of the book is the profusion of characters of widely varied religious convictions. A palace adviser is Jewish, while many scenes are devoted to illustrating the conflicts that arose between the Islamic world and the Catholic monarchs of Spain. El doncel de don Enrique el Doliente relata una intriga cortesana en el siglo XIV. Se trata de un retrato de poca que mantiene la tensin del lector todo el tiempo con una descripcin casi paranoica de una trama llena de conspiradores y ambiciosos. Enrique III el Doliente, rey de Castilla entre 1390 y 1406, fue llamado "el Doliente" por su fragil salud. En medio de sus padecimientos, tuvo que enfrentarse a la nobleza cuando sta intent sacar provecho de la inestabilidad poltica provocada por la masacre de judos de 1391. Enrique se enfrent tambin a los Trastmara, Alfonso y Fadrique y finalmente los someti. El doncel de Don Enrique el Doliente tiene como trasfondo histrico algunas de estas peripecias, narradas en una atmsfera de tensin protaganizada por relevantes personajes de la poltica de entonces. Un rasgo a destacar de la novela es la profusin de personajes de las ms variadas confesiones religiosas. Un consejero de palacio es judo y hay escenas enteras dedicadas a mostrar los tratos entre el mundo islmico y los reyes cristianos de Espaa.
