    • Abstract:
      This article presents a study which addresses the prescriptive and descriptive functions of feminist exemplarity applied on the comedy play entitled "La traición en la amistad," by María de Zayas in Spain. According to the author, the feminist exemplarity has impacted the reception of the play in a way that has displaced critical focus on the codes and social context of seventeenth-century Spanish theater. It is suggested that a mode of feminine exemplarity in the play would prefer that the patriarchy should remain unpublished until the late twentieth century.
