In this weeks episode, Cristina Guardiola-Griffiths Associate Professor of Spanish at the Department of Languages, Literatures, and Cultures at the University of Delaware, delves into the witchcraft and cosmetic reconstruction encompassed in the classic, tragic love story of La Celestina by Fernando de Rojas.

In a story where the societal rules of the time period have been broken, Fernando de Rojas writes about young love that still resonates with the new generations. Two of his characters, Calixto and Melibea are brought together by the spells and potions of La Celestina, but aren't conscious of their consequences. In a tragic turn of events, their infatuation with each other causes many characters to perish. Listen as Guardiola-Griffiths shares de Rojas' revolutionary vision and ideas about equality.
