Title : Mothers and Daughters in Fifteenth-century Spanish Sentimental Romances: Implications for "Celestina" [Towards the end of the fifteenth century, it became less common for Spanish authors of sentimental romances to present favorable representations of active mother figures. Although it is not a sentimental romance, “Celestina” by Fernando de Rojas was influenced by the genre and can be seen as the culmination of this literary trend. In this text, the active mother figure is a bawd and the biological mother barely appears. These texts perpetuate the misogynist trope that depicts women who act upon sheer emotion or will as the agents of sexual violence; men, on the other hand, base their actions upon reason.
