El heroe romantico de la comedia de teatro largo de Manuel Breton de los Herreros

<p> The comedies of Manuel Bret&oacute;n de los Herreros in the nineteenth century Spanish Romantic literature introduced a new character with romantic and neoclassic traits. This new personality pursued an internal, heroic mission to adapt to the codes of an evolving and modern world. Bret&oacute;n de los Herreros incorporated a novel form of romantic heroism, by combining the features of the romantic hero of the tragic drama into a person of neoclassic virtues. The prior romantic hero was replaced by Bret&oacute;n&rsquo;s modern man. The goal of this Dissertation is to confirm the comedy as an effective literary style that influenced the Romantic liberal movement and announced the decay of the liberal tendency towards a more realistic literary approach in the perspective of the heroic virtues. Bret&oacute;n de los Herreros displayed four heroic styles that are related among themselves and which reflect novel literary perspectives of the new romantic character. His new hero transforms his or her former tragic nature into a personality more akin to the values of the Neoclassic movement. This new hero brings into the Nineteenth century the heroic virtues of the Illustration and thus, forces the Romantic literary movement to reevaluate the violent style as the only alternative of the hero&rsquo;s expression of his or her &lsquo;Self&rsquo;. The four romantic comedies of this Dissertation will explain the similarities and the differences among Bret&oacute;n&rsquo;s sensible heroes that coexisted with the tragic heroes. Key words: h&eacute;roe rom&aacute;ntico, comedia rom&aacute;ntica, Romanticismo, Bret&oacute;n de los Herreros</p><p>
