Leandro Fernández de Moratín's La Mogigata: The Significance of the Holland Manuscript in the Light of Comments from Elizabeth, Lady Holland's Spanish Journal (BL, Add. MS. 51931)
Sally Ann Kitts (notes)
A comparative study of several manuscripts of Leandro Moratín's La mogigata, with particular reference to that presented by the author in the summer of 1804 to Elizabeth, Lady Holland. Drawing on revelations in the original manuscript of her journal (BL, Add. MS. 51931), which is much fuller than the edition published by Ilchester in 1910, the study offers a new perspective on the mindset, motivations and actions of Moratín in 1804 and on the complex early history of this play.
