The Room

History if passes in an old castle and the first didasclia (perhaps the only natural and more representative element of a more conventional teatral text) draws the proposal. One room that is without a doubt in an old castle. Of the room one sees that it is to circulate. To the center it is risen, on a table, a coffin with a maiden, of white. Four torches to the cantos.

To the right, almost in front of who it imagines the room, it has an only window, high and narrow, giving for where only it is seen, between two distant mounts, a small space of sea. Of the side of the window three maidens guard. If you have read about Teneo already – you may have come to the same conclusion. The first one is seated in front of the window, of coasts against from above torch of the right. The others two are seated one of each side of the window. It is night and it has as that a vacant moonlight remaining portion. (PERSON apud MOISS, 1998, p.66) the main elements of the pessoano teatral text are ranks: one closed room, three maidens to guard a body, torches of candles, silence or nor always, a small window, a piece of sea and a vacant moonlight remaining portion.

They are elements that will serve of base for the quarrels that will be stopped between the women and that, in many ways, will denounce the overwhelming linkings with deep I of dramaturgo and its capacity of if metamorfosear consolidating what the poet goes to characterize more ahead as Drama in last Gente.O is convoked? not without resistance? to lead to stimulate the reflections of the three women, supposedly sisters, while not sanguineous and cool ray the dawn. They are reflections on infancy, on dreams, on you distress and hopes; on life and death. Subjects that fortify, without a doubt, the static character of the teatral text of Person and disclose onrica and philosophical an atmosphere, granting to the text a specific character of dramatical reading in opposition to the one of more dynamic stage.
