This chapter explores connections between lost and/or rediscovered texts of Shakespeare, Cervantes and Lope de Vega. Beyond the actual similarities between the recreated Cardenio that brings together the first two authors, on the one hand, and Lope’s Mujeres y criados, on the other, I analyse the parallels and divergences in their performance, as they are mobilized to promote particular versions of Spain. A more precise understanding of these connections, I argue, allows us to consider how evolving class dynamics enable or complicate erotic rivalries in the texts.
