Synopsis

"Lugubrious Nights" follows the protagonist Tediato on his nightly visits to the temple where his beloved is interred. His ultimate intention is to disinter her body and kill himself in her presence. Tediato is a religious skeptic whose grief is cosmic, and he sees no reason not to join his beloved in death, torn as he is between the emptiness of his soul and the emptiness of the world.Hispanist Russell P. Sebold offers the first English translation of the eighteenth-century Spanish lyrical poem in prose by Jose de Cadalso (1741-1782). Inspired by his grief over the death of the actress Maria Ignacia Ibanez, Cadalso composed "Lugubrious Nights" in 1771. Sebold considers it to be the first fully Romantic work of continental European literature, written three years before the publication of Goethe's Werther.
