Gil Vicente (1465 -1536) was a Portuguese playwright and poet who acted in and directed his own plays. Considered the chief dramatist of Portugal, he is sometimes called the “Portuguese Plautus” often referred to as the “Father of Portuguese drama”. He is one of Western literature’s greatest playwriters. Vicente wrote in Portuguese as much as he did in Spanish and is thus, with Juan del Encina, considered joint-father of Spanish drama.
While many of Vicente’s works were composed to celebrate religious and national festivals or to commemorate events in the life of the royal family, others draw upon popular culture to entertain and often criticize the Portuguese society of his days. His plays and poetry were a reflection of the changing times during the transition from the Middle Ages to the Renaissance, and created a balance between the former time of hierarchical social structure and the new society in which this order was undermined.
Though some of his works were later suppressed by the Portuguese Inquisition causing his fame to wane, he is now recognised as one of the principal figures of the Portuguese Renaissance.
