About the Author: Gaspar Melchor de Jovellanos

Gaspar Melchor de Jovellanos (born Gaspar Melchor de Xove y Llanos, 5 January 1744 – 27 November 1811) was an Asturian-born Spanish neoclassical statesman, author, philosopher and a major figure of the Age of Enlightenment in Spain.

Jovellanos's prose works, especially those on political and legislative economy, constitute his real claim to literary fame. In them, depth of thought and clear-sighted sagacity are couched in a certain Ciceronian elegance and classical purity of style. Besides the Ley agraria, he wrote Elogios, and a most interesting set of diaries or travel journals (1790–1801, first published in 1915) reflecting his trips across Northern Spain. He also published several other political and social essays.

His poetical works comprise a tragedy, Pelayo, the comedy El delincuente honrado, satires, and miscellaneous pieces, including a translation of the first book of Paradise Lost.

Comedia sentimental alusiva a la reforma del código penal. Es un drama burgués, de los pocos que tuvieron éxito en España, sobre la injusticia de las leyes que condenaban por igual al retador y al retado en los duelos de honor. El delincuente honrado (1773), fue un símbolo de identidad entre las clases sociales interesadas en una renovación burguesa de las leyes y las costumbres. Considerada, incluso, «literatura comprometida».
