The purpose of this dissertation is to attempt to clarify somewhat the confusion and vagueness surrounding the question of the "influence" of Spanish drama on the Restoration comedy of intrigue with special reference to Aphra Behn. The dissertation consists of two parts: Part I is a comparative study of the Restoration and Spanish comedy of intrigue; Part II is a study of Aphra Behn's comedies of intrigue and her debt to Spain.
