Farsa

Entertainment / Literature / Farsa: A medieval Spanish religious play, usually performed in sets rather than alone, with a comic interlude between plays or between acts. An example is Lucas Fern????ndez's Farsas y eglogas al modo y estilo pastoril y castellano (Cuddon 333). Farsa should not be confused with f????rsa, a type of boasting poem in the African Galla tribe that recites a catalog of heroes and their deeds (Cuddon 333).
