La Estrella de Sevilla, one of the most representative Spanish playes written in the 17th century, is a work that had provoked a continuous controversy regarding who the original author is in the previous century. Among many scholars, whether the original author of this play is Lope or Claramonte still remains to be answered to this day. Aside from whether or not Claramonte is the original author of this play, the fact is that it is quite problematic to consider Lope the original author of this play. As far as this problem is concerned, Professor Alfredo Rodríguez and many other scholars, through proposing literary, technical and lexical grounds, contended that Lope is not the original author. However, for the hypothesis that it may be problematic to consider Lope the original author of this play to be more convincing, it is necessary to bring up a problem from more of a comprehensive perspective. However, to do so, it is necessary to compare La Estrella de Sevilla with other representative tragic works by Lope such as El castifgo sin venganza and El caballero de Olmedo from the perspective of the Aristotelian tragedy. In such tragic works by Lope who claimed to stand for Aristotelianism, some of the most distinctive characteristics of an Aristotelian tragedy such as inevitable destiny and main characters’ voluntary resistance are explicitly revealed. However, in La Estrella de Sevilla, such characteristics are almost never revealed. This is expected to serve as another decisive ground that convincingly supports the hypothesis contended by many scholars that Lope may not be the original author of La Estrella de Sevilla.
