Abstract:

The study of the temporal consciousness of La Celestina’s characters allow us to understand better the ongoing changes of the society at the end of the Middle Ages. At the same time, the analysis of this precise and special historic period provides us certain keys to comprehend the way of thinking and acting of the characters. The proposal of this article is doing an analysis in two directions, apparently conflicting, but complementary: on one hand, time as a factor that constrains the characters’ passions so that it moves their actions in an implacable battle against it, and, on the other hand, the creation of an personal and relative consciousness of time according to the personal features of each one of the characters.
