Dr. Mujica examines the process of maturation in the art of character development that contributes to the transformation of the genre from simple romance to a form that more closely resembles the modern novel. Dr. Mujica demonstrates that Spanish pastoral characters evolve from the allegorical to the concrete, from the decorative to the substantive, as the role of free will increases in the genre.
