Death by surfeit of Don Juan criticism

I thought that the documentary hypothesis was complicated and confusing. I was forced to reevaluate that judgment after encountering the debate over the authorship of El burlador de Sevilla and a question related to that debate, "Who created Don Juan?"

Right now, I wish my introduction* to the play had diagrams to illustrate the theories. We wants nice happy diagrams...

*Amazon shows a different edition than the one I have. Mine is published by Catedra.
