Stronger Than Love

Carmen, the main character of the story, takes care of Carlos, who is ill but loves her and seeks solace from his pain. The Duchess of Talavera, Carlos’ mother, is the person who puts Carmen in this position, after begging her to take care of her son. Carlos is not just ill but also jealous; he accuses Carmen of not having forgotten her previous life with Guillermo. 


THEMES: Love, Death, Illness, Social Class, High Class, Jealousy

GENRE: Drama, Melodrama


Stronger than love is an excellent example of Benavente’s melodramatic writing style. The story is charged with dramatic elements that could facilitate the development of the story as a television series.

Benavente won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1922. He treated all the theatrical genres and developed a broad gallery of human characters. Many of his plays have been taken to cinema with success and many versions for TV have been made. Benavente’s dialogues are excellent, full with irony. He has been compared to Oscar Wilde.
