Whitney Tessers TMA 202 January 20, 2011 Prompt #3 The Mistress of the Inn – Goldoni 1. Goldoni was trying to write a whole new style of theatre with this and his other plays. Today, Servant is considered the first “modern” European comedy. How does it compare with popular comedies today? Do you see any echoes, or does this seem very dated? (5) I think that this comedy (other than all the little Italian words that needed to be explained in the footnotes) does not seem dated at all. When I think of comedies, especially romantic comedies, I think of a story much like this. The only thing that romantic comedies have that this didn’t have, are the more expected endings. If this comedy were a comedy today, I think Mirandolina would have ended up with the Captain. This play reminds me a lot of that movie with Matthew McCaughey and Sarah Jessica Parker called Failure To Launch, which is a very modern day comedy. 2.
