In addition to the biblical story, Spanish playwrights drew upon a rich tradition of retellings of the Joseph story written during the Middle Ages by Muslim, Jewish, and Christian Spaniards. Each of these ethnic and religious groups developed new interpretations of the story dictated by the historical circumstances of a particular time and place, yet each was influenced by the versions created by the others. Ultimately, this grudging collaboration produced a uniquely qmulticulturalq version of the story.Ia#39;m not wasting my time listening to such goody-goody nonsense. ... This is the first time Ia#39;ve ever had occasion to thank anyone, for I am so unfortunate that no one has ever done me a favor, so Ia#39;ve never really learned how to say thanks.
