Abstract
Quintillas appear in thirteen or fourteen of the thirty-eight extant plays of Antonio Enriquez Gomez that are authentic or probably so. Of these quint illas, 98.4% are Type 1 (ababa). Calderon's quintillas are far more varied: 56.1% are Type 1, 36.0% are Type 5 (aabba). 6.7% are Type 3 (abaab) and th e rest are mainly Type 2 (abbab). The percentages for both parts of La hija del aire are remarkably close to those for Calderon's comedias and quite u nlike Enriquez's. This new evidence, combined with the stylistic difference s noted in my previous study should finally eliminate any remaining doubts about Calderon's authorship of Hija the play.
