La Perfecta Casada means the perfect wife. It was written by Luis de Leon in 1583. It was a guide for newly wedded couples and it showed how a wife could become the perfect wife. He wrote this book for his newly wedded cousin, but it became more popular and other people began to use it. It became a published book, and a reprinted copy of this book can be found basically at any bookstore. Barnes and Nobles, Amazon, Toadstool. Just name it. It was one of the most popular books in Spain at that time. I believe it gave a view of Patriarchy and gave women an object like appearance. I like that it shows the thoughts that were thought by men in the Renaissance. It is really quite fascinating. Speaking of the Renaissance, there were many different types of work. I would say that La perfecta casada was an example of idealism because it is a book about how women should act to their husbands. It is giving opinion on how women should actually act towards their husbands.
