The comparison of satirical and burlesque representations of hell allows us to point out some analogies between different works and authors documented in Valencia from 1627 to 1656. Some works of Quevedo printed in this city, as the Sueños and the ballad Los que quisieren saber, seem to have inspired El infierno of Jacinto Alonso Maluenda and the Somni de l’infern of Pere Jacint Morlà. This last author has also written the Pintura de la Torre de Serranos, which identifies allegorically Valencia’s prison as the place of eternal damnation. We examine the literary context of all these testimonies and their relationship with Maluenda’s El infierno, the edition of which is added at the end of this paper.
