"In the early Ming Dynasty, Neo-Confucianism was promoted to the supreme position in order to strengthen the autocracy of the monarch. Human nature urgently needed to express itself under such high pressure. The Peony Pavilion just reflected the author's liberation of personality. In addition, its exquisite and elegant diction, characterization and imagination are amazing," Relinque said.

The Spanish edition of the play was published by the Chinese Culture Center in Madrid in 2016 and was translated by Relinque, who is the foreign dean of the Confucius Institute of Granada University. She has devoted herself to the research and translation of classical Chinese literature. Her academic achievements and translated works are of great significance to the study of Chinese literature in Spanish-speaking regions and countries. She won the 11th Special Book Award of China.
