The paper draws on two papers written by Dunja Fališevac - on aged Freud’s visit to Marin Držić, and on the resigned renaissance “hero” Tripče - but also on the hypothesis that renaissance comedies “simultaneously educe two different, well arranged sequences: narration and rhetorical argument” (Jill Levenson) as well as the three stages of male-female relationship which Steven Greenblatt names “proposal, marriage and penance”. The paper analyzes courtship and proposal patterns in Grižula and Skup (peripherally also in Dundo Maroje), a staged wedding in Arkulin and “unwilling marriages” as “penance” in the comedy Tripče de Utolče. The analysis focuses on their amusing and comic features.
