Meixell’s research focuses on the Spanish Golden Age, especially Cervantes and Golden Age Theater. She examines the influence of medieval literature and traditions, with an emphasis on Arthurian romance and the figure of Merlin. Recent publications include “The Quest for Identity at the Onset of the Age of Reason: Calderón’s Hado y divisa de Leonido y Marfisa” and “A Pro-feminine Golden-Age Adaptation of the Classic Female Creation Myth: Calderón’s La estatua de Prometeo and the Construction of Female Identity," both in the Bulletin of the Comediantes.
