Lope de Vega (1562-1635), widely regarded as the architect of the drama of the Spanish Golden Age, created plots and characters notable for their energy, inventiveness, and dramatic power. This unique edition includes his most famous play, Fuente Ovejuna, as well as The Knight from Olmedo and Punishment without Revenge. Presented here in superb translation, these plays embody the very best of Lope's dramatic art.
Lope de Vega created plots and characters notable for their energy and dramatic power, which combine the serious and comic. The first reveals how tyranny leads to rebellion, the second about passion ending in death. And the final play centres on the relationship of a young wife with her stepson.
