Lope de Vega (1562-1635), the architect of the drama of the Spanish Golden Age, created plots and characters notable for their energy, inventiveness and dramatic power, and which, in contrast to French classical drama, combine the serious and the comic in their desire to imitate life. This unique edition combines Lope's best-known play Fuente Ovejuna, The Knight from Olmedo and Punishment without Revenge. These three plays, grouped here in translations which are faithful to the original Spanish, vivid and intended for performance, embody the very best of Lope's dramatic art.

  • * The only paperback edition of Lope de Vega's major plays
  • Situates Lope de Vega in the context of Golden Age theatre with attention to contemporary staging
