Drama Classics: The World's Great Plays at a Great Little Price

A masterpiece by one of the greatest writers of the Spanish Golden Age.

When the people of the town of Fuente Ovejuna revolt against their tyrannical overlord and murder him, the authorities attempt to find out who is responsible, leading to one of the most memorable acts of resistance in world drama.

First published in Madrid in 1619, Lope de Vega's play Fuente Ovejuna is believed to have been written between 1612 and 1614.

This edition in the Nick Hern Books Drama Classics series is an English translation by Laurence Boswell.
