Lope de Vega

Original title


A play by Lope de Vega, which tells the story of the uprising of ordinary people against the abuses of their feudal lord.

One of the great dramas by Lope de Vega, written in 1610 and published for the first time in the "Docena parte de las comedias de Lope de Vega Carpio" compilation in 1619.

"Fuenteovejuna" is a pedagogical tale of bravery, set in the time of the Catholic Monarchs. It tells the story of a social conflict between a feudal lord and his vassals. The main storyline is the uprising of the people, who want justice because the commander abused his power. The last straw was when the commander exercised his droit de seigneur with young Laurencia. But the play also deals with the themes of love and reflections on men's ambitions.
