About the Author

Lope de Vega (1562-1635), acknowledged as Spain's most lyrical and energetic dramatist, was a prolific and complusive writer. He treated an enormous range of subjects, often mingling comedy with tragedy, to the horror of the classicists, and defended his methods in his 'Arte nuevo de hacer comedias en este tiempe', published in 1609. Micheal Jacobs was born in Italy and studied art history at the Courtauld Insitute, London. He then became a teacher and acclaimed travel writer. He is general editor for a series of volumes of Lope de Vega plays for Oberon Books. Plays Two includes his own translation of The Labyrinth of Desire and John Osborne's version of A Bond Honoured.
