Fuenteovejuna by Lope de Vega - Summary
One of the major works of the Spanish theatre, a tyrannical nobleman violent with his subjects and a popular uprising that culminated in a just revenge. Women with great personalities, the strength of the people against the tyranny and a crime forgiven by the royal family makes Fuenteovejuna a legendary work.
Una de las obras fundamentales en la historia del teatro español. Un noble tiránico y abusivo con sus vasallos. Una sublevación popular que culmina en la justa venganza. Una acción que no deja descanso, mujeres con gran personalidad, la fuerza colectiva contra el despotismo, un crimen perdonado por los Reyes, hacen de Fuenteovejuna una pieza mítica.
