de Vega: Plays Two

Lope de Vega

Translated by John Osborne, Michael Jacobs
PaperBack (11 Dec 2002)

A Bond Honoured translated by John Osborne

The Labyrinth of Desire translated by Michael Jacobs

John Osborne’s highly-rated version of A Bond Honoured preserves Lope’s distinctive voice but is also infused with Osborne’s own obsessions. The result is powerful and effecting drama: a protagonist of cruel and merciless passions, a rapist and murderer, chances to meet Christ who then encourages the man to hang himself.

The Labyrinth of Desire, a court drama about love and honour, that is in fact a provocative and witty comment on the emotional labyrinth that was Lope de Vega’s own life.
