“Three things tell a man: his eyes, his friends and his favorite quotes.”
Lope de Vega (Spanish Playwright)
Date of Birth:
25 November 1562
Date of Death:
27 August 1635
Lope de Vega was a Spanish Baroque playwright and poet. His reputation in the world of Spanish letters is second only to that of Cervantes, while the sheer volume of his literary output is unequalled: he is estimated to have written between 1,500 and 2,500 fully-fledged plays – of which some 425 have survived until the modern day – together with a plethora of shorter dramatic and poetic works.
