Drama. In Spanish and English, translated by William I. Oliver. Lope de Vega, the most renowned playwright of the Spanish Golden Age (sixteenth and seventeenth centuries), was said to have written over 1,800 plays in verse. His life outside letters was so filled with romantic escapades, marital infidelities, and political and artistic disputes that the lives of his heroes paled by comparison. LADY NITWIT/LA DAMA BOBA is a perceptive character study of a female scatterbrain made wise in the ways of the world through the power of love. The plot moves from one delightfully comic situation to another, evoking the contradictions encountered in the course of love. The dialogue sparkles with humor and repartee. The ear of the translator always has the actors' and spectators' interests in mind. The wit sparkles. The characterizations are true ... I hope I get to see a production of this translation on stage. It would be a delight! -- David Glitz, University of Rhode Island.
