The Life of Lope de Vegat
The Great Spanlgh Dramatlstl
By HUGO A. RENNERT'
lrrlîcstct of R.rn',tlc Lctqueg'cs and Lllcrafurt in llu Uni?cltit! ( Pcanttktanb.
ù

Tnp,nr has been no life of Lope de Vega published in
English since that by Lord Holland nearly roo ycars ago.
Professor Rennert has bcen able to take adventage oftbe labours of all previous vorkers in the samc field' and bas in addition been fortunatc above all his prcdacesrors in that documents were published for the first timc within thc lrrst few yearr by Seflor Pérez Pastor, which threw a flood of ligbt on many dark points in Lope's caroerHc has made full use of dl fresb date, and har endervoured to rccord every known fact in thc life of thc poet. His biography is therefore the most thorough yet pubtished, and in the opinion of Mr. Fitzmaurice'Kelly' the leading English euthority, his biography is the standard life.

It

is consequently indispcnseblc to every important library'
