"The Capulets and the Montagues," by Lope de Vega, translated by Dakin Matthews
THE CAPULETS AND THE MONTAGUES is Dakin Matthews’ new rhyming verse translation of Lope de Vega’s play Castelvines y Monteses (c. 1609). Based on the same source material Shakespeare used for his Romeo and Juliet, Lope brings the audience on a different journey in his tale of the famous star-crossed lovers.
