Felix Lope de Vega Carpio, the renowned Spanish dramatic poet born in 1562, wrote an estimated 1,500 plays - not to speak of countless poems, epics, and prose works. Of these 1,500 plays about 500 survive. De Vega penned his first drama at the age of 11 while a student at a Jesuit school. From that moment on, he poured out a torrent of theatrical works the like of which has never been equaled.

Really? I honestly have never read any. lol. I was just impressed with the sheer ammount that he wrote. I figured he might not have been so fantastic as I never had him as required reading in any drama classes I took
