It has come to my attention that my note on contested legitimacy in Fuente Ovejuna has now entered the search categories of Google. I have several things to say about this. First, whomever has come on to my blog in search of wisdom about Fuente Ovejuna, welcome, and I hope you stick around, read some, and subscribe. However, I would like to know what precisely you have come in search of. Fuente Ovejuna is an obscure play, at least for English speaking folks like myself, and it must be a rare literature student (and probably fellow Spanish-Speaker) who is interested in the material. I would be curious to know, if you have come here looking for information on Lope de Vega’s excellent play, if you have found what you were looking for.
I would also like to point out something else, though. If you are doing a homework assignment on Fuente Ovejuna and like what I have to say, I request a citation. If you don’t know how to site it, send me a short note or reply and I’ll dig one up for you in the appropriate style (most of my citations, since I am a historian, are in the Chicago Style, but I have had to use APA and MLA style before as well). So, if you find my analysis useful and you use it, make sure to give credit where credit is due.
Thus concludes this public service announcement.
