Item Information

Title:
Hispaniae veteris descriptio
Title (alt.):
Collection of old maps
Description:
Set in the kingdom of Navarre, Spain, Love's Labour's Lost is a romantic comedy about four young Spanish men, who, despite their best efforts to avoid romance and focus on their studies, fall in love with four French women. The play appears to be an original by Shakespeare, and may have been written for a specific, private audience in mind. As illustrated in this 1638 map, Renaissance-era Spain was a place of numerous separate kingdoms, ruled by different heads of state. Navarre and bordering France had a tenuous relationship, as did Navarre with neighboring Spanish kingdoms.
