Égloga de Fileno, Zambardo y Cardonio (Égloga 12) (1496-1509), Juan del Encina


It is a short, one-act play of 726 lines


It is set in the poetic ‘Arcadia’ of versifying shepherds. It could be done with minimal or no set, and the only truly necessary prop is a dagger or weapon with which Fileno kills himself.
