Pedro Calder n de la Barca y Henao was a dramatist of the Spanish Golden AgeCalder n initiated what has been called the second cycle of Spanish Golden Age theatre Whereas his predecessor, Lope de Vega, pioneered the dramatic forms and genres of Spanish Golden Age theatre, Calder n polished and perfected them Whereas Lope s strength lay in the sponteneity and naturalness of his work, Calder n s strength lay in his capacity for poetic beauty, dramatic structure and philosophical depth Calder n was a perfectionist who often revisited and reworked his plays, even long after they La vida Kindle - debuted This perfectionism was not just limited to his own work many of his plays rework existing plays or scenes by other dramatists, improving their depth, complexity, and unity Many European playwrights of the time, such as Moli re, Corneille and Shakespeare, reworked old plays in this way Calder n excelled above all others in the genre of the auto sacramental , in which he showed a seemingly inexhaustible capacity to giving new dramatic forms to a given set of theological constructs Calder n wrote comedias , autos sacramentales and short comedic works called entremeses.

    This book has to be the most amazing play that I ve ever read There are those that say that Pedro Calderon is second only to the great William Shakespeare, in terms of playwright, but I have to say that I think that Pedro s writing at the very least matches Shakespeare.Don t get me wrong When properly translated, Shakespearian writing can have a profound and powerful effect the likes of which are scarcely recreated in contemporary writing, but I feel the same can be said of Pedro Calderon.I re This book has to be the most amazing play that I ve ever read There are those that say that Pedro Calderon is second only to the great William Shakespeare, in terms of playwright, but I have to say that I think that Pedro s writing at the very least matches Shakespeare.Don t get me wrong When properly translated, Shakespearian writing can have a profound and powerful effect the likes of which are scarcely recreated in contemporary writing, but I feel the same can be said of Pedro Calderon.I recommend this book to anyone who has wondered about the substance of their existence, about what makes their realityconcrete than any other, or who just enjoys intense fits of philosophy inspired by intense bits of text

    A metaphor for authority and oppression Is authority justified in oppressing us because it believes we would bring disaster if empowered Lying about our weakness authority manages to keep us unaware until it betrays what little it has left of humanity and gives us a degree of freedom When we experience that freedom, this discovery of our limited freedoms make us violent, and we rage.Horrified and certain of the truthfulness of their fears, authority has us drugged and returned to our prisons A metaphor for authority and oppression Is authority justified in oppressing us because it believes we would bring disaster if empowered Lying about our weakness authority manages to keep us unaware until it betrays what little it has left of humanity and gives us a degree of freedom When we experience that freedom, this discovery of our limited freedoms make us violent, and we rage.Horrified and certain of the truthfulness of their fears, authority has us drugged and returned to our prisons We mourn, believing everything to be nothingthan a spectacle.Though we remain oblivious in our cells, some have really discovered our plight and would like to break us out of prison the revolutionaries Though we will probably rejoice if this happens, we cannot be sure whether this new development would be, in fact, reality or still just another spectacle.The rebels persist, though, and raise an army of the people Together the rebels defeat the authority, but the people still need their chosen leader The newly liberated leader decides not to take the old authority s life The book naively presumes that the authority would be moved at this gesture, and proclaim the son heir The chosen resolves to live by acknowledging that one must strive for goodness in both dream and reality.A book that reveals a need for the archetypal hero who fights for freedom, in this case a quixotic character unsure of what is real and what is not, a romantic appeal to a non violent revolution freeing us from an over emphasis on mystification, opening up a new degree of freedom, that of reality But allowing us still the freedom that is given by the spirit of the myth, the ideal, the archetype, the unconscious, the immaterial, the imaginatory, the romantic, the spectacle and ultimately art in all its glory.Goodness in reality and in dream The creation of a dialectic between dream and reality, between the unconscious and the conscious through the gain of social power One is only left to wonder if social inclusion will follow from this new leader or will it simply be a new authority

    I really enjoyed reading this play, the language is so beautiful and flowed so nice it was fun to read and I could follow the storyline quite well.This play is wrote in a way that once you begin reading the text is like an old song and you find its rhyming works very well.

    Clotaldo, Who guards my son with old fidelity, Shall bring him hither from his tower by night Lockt in a sleep so fast as by my art I rivet to within a link of death, But yet from death so far, that next day s dawn Shall wake him up upon the royal bed, Complete in consciousness and faculty, When with all princely pomp and retinue My loyal Peers with due obeisance Shall hail him Segismund, the Prince of Poland.Don t know what to rate this.I was eager to read the FitzGerald translation, but hi Clotaldo, Who guards my son with old fidelity, Shall bring him hither from his tower by night Lockt in a sleep so fast as by my art I rivet to within a link of death, But yet from death so far, that next day s dawn Shall wake him up upon the royal bed, Complete in consciousness and faculty, When with all princely pomp and retinue My loyal Peers with due obeisance Shall hail him Segismund, the Prince of Poland.Don t know what to rate this.I was eager to read the FitzGerald translation, but his version was not particularly enchanting or lyrical, not to speak of literal I m sure the quasi Shakespearean diction was appropriate to a Spanish Renaissance or early modern play, but in effect, it came off as bookish

    This play was first published in the 1600 s in Spain The translation I read at Project Gutenberg was published in 1873 The introduction by the translator included this information A note by Hartzenbusch in the last edition of the drama published at Madrid 1872 , tells that La Vida es Sueno , is founded on a story which turns out to be substantially the same as that with which English students are familiar as the foundation of the famous Induction to the Taming of the Shrew Calderon foundThis play was first published in the 1600 s in Spain The translation I read at Project Gutenberg was published in 1873 The introduction by the translator included this information A note by Hartzenbusch in the last edition of the drama published at Madrid 1872 , tells that La Vida es Sueno , is founded on a story which turns out to be substantially the same as that with which English students are familiar as the foundation of the famous Induction to the Taming of the Shrew Calderon found it however in a different work from that in which Shakespeare met with it, or rather his predecessor, the anonymous author of The Taming of a Shrew , whose work supplied to Shakespeare the materials of his own comedy.I have seen a movie version of The Taming Of The Shrew who could forget Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor but I don t remember ever reading the play itself It has been added to my Someday list now, though I will want to read that famous Induction for myself Meanwhile, back in Spain.no, back in Poland, since that is where our action takes place.we are introduced to Rosaura, who is a young lady masquerading as a man in order to get revenge for something which we do not learn until later She and her companion Clarin the requisite clownish servant stumble across the hidden tower where Prince Sigismund has been chained his entire life They are discovered by the nobleman Clotaldo, who takes them to the castle to turn them over to the King But there is a lot going on beneath the surface Clotaldo seems to recognize Rosaura, but why Why does the King, who is considered so wise, rely so much on astrology, and what troubles has that caused him and his country Why is Prince Sigismund a prisoner in the first place And the dream Just where does that come into the plot Does everyone get their heart s desire by the final curtain Or is it all just a dream This was a fun little romp, with some lovely phrases throughout, and a profound message about lifeand how to live it tossed out bit by bit in the final act I enjoyed the play, but I would like to read it in the original Spanish someday if possible There are some speeches with puns and wordplay in them that would sound much better in Spanish The translator completely changed a few lines in the last act because he did not like the original puns, which made sense in Spanish but not in English This can be a problem with Spanish, especially when it is spoken, because many words can be used in puns The translator added a footnote explaining what he did and why Calderon is another new author to me, but I want to exploreof his work I quote the wiki article Pedro Calder n de la Barca y Barreda Gonz lez de Henao Ruiz de Blasco y Ria o, usually referred as Pedro Calder n de la Barca17 January 1600 25 May 1681 , was a dramatist, poet and writer of the Spanish Golden Age During certain periods of his life he was also a soldier and a Roman Catholic priest Born when the Spanish Golden Age theatre was being defined by Lope de Vega, he developed it further, his work being regarded as the culmination of the Spanish Baroque theatre As such, he is regarded as one of Spain s foremost dramatists and one of the finest playwrights of world literature.

    I m not usually so much impressed by theatre plays, but this one,this one was very good I read it with so much curiosity and the plot is really interesting It was the first Spanish theatre play I ve read and I didn t expect it to impress me so much Only Shakespeare and Dryden have done this to me before xD When they released Segismundo and after having commited murder and threats and took him back in the tower, at that point I prefigured what will happen I already imagined that he will real I m not usually so much impressed by theatre plays, but this one,this one was very good I read it with so much curiosity and the plot is really interesting It was the first Spanish theatre play I ve read and I didn t expect it to impress me so much Only Shakespeare and Dryden have done this to me before xD When they released Segismundo and after having commited murder and threats and took him back in the tower, at that point I prefigured what will happen I already imagined that he will realise how bad he acted and that he will come on the right path.What I enjoyed the most was ,of course, the changing of heart of the principal character, the theme about life being a dream F.A.Q by many of us, I suppose, at some point in life and the verses So so beautiful verses, full of meaning and teaching about life Interesting how he looked innocent in the first act, then totally ravishing in the second, and in the last act surprisingly good.I regret so much not having read it in Spanish, but I will, one day When I won t be so much pressed about time

    Are you the fabulous hippogriff running in harness with the wind Flameless thunderbolt, featherless bird, fish without scales, Monster of the four elements without the instinct to check your headlong flight Dude wrote this play approximately one century post Shakespeare and Cervantes I was an infant then so I had to wait until now to read it.This is a well written piece about Kings and Ladies and their offspring and all that castle and aristocratic stuff that we have all come to read.Pretty, Are you the fabulous hippogriff running in harness with the wind Flameless thunderbolt, featherless bird, fish without scales, Monster of the four elements without the instinct to check your headlong flight Dude wrote this play approximately one century post Shakespeare and Cervantes I was an infant then so I had to wait until now to read it.This is a well written piece about Kings and Ladies and their offspring and all that castle and aristocratic stuff that we have all come to read.Pretty, pretty good as another David who uses it as his last name, would say

    I just re read this play yesterday as an option for the SUNY Sullivan season of 14 15 or in years to come I remember John Wilson in 1998 telling my class at Cornish that this was as perfect as a play could get and I ve read it several times and taught it twice, and I agree I think the next step is to read it in Spanish to get the sense of the Golden Age scansion and its acting rules, butalasI need to befluent in Spanishgoals, goals, goals Anyway, I think this is a play that s I just re read this play yesterday as an option for the SUNY Sullivan season of 14 15 or in years to come I remember John Wilson in 1998 telling my class at Cornish that this was as perfect as a play could get and I ve read it several times and taught it twice, and I agree I think the next step is to read it in Spanish to get the sense of the Golden Age scansion and its acting rules, butalasI need to befluent in Spanishgoals, goals, goals Anyway, I think this is a play that should be producedbecause A a woman gets to sword fight and it s not because she was nontraditionally cast B The philosophy of our lives being just a dream is a bit mind bending and existential before existential was a movementagainmind bending and C the dialectic on honor vs humanity is very engaging, and, surprisingly not boring
