PEDRO CALDERON DE LA BARCA (1600-1681) was one of the leading dramatists of the Spanish Golden Age. His father was Secretary to the Royal Treasury and a minor noble, and his mother was a devoutly religious woman who died when he was a child. Calderón studied canon law in preparation for his presumed career in the church, but in the 1620s he started to write verse, and his success in competitions attracted attention. The first known staging of one of his plays was a 1623 performance of Amor, Honor, Poder (Love, Honor, and Power).

By pedro calderon de la barca. Translated by edward fitzgerald. Pedro Calderon de la Barca was born in Madrid, January 17, 1600, of good family. He was educated at the Jesuit College in Madrid and at the University of Salamanca; and a doubtful tradition says that he began to write plays at the age of thirteen. His literary activity was interrupted for ten years, 1625-1635, by military service in Italy and the Low Countries, and again for a year or more in Catalonia.

Life is a Dream is a philosophical allegory regarding the human situation and the mystery of life. Focusing on Segismundo, Prince of Poland, the central argument is the conflict between free will and fate. The play remains one of Calderón's best-known and most studied works. One fee.

Though his plays are laid in a great variety of scenes and ages, the sentiment and the characters remain essentially Spanish; and this intensely local quality has probably lessened the vogue of Calderon in other countries. Of all Calderon's works, "Life is a Dream" may be regarded as the most universal in its theme. It seeks to teach a lesson that may be learned from the philosophers and religious thinkers of many ages-that the world of our senses is a mere shadow, and that the only reality is to be found in the invisible and eternal.

Life Is a Dream book

Life Is a Dream book. The masterwork of Spain’s preeminent dramatist-now in a new verse. I thought this would be a perfect play for prisoners to read because of the themes of prison and the lead character having spent his whole life in prison. It was indeed a great play to teach and discuss with them, and I also found a play that was new to me and that I liked a whole bunch. Can't wait to see it from a company in the future. After putting it off for years, I finally read Pedro Calderon de la Barca's Life is a Dream, translated from the Spanish into elegant rhymed pentameter by Dr. Gregary J. Racz.

This book definitely looks like a bootleg version of the real Penguin Classics book. I bought this shipped Prime with Amazon as the seller, but I own many Penguin Classics and this is not that same soft cover like the rest. The cover does not appear the way it does in the picture. The cover and back text is blurry, and the front image is cropped. Also all of the text is not aligned the way a legitimate book would be. It's crooked.

This play is a hidden gem. Calderon has written a classic comedy that follows the formula but ventures into classic philosophy as well: what is our life? Is it real? Is it a dream? If it is a dream, how then should we live our lives? This is the center of Oedipus Rex, with its fate versus free will theme, and Calderon explores it with humor and compassion. The Dover edition is inexpensive but doesn't cut corners, making it perfect for college students. I highly recommend it!

This was a very good transaction, and a classic read. My son needed to read this story for a school report, and found the story impressive.

A great comedic play that offers a wonderful (and unexpected) meditation on what dreaming actually is.

"What is life? An illusion, a shadow, a story, And the greatest good is little enough: for all life is a dream, and dreams themselves are only dreams"

The book looks like a pirated version of the penguin classics. The cover image is very blur

required for school but a good read.

I had to read this for world lit and I'm not sure why it's considered a masterpiece.
