DetailsA king is suspicious of his son's role in an impending revolution.

Includes an excellent new English translation, with an informative introduction and footnotes.ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Pedro Calderón de la Barca y Barreda González de Henao Ruiz de Blasco y Riaño, usually referred as Pedro Calderón de la Barca, 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. Although not well known to the current English-speaking world, Calderón's plays were first adapted into English during the 17th century.
