From de la Barca I was recommended by Ford Maddox Ford the following two titles which I'm clearly incompetent to identify. Coming in to this, I have a general familiarity with the course of early modern Spanish history: its manic, genocidal expansion of itself into the lands of the Indigenous people of the Americas and its economy's subsequent over-reliance on gold and silver imports in contrast to the paucity of the peninsula's agricultural resources; the zealous and bloodthirsty form of national.

Among his best-known secular dramas are El médico de su honra (1635; Th. . Among his best-known secular dramas are El médico de su honra (1635; The Surgeon of His Honour), La vida es sueño (1635; Life Is a Dream), El alcalde de Zalamea (c. 1640; The Mayor of Zalamea), and La hija del aire (1653; The Daughter of the Air ), sometimes considered his masterpiece.

He was ordained in 1651, and became a priest at San Salvador at Madrid. He was appointed honorary chaplain to Philip IV in 1663, and continued as chaplain to his successor.

A beautiful and haunting tale of love, betrayal, knowledge, and power, Life’s a Dream (La vida es sueño, 1636) is the best known and most widely admired play of Catholic Europe’s greatest dramatist, Pedro Calderón de la Barca. Calderón’s long life (1600–1681) witnessed both the pinnacle and collapse of Spanish political power as well as the great flowering of Spanish classical literature.

Despite its longtime place atop the Hispanic canon, Calderón’s masterpiece remains relatively unknown by general readers outside the Spanish-speaking world. Michael Kidd’s new prose translation aims to correct this deficiency by rendering the play into a transparent, modern American idiom that preserves the beauty and complexity of Calderón’s Baroque Spanish. The result is a highly readable and adaptable text that is enhanced by a generous selection of supporting materials, including a thorough critical introduction and glossary.

Fomand
A great translation for readers that are looking to understand the characters and the story. It's a prose translation of a play written in a verse, but by choosing to translate the IDEAS rather than the METER it makes it much more accessible to a reader (and possibly an audience). If you prefer reading a verse translation then this isn't for you.

Informative introduction, well-researched and deep background, and then one of the world's great plays written in verse translated ... in prose. Not one line of verse, when the original is all in verse. What's the point? This translation should never have been published. It makes perfect sense, and is readable, but can you imagine reading "Oedipus" or "Hamlet" as prose?
