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 (1600-1681).
Calderón's long life witnessed both the pinnacle and collapse of
Spanish political power as well as the great flowering of Spanish
classical literature. Michael Kidd's new prose translation renders
Calderón's masterpiece 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.
