"En la vida todo es verdad y todo mentira and Sueños hay que verdad son," by Pedro Calderón de la Barca, edited by John Slater and Harrison Meadows
This edition contains a pair of plays—one a comedia and the other an auto sacramental—which will help undergraduate students enjoy the work of Calderón. We hope that this book will help students understand more about a number of motifs that many readers associate with Calderón’s plays: dreaming, the limitations of the senses, and human beings’ ability to distinguish between what is real and what is not. Students interested in writing research papers or learning more about the sources of Calderón’s works will find these plays are an excellent point of departure.
