His varied career as a playwright, courtier, soldier and priest placed him at the heart of Spanish culture, and he reflected on contemporary events in his plays, most famously La vida es sueno (Life is a Dream). In this scholarly biography of Calderon in English, Don Cruickshank uses his command of the archival sources and his unparalleled understanding of Calderons work to chart his life and his political, literary and religious contexts. In addition, the book includes much fresh research into Calderons writings and their attributions. This elegant, erudite work will bring Calderon to a new audience both within and beyond Spanish studies.

With illustrations, extensive notes and a detailed index, this is the most comprehensive English-language book on Calderon, and it will long remain the key work of reference on this important author.
