About the Author: Pedro Calderón de la Barca

Pedro Calderón de la Barca y Henao was a dramatist of the Spanish Golden Age.

Calderón initiated what has been called the second cycle of Spanish Golden Age theatre. Whereas his predecessor, Lope de Vega, pioneered the dramatic forms and genres of Spanish Golden Age theatre, Calderón polished and perfected them. Whereas Lope's strength lay in the sponteneity and naturalness of his work, Calderón's strength lay in his capacity for poetic beauty, dramatic structure and philosophical depth. Calderón was a perfectionist who often revisited and reworked his plays, even long after they debuted. This perfectionism was not just limited to his own work: many of his plays rework existing plays or scenes by other dramatists, improving their depth, complexity, and unity. (Many European playwrights of the time, such as Molière, Corneille and Shakespeare, reworked old plays in this way.) Calderón excelled above all others in the genre of the "auto sacramental", in which he showed a seemingly inexhaustible capacity to giving new dramatic forms to a given set of theological constructs. Calderón wrote 120 "comedias", 80 "autos sacramentales" and 20 short comedic works called "entremeses"

Las comedias de capa y espada son la rama del teatro de Calderón que más se asemeja al de Lope. Calderón simplificó las tramas de sus comedias y les dio mayor vigor narrativa suprimiendo las escenas públicas que tanto gustaban a Lope y a su generación. El eje de la acción suele ser el amor, los celos y el honor. Los personajes se mueven de acuerdo con el decoro de su nivel social y la acción se funda en el equívoco. Es el caso de La dama duente;El astrólogo fingido;Casa con dos puertas, mala es de guardar;Hombre pobre, todo es trazas;El alcaide de sí mismo;Guárdate del agua mansa o No hay burlas con el amor.
