A metaphor for authority and oppression Is authority justified in oppressing us because it believes we would bring disaster if empoweredLying about our weakness authority manages to keep us unaware until it betrays what little it has left of humanity and gives us a degree of freedom When we experience that freedom this discovery of our limited freedoms make us violent and we rageHorrified and certain of the truthfulness of their fears authority has us drugged and returned to our prisons We mourn believing everything to be nothing than a spectacleThough we remain oblivious in our cells some have really discovered our plight and would like to break us out of prison the revolutionaries Though we will probably rejoice if this happens we cannot be sure whether this new development would be in fact reality or still just another spectacleThe rebels persist though and raise an army of the people Together the rebels defeat the authority but the people still need their chosen leader The newly ‘liberated’ leader decides not to take the old authority’s life The book naively presumes that the authority would be moved at this gesture and proclaim the son heir The chosen resolves to live by acknowledging that one must strive for goodness in both dream and realityA book that reveals a need for the archetypal hero who fights for freedom in this case a uixotic character unsure of what is real and what is not a romantic appeal to a non violent revolution freeing us from an over emphasis on mystification opening up a new degree of freedom that of reality But allowing us still the freedom that is given by the spirit of the myth the ideal the archetype the unconscious the immaterial the imaginatory the romantic the spectacle and ultimately art in all its gloryGoodness in reality and in dream The creation of a dialectic between dream and reality between the unconscious and the conscious through the gain of social power One is only left to wonder if social inclusion will follow from this new leader or will it simply be a new authority

The masterwork of Spain’s preeminent dramatist now in a new verse translation Life Is a Dream is a work many hold to be the supreme example of Spanish Golden Age drama Imbued with highly poetic language and humanist ideals it is an allegory that considers contendin. This book has to be the most amazing play that I've ever read There are those that say that Pedro Calderon is second only to the great William Shakespeare in terms of playwright but I have to say that I think that Pedro's writing at the very least matches ShakespeareDon't get me wrong When properly translated Shakespearian writing can have a profound and powerful effect the likes of which are scarcely recreated in contemporary writing but I feel the same can be said of Pedro CalderonI recommend this book to anyone who has wondered about the substance of their existence about what makes their reality concrete than any other or who just enjoys intense fits of philosophy inspired by intense bits of text

La vida es sueñoHis father to thwart fate Meanwhile a noblewoman arrives to seek revenge against the man who deceived and forsook her love for the prospect of becoming king of Poland Richly symbolic and metaphorical Life Is a Dream explores the deepest mysteries of human experience. I'm not usually so much impressed by theatre plays but this onethis one was very good I read it with so much curiosity and the plot is really interesting It was the first Spanish theatre play I've read and I didn't expect it to impress me so much Only Shakespeare and Dryden have done this to me before xD When they released Segismundo and after having commited murder and threats and took him back in the tower at that point I prefigured what will happen I already imagined that he will realise how bad he acted and that he will come on the right pathWhat I enjoyed the most was of course the changing of heart of the principal character the theme about life being a dream FA by many of us I suppose at some point in life and the verses So so beautiful verses full of meaning and teaching about life Interesting how he looked innocent in the first act then totally ravishing in the second and in the last act surprisingly goodI regret so much not having read it in Spanish but I will one day When I won't be so much pressed about time
