Criticas
This immortal play, written around 1635 by the playwright who dominated Spain's golden age of theater, explores the conflict between free will and predestination. Calderon de la Barca (1600-81) tells the story of the king of Poland who imprisoned his son in a tower to prevent the predictions of astrologers, who saw the boy taking his father's throne, from coming true. After several years, the king has a change of heart, drugs his son, and takes him to the palace for a trial. But his son behaves so badly that the king puts him back in the tower. Soon, however, a peasant uprising liberates the prisoner and puts him on the throne. Fearful of waking once more in the tower, he conducts himself with discretion this time.
