The Spanish code of honor and the mystery of holy rituals are at the forefront of Pedro Calderon de la Barca's poetic dramas. This program surveys Calderon's achievements in the secular and religious theater of 17th-century Spain, highlighting his renown as an innovator. Recounting his family background and the influence of Lope de Vega on his choice of themes and subject matter, the video illustrates the importance of the auto sacramental in Calderon's oeuvre and the complexity of the honor tragedies and comedies he perfected. Additional material on his military and priesthood service complete this biography of the man who came to be known as Spain's Shakespeare.
