  • Notes on Playwrights

Pedro Calderón de la Barca (1600–1681) succeeded Lope de Vega as the most prominent Spanish playwright of the Golden Age. His best-known secular dramas include Life Is a Dream, The Surgeon of His Honor, The Mayor of Zalamea, and The Daughter of Air.

Heinrich von Kleist (1777–1811) was the author of Romantic dramas, including The Schroffenstein Family, Amphitryon, The Broken Jug, and The Prince of Homburg.

Molière (1612–1673), born Jean-Baptiste Poquelin, provoked the seventeenth-century French sacred and secular authorities and audiences with comic works, including The School for Wives, Tartuffe, Don Juan, and The Misanthrope. [End Page iv]
