A bit about Pedro Calderon de la Barca ...

Pedro Caldern de la Barca (January 17, 1600 May 25, 1681), Spanish dramatist and poet, was born in Madrid. His mother, who was of Flemish descent, died in 1610; his father, who was secretary to the treasury, died in 1615. Caldern was educated at the Jesuit College in Madrid with a view to taking orders and accepting a family living; abandoning this project, he studied law at Salamanca.
