It also discusses his greatest works: Los Cabellos de Absalon – its comparison with La Venganza de Tamar; its interpretation; the text; summary of verse forms used; and select bibliography for further reading. The book also includes an untranslated Spanish version of the play itself. The text will appeal to literary experts and historians who want to learn more about the life of Pedro Calderon de la Barca, his work Los Cabellos de Absalon, its comparison to Tirso's La Venganza de Tamar, and the interpretation of his play.
