La Vida es Sueño (Spanish Edition)

L. a. concepción de los angeles vida como un sueño es muy antigua, existiendo referencias en el pensamiento hindú, los angeles mística persa, los angeles ethical budista, los angeles tradición judeo-cristiana y los angeles filosofía griega. Por eso ha sido considerada incluso un tópico literario. Según Platón, el hombre vive en un mundo de sueños, de tinieblas, cautivo en una cueva de los angeles que sólo podrá liberarse tendiendo hacia el Bien; únicamente entonces el hombre desistirá de l. a. materia y llegará a l. a. luz. El influjo de esta concepción platónica en los angeles obra es evidente: Segismundo vive en un principio dentro de una cárcel, de una caverna, donde permanece en los angeles más completa oscuridad por el desconocimiento de sí mismo; sólo cuando es capaz de saber quién es, consigue el triunfo, los angeles luz. Calderón, muy cabalmente, undertakeó l. a. forma del drama filosófico para abordar un gran caudal de temas confluyentes en este foco y en este tópico literario, platónico en su raíz occidental: Como drama religioso, aborda los problemas de caída o pecado unique y expiación Como poema filosófico, resuelve el destino del hombre y los angeles fuente del conocimiento y los problemas aparejados del libre albedrío y los angeles predestinación. Como lección ethical propia del barroco y l. a. Contrarreforma, desengaña sobre las ilusiones y las vanidades de este mundo. Como drama educativo y poético, instruye sobre lo que es el hombre sin el freno de l. a. educación. Como protesta revolucionaria, ataca el principio absolutista y ajurídico de los angeles orden reservada que sofoca l. a. libertad bajo el pretexto de evitar sus extravíos. Como lección política "porque en batallas stories / los que vencen son leales / los vencidos, los traidores", enseña a los pueblos a lo que conduce el mal uso de l. a. libertad y las guerras civiles (en las que el propio Calderón tomó partido por l. a. unidad contra Cataluña). Combate, además, l. a. locura de los presagios y juicios de l. a. astrología. Describe los progresos que realiza el hombre y l. a. humanidad entre desengaños y deseos. Prueba que las pasiones comprimidas por un ascetismo no libre, sino forzado, estallan con tanta más fuerza cuanto mayor es l. a. represión Desde un criterio psicoanalítico, expresa l. a. superación o sublimación de los conflictos edípicos Inspira a l. a. filosofía del solipsismo que ha negado realidad al mundo exterior... Todo esto y mucho más, si más se examina, es l. a. vida es sueño.
