“O Grande Teatro do Mundo” is the culmination of the baroque dramatic poetry. The uniqueness of this work is due to the fact of embodying, better than any other, the aesthetics and poetics of the Baroque; the scenic quality of the archetype piece is representative of the purest and most refined concept of Baroque art in all its fullness and greatness.
The seventeenth century theatrical overflow “should lead to the conscience of all, the feeling that life is itself a representation, that the world is a theatre” (Orozco), and Calderon the architect of this scenic theatrical era: the most symbolic playwright of the Baroque .
