    "I dream that I am here
    of these imprisonments charged,
    and I dreamed that in another state
    happier I saw myself.
    What is life? A frenzy.
    What is life? An illusion,
    A shadow, a fiction,
    And the greatest profit is small;
    For all of life is a dream,
    And dreams, are nothing but dreams."
    ______
    Life is a Dream is one of Calderón's most well known and well studied works.

    A few central ideas constitute the major philosophical themes of the play: the opposition between destiny and liberty, the topic of life as a dream, and the theme of free will.

    Focusing on Segismundo's line, "Y los sueños, sueños son," a more accurate English translation, better representing Calderon's poetic and philosophical intent, may be given as: "And dreams themselves are merely the dreams of dreams," implying and underscoring the ephemeral nature of human life and physical existence.
