    " The crossdressing and misrecognition of characters by other characters created a true farcical understanding of the characters. Furthermore, the relevance of a dream-like state forces one to consider the rules of reality, the rules of irreality, while also deciphering who determines what is reality. A true Renaissance text.

    " It was interesting to read a play, havent done so in ages. the protagonist sways wildly in his moods, as a prisoner and freed man it should be so, as well as his apt insight on what reality can be, which in most cases is just a dream. a theatrical representation of what i happened to have read in osho's book awareness actually. good short read!

    " This was a hard book to read. The translator's attempt at recreating Spanish theater poetry (think Spanish Shakespeare) falls flat. I've got a hard enough time reading poetry without the forced verse and rhyme scheme. It just felt very artificial to me. There's worth to the play, but I may seek out a different translation if I decide to reread it. "
