SIR,—In the Spectator for January 31 Mr. J. M. Cohen

refers to the Oxford production of Calderon's Life is a Dream as `This first presentation in England of one of the most famous plays of the Spanish classical theatre.' This statement is not quite correct. I myself saw a production of the play in Cambridge more than twenty years ago. It was given, in Spanish, by the University Spanish Society.—Yours faithfully,
