    • Abstract:
      The article presents a criticism of the play "El medico de su honra," by Pedro Calderon de la Barca and its representation of justice. An overview of the play's ending is given, highlighting its morally ambiguous thematic portrayal of the justice required for a murder. Various interpretations of the play's final statements are given, asserting that there is no complex paradox, but that it follows the standard literary conventions of Spanish comedy.
