A fop? In this brave, licentious age To bring his musty morals on the stage? Rhime us to reason? and our lives redress In metre, as Druids did the savages.

Actually by Coello — not Calderón.

“Antonio Coello (October 26th 1611, Madrid - October 20th 1652, Madrid) was a Spanish dramatist and poet. […] The best of his original plays, “Los Empenos de seis horas”, has been wrongly ascribed to Calderón; it was adapted by Samuel Tuke, under the title of The Adventures of five Hours, and was described by Pepys as superior to Othello. - It is an excellent example of stagecraft and animated dialogue. Coello died on the 20th of October 1652.”
