'The wizard who fashioned a labyrinth and was then doomed to wander in it' ('El hechicero que teje un laberinto y que se ve forzado a errar en él')

Fishburn and Hughes: Perhaps an allusion to the myth of Daedalus. Daedalus, on the orders of King Minos, constructed a labyrinth for the Minotaur to live in and trap his victims. Fearing that Daedalus would reveal the secret of his design, Minos imprisoned him in the labyrinth with his son Icarus. Daedalus thereupon made wings for himself and his son, and they both flew out of the labyrinth. Deutsches Requiem
