Blood Wedding. Concerned with love that cannot become marriage among the primitive hill people of Castile, this is a play of the workings of tremendous passions and tribal ritual toward an inescapable tragic end. Yerma. “The whole tragic burden of Yerma is measured by the deepening of her struggle with the problem of frustrated motherhood.” —From García Lorca, by Edwin Honig. The House of Bernarda Alba. Again about “women whom love moves to tragedy,” Bernarda Alba tells of the repression of five daughters by a domineering mother, of how their natural spirits circumvent her but bring violence and death.
Francisco García Lorca (1902 - 1976) was a Spanish writer and historian, younger brother of Federico García Lorca.

Editorial Reviews

Lorca is such a virtuoso of the theatre that he can use and control all its resources to present his poetic vision. — Kenyon Review
