The House of Bernarda Alba and Other Plays
Federico Garcia Lorca
Publisher:Penguin Books Ltd
In “The House of Bernarda Alba”, a tyrannical matriarch rules over her house and five daughters, cruelly crushing their hopes and needs. The other plays here also portray female characters whose desires are tragically and violently frustrated: a woman's longing for a child in “Yerma”, and a bride's yearning for her lover in “Blood Wedding”. All appeal for freedom and sexual and social equality, and are also passionate defences of the imagination: in Christopher Maurer's words, 'poetic drama unsurpassed by any writer of our time'.
