Description - The House of Bernarda Alba and Other Plays by Federico Garcia Lorca
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'.
