    Muy Bonita

    Pub. Date: December 2004 Publisher: Bloomsbury USA The House of Bernarda Alba, originally La casa de Bernarda Alba was written by Federico Garcia Lorca. He was a Spanish poet, dramatist and theatre. The play was written as his last play before he died during the Spanish civil war. The play was first preformed in 1945. This drama is between the woman in the villages of spain, involving a family in mourning and love affairs. The setting takes place in a weathly family's home in the village of Andalusia. It engrosses in a mothers need to have power after her husband has died, and the daughters and servents feeling of opression. When suddenly a spark of romance is in ignited into the play. Then once again, another mourning. Lorca tries to convay the sexual tension, stress, and mourning there is in times of courtship dating in a small village, where status is very important to most. He makes the thoughts and actions of the characters very mysterious. Keeping you surprized, and in awe as to what is happening, and what could come next. When reading this book it feels like the charecters and setting are real, not so much like it's being watched from an audience. Though there are few stage directions, it's easy to picture the story, and stance of the performers. The intended audience of this book would be targeted to adults, it would not be suitable for children, and some young adults. The House of Bernarda Alba is written in a very traditional style. Many people can relate to this book because at times we all feel opressed, like many daughters and woman in this town. The dramatic choices that the characters make are just like the drama we used to or hear about in high school. The story line is short, but full and shocking. I feel the book has met it's goal. Although for me (I'm a young adult) it was a little hard to follow, once I figured out what was happening, I could feel what the charecters felt. I do not recomend this book if you're looking for something happy to read. Throughout the book I felt many overpowering emotions we face thoughout our lives. Depression, opression, love, guilt, arogance, and power. I was left with the feeling of being thankful, that my life wasn't that tramatic. I would rocomend this book to anyone who loves classic litature, history, or tragidties. This book isn't for everyone, but I do recomend it once an adult.
