O’Connell, with an illuminating biographical introduction by the poet’s brother, Francisco García Lorca, are three tragic dramas by the great modern Spanish poet and playwright which have caught the imagination and won the critical acclaim of the literate world.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.

    You can lose to read this incredible plays

    I can define this books, because they are so full of, I don´t know, intrigue, tragedy, passion, feelings so intense that if you like the tragedy genre, you will love this 3 books. Blood Wedding, just incredible, is full of life, full of reality, the characters they are all move by a feeling, a memory, and revenge is basic. The House of Bernard Alba, also so real, a mother so disciplined, and the daughters that want to reveal but his love for her mother keeps them in the house. So frustrating that you can see what they feel. Just excellente
