Overview

Yerma (1934) es una obra teatral popular escrita por Federico García Lorca que desarrolla una tragedia de ambiente rural. Está dividida en tres actos de dos cuadros cada uno. Es una de las tres obras de teatro que forman parte de la "trilogía lorquiana", junto con La casa de Bernarda Alba (1936) y Bodas de sangre (1933).
El tema principal es instinto frente a represión, ya que Yerma lucha porque su instinto le dice que debe ser madre, pero no lo logra, y por eso termina odiándose. Por un lado, a través de un gesto radical, se libera de la esterilidad de Juan aunque no de su tragedia personal. Por otra parte, la determinación de Yerma de matar a Juan obedece en parte a su deseo de cumplir con una función impuesta por la sociedad; quiere tener hijos como las mujeres casadas que viven a su alrededor.
Consciente del éxito del drama rural de teatro, Lorca elabora estas tragedias basándose en una conjugación de mito, poesía y sustancia real, tratando de retratar a una mujer a su vez oprimida y segura de sí misma.
