Federico Garcia Lorca - Spanish & English text with Commentary & Notes - trans Gwynne Edwards

Published by Methuen

Bernarda Alba is a widow, and her five daughters are incarcerated in mourning along with her

One by one they make a bid for freedom, with tragic consequences

Lorca's tale depicts the repression of women within Catholic Spain in the years before the war

The House of Bernarda Alba is Lorca's last and possibly finest play, completed shortly before he was murdered by Nationalist sympathisers at the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War

Inspired by real characters and described by the author as 'a true record of village life', it is a tragic tale of frustration and explosive passions in a household of women rulled by a tyrannical mother

Edited with invaluable student notes - a must for students of Spanish drama
