Fredierico Garcia Lorca trans John Clifford

Published by Nick Hern Books

Written in 1934, Yerma is set in rural Southern Spain, where Lorca grew up

As in his other masterpieces, Blood Wedding and The House of Bernarda Alba, the play's main character falls victim to an overwhelming passion they cannot control

In Yerma - which means 'barren' - a woman longs to have a child by her reluctant husband

Although remaining faithful to him despite her attraction to another man, she eventually murders him in a climactic frenzy

Newly translated and introduced by John Clifford, this is the least expensive edition on the market and ideal for study and performance
