The House of Bernarda Alba and Other Plays, Paperback / softback Book

The House of Bernarda Alba and Other Plays Paperback / softback

Part of the Penguin Modern Classics series

Paperback / softback

Description

In The House of Bernarda Alba, a tyrannical matriarch rules over her house and five daughters, cruelly crushing their hopes and needs.

The other plays here also portray female characters whose desires are tragically and violently frustrated: a woman's longing for a child in Yerma, and a bride's yearning for her lover in Blood Wedding.

All appeal for freedom and sexual and social equality, and are also passionate defences of the imagination: in Christopher Maurer's words, 'poetic drama unsurpassed by any writer of our time'.
