Kind of a blood-and-soil Spanish tragedy-of-manners with Lynchian flourishes, but it didn't really sell me on the idea that it views its cast as dignifiedly "rustic" and not (tho this word is from the Wikipedia article) merely "primitive." ( )

El valor vivo, el raro acierto de Garcìa Lorca està en la reinvenciòn de un estilo dramàtico y en la manera como, superando toda atadura, cualquier localismo geogràfico, eleva la acciòn tràgica a un plano universal. ( )

Too much folk songs. Great love/passion description. I would like to see it. ( )

Lindíssima peça, mas talvez não a melhor para se começar a ler Lorca - eu indicaria A Casa de Bernarda Alba - mas uma peça para mergulhar em sua poética, nos símbolos que o fascinam. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0571190065, Paperback)

Lorca's Blood Wedding is a classic of twentieth-century theatre. The story is based on a newspaper fragment which told of a family vendetta and a bride who ran away with the son of the enemy family. Lorca uses it to investigate the subjects which fascinated him: desire, repression, ritual, and the constraints and commitments of the rural Spanish community in which the play is rooted. Ted Hughes's version stays close in spirit and letter to the original Spanish. With marvellous directness, he fuses Lorca's vision to his own, and the result is a powerful poetic text which captures all the violence and pathos of the play for an English-speaking audience.
