Book Description:

La casa de Bernarda Alba cierra la trilogía de tragedias iniciada con Bodas de sangre y continuada con Yerma. La obra transcurre en un ámbito rural y tiene como protagonistas a una docena de mujeres. Pero el trasunto nada tiene que ver con el costumbrismo ni con la psicología femenina. El verdadero drama surge de la contraposición entre la ley clara que supuestamente rige en el mundo, y la ley oscura, o de la sangre, que ata con sus lazos inamovibles a quienes residen en ese hogar significativamente descrito por Lorca como 'muy blanco'. En el segundo acto, el hogar adquiere tonos sombríos, que se acentuarán en el tercero, decididamente negro-luto, y que tiene su contrapunto expresivo en la muerte de Adela, la mujer que transgredió las leyes de la sociedad y que paga con su vida tal atrevimiento.

Review:

'Professsor Ramsden gives very good value on the areas discussed. His analysis is exhaustive, scrupulously balanced and illuminating.' --"Bulletin of Hispanic Studies
'This edition's major contribution is the well-conceived and executed introduction. The reader is led on a step-by-step journey through the Lorca text as well as through the particular biographical circumstances that had an impact on the play. The presentation is clear, orderly and intelligent.' --"Modern Languages Journal
