9788423918805: Yerma (Spanish Edition)

The second of Lorca's great trilogy of rural dramas, Yerma is a concentrated blend of contrasting moods through which Lorca charts the increasingly destructive obsession of a childless young country wife, and probes the darker zones of human fears and desires. The play's rich mode of expression - a powerful combination of verbal, visual and auditory images and rhythms - is also geared to celebrating sexual attraction and fertility, creation and procreation. Through his characterization of the play's central figure, Lorca raises the question of women's social status - a controversial question both then and now, and one to which Robin Warner pays particular attention in his critical introduction to the play. He also examines the links between the dramatic structure of Yerma and the importance of cultural politics during the turbulent course of the Second Spanish Republic. The Spanish text is supported by an introduction and notes in English, as well as by an extensive vocabulary and section of discussion questions.

About the Author:

Hijo de un rico propietario y de una maestra, vivió una infancia rural a la que sumó una completa formación. Se trasladó a Madrid, donde se alojó en la Residencia de Estudiantes y conoció a sus compañeros de generación y a muchas figuras del panorama artístico. En este ambiente conoce las Vanguardias, pero su personal sensibilidad sobrepasa las modas y triunfa definitivamente con su emblemático Romancero gitano.

Tras vivir una enriquecedora temporada en Cuba y Nueva York -el impacto de esta ciudad da lugar a Poeta en Nueva York -, vuelve a España. Durante la República, dirige la compañía La Barraca, grupo teatral universitario con el que lleva el teatro clásico por todos los rincones de España. En 1933 visita Buenos Aires, donde sus dramas obtienen gran éxito. De regreso, Lorca, que es ya poeta de éxito, manifiesta públicamente sus ideas de izquierdas; este hecho lo pone en el punto de mira de los nacionales que lo asesinan nada más estallar la guerra civil, dos meses después de terminar La casa de Bernarda Alba. Otras obras destacadas del autor son Poema del cante jondo, La zapatera prodigiosa, Bodas de sangre, Yerma, Doña Rosita la solterao el lenguaje de las flores, Mariana Pineday El público, todas ellas publicadas en Austral.

The son of a wealthy landowner and a teacher, he lived a rural childhood to which he added full training. He moved to Madrid, where he stayed in the Student Residence and met his generation class mates and many figures of the artistic scene. In this environment he meets the Vanguards, but his personal sensitivity surpasses fashions and finally triumphs with his flagship, the Gypsy Ballads. After living a rewarding season in Cuba and New York -the impact of this city results in being a Poet in New York-, he returns to Spain. During the Republic, he manages a company called La Barraca, a university theater group with which he brings classical theater to every corner of Spain.

In 1933 he visits Buenos Aires, where his dramas achieve great success. On his return, Lorca, is already a successful poet. He publicly expresses his left-wing ideas; this fact puts him in the crosshairs of Nazis who kill him causing the outbreak of civil war, two months after finishing Bernarda Alba's house. Other outstanding works of the author are Cantejondo poem, The Prodigious Shoemaker, Blood Weddings, Barren, Doña Rosita the spinster, or the language of flowers, Mariana Pineday The public, all o fhtem published in Austral.
