Immortalized in death by The Clash, Pablo Neruda, Salvador Dalí, Dmitri Shostakovich and Lindsay Kemp, Federico García Lorca's spectre haunts both contemporary Spain and the cultural landscape beyond. This study offers a fresh examination of one of the Spanish language’s most resonant voices; exploring how the very factors which led to his emergence as a cultural icon also shaped his dramatic output. The works themselves are also awarded the space that they deserve, combining performance histories with incisive textual analysis to restate Lorca’s presence as a playwright of extraordinary vision, in works such as: Blood Wedding The Public The House of Bernarda Alba Yerma. Federico García Lorca is an invaluable new resource for those seeking to understand this complex and multifaceted figure: artist, playwright, director, poet, martyr and in the eyes of many, Spain’s ‘national dramatist’.

With a rare blend of grace, warmth, and scholarship, Leslie Stainton raises the stakes of our appreciation for the greatest of Spain's modern poets, Federico Garca Lorca. Drawing on fourteen years of research; more than a hundred letters unknown to prior biographers; exclusive interviews with Lorca's friends, family, and acquaintances; and dozens of newly discovered archival material, Stainton has brought her subject to life as few writers can. She describes his carefree childhood in rural Andalusia; his residencies in Madrid and Granada, then in New York, Havana, and Buenos Aires; his potent interaction with other Spanish artists, such as Salvador Dal, Luis Buuel, and the composer Manuel de Falla; and, finally, Stainton shows how Lorca's marginal political activity during the Spanish Civil War still cost him his life. Throughout, Stainton meticulously but unobtrusively relates the oeuvre to the life. Her biography is quickly becoming the standard one-volume work on the poet.

Yerma (meaning 'Barren') is one of three tragic plays about peasants and rural life that make up Lorca's 'rural trilogy'. It is possibly Lorca's harshest play following a woman's Herculean struggle against the curse of infertility. The woman's barrenness becomes a metaphor for her marriage in a traditional society that denies women sexual or social equality. Her desperate desire for a child drives her to commit a terrible crime at the end of the play.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2004 im Fachbereich Romanistik - Spanische Sprache, Literatur, Landeskunde, Note: 1,7, Friedrich-Schiller-Universität Jena, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Ziel dieser Hausarbeit ist es, die Protagonisten der Dramen „Don Álvaro o la fuerza del sino“ von Duque de Rivas und „La casa de Bernarda Alba“ von Federico García Lorca auf ihre Figurenkonzeption hin zu untersuchen, und im Zusammenhang hierzu eine Charakterisierung dieser zu erstellen. Nach Manfred Pfister stellt die Figurenkonzeption das Menschenbild bzw. die Grundvorstellungen der dramatischen Figuren dar, welche diesen zugrunde liegen und somit auch die vom Autor intendierten Bestimmungen mit einbeziehen. Er unterscheidet hierbei im Wesentlichen vier Dimensionen nach denen die Figuren eingeteilt werden können (Vgl. Pfister, Das Drama, S. 240-264): Eine erste Möglichkeit ist die Untersuchung der Figuren im Hinblick auf ihre Entwicklung während des Handlungsverlaufes, d.h. die Differenzierung von statischen Figuren, die sich nicht verändern und dynamischen Figuren, die sich besonders in ihrem Charakter wandeln und weiterentwickeln. Ein zweites Kriterium ist die Einteilung in ein- oder mehrdimensionalen Figuren, wobei hiermit die Charakterisierung entweder durch einen kleinen und in sich schlüssigen Satz an Merkmalen (eindimensional) oder durch eine hohe Anzahl von komplexen Merkmalen (mehrdimensional) erfolgt. Die Figurencharakterisierung betreffend, unterscheidet Pfister vier Methoden, die ein Autor zur Darstellung seiner Figuren anwenden kann: explizit und implizit figural sowie explizit und implizit auktorial. Explizit figurale Figurencharakterisierungen erfolgen durch Eigenkommentare oder Fremdkommentare anderer Figuren und implizit figurale Charakterisierungstechniken beschränken sich auf die Selbstdarstellung der dramatischen Figur durch ihre Sprechweise, ihr Verhalten, aber auch durch ihr Aussehen. Zu der explizit auktorialen Charakterisierung zählen vor allem die im Nebentext vorkommenden Schilderungen und Regieanweisungen des Autors, aber auch sprechende Namen sind in dieser Kategorie wieder zu finden. Bei der implizit auktorialen Figurendarstellung handelt es sich um Korrespondenz- und Kontrastrelationen, d.h. die Beziehungen der Figuren untereinander werden analysiert. Da die dramatischen Figuren durch die Handlungszusammenhänge geprägt sind und nur im Bezug auf diese dargestellt werden können, soll jeweils vor Beginn der eigentlichen Figurenanalyse ein kurzer Einblick in die Handlungsverläufe beider Dramen gegeben werden, um dem Leser ein zusammenhängendes und umfassendes Verständnis zu gewährleisten.

A Theory for Reading Dramatic Texts

Selected Plays by Pirandello and García Lorca

This book posits a theory for reading dramatic texts. It claims that the reading experience associated with narrative and poetry does not extend to drama; reading drama is unique. The event asks a reader to integrate two narratives, dialogue and notes, to engage in the ideation of sound, action and space in an immediate present, and to internalize a performance. Based on a phenomenological understanding of the reading process and a reception approach to literature, the book offers critical readings of Pirandello's Sei personaggi in cerca d'autore and Enrico IV and García Lorca's Yerma and La casa de Bernarda Alba.

Arguably the most significant literary figure of twentieth-century Spain, Federico Garcia Lorca was an accomplished poet, playwright, lecturer, musician, and theater director. With the exception of Cervantes, no other Spanish writer has attracted more critical attention than this versatile artist. In Understanding Federico Garcia Lorca, Candelas Newton explores Lorca's literary contributions through a critical reading of his work and an explanation of the images and symbols he relied upon to manifest his primary themes.
