    Penguin Modern Classics: Five Plays: Comedies & Tragic-Comedies - Playscripts

    By: Federico Garcia Lorca

    Date Released

    Out of Print

    From his puppet play The Billy-Club Puppets, which shows Garcia Lorca at his most lyrical and mocking, to his powerful drama Dona Rosita and The Butterfly's Evil Spell, a bizarre and experimental comedy of insects, Garcia Lorca's writing is full of bold imagery and the popular folk culture of Spain. His plays explore repression, usually of love, and the obligation to conform. Tragedy combines with farce; fantasy interplays with reality. Garcia Lorca combined the lyrical and dramatic, creating a new poetic vision that established him as the greatest Spanish playwright of the twentieth century.

    "The essence of Spain, its vitality and its profundity - existed in this man"
    Pablo Neruda
