Lorca: Three Plays

Drama Classic Collections

Federico García Lorca; Translated by Jo Clifford

Nick Hern Books

Three of Federico García Lorca's most famous plays in a single volume, translated from the Spanish and introduced by one of Scotland's finest playwrights, Jo Clifford.

'There's fire burning in my head.
There's an ocean drowning my heart.'

Lorca's passionate, lyrical tales of longing and revenge put the spotlight on the rural poor of 1930s Spain and are considered masterpieces of twentieth-century theatre. These plays exhibit Lorca's intense anger at the injustices of society, and his determination to create art that might remedy it.

The collection contains Blood WeddingYerma and The House of Bernarda Alba, in sensitive and playable translations, and a full introduction to Lorca, his times and his work.

The Drama Classic Collections bring together the most popular plays from a single author or a particular period. They offer students, actors and theatregoers a series of uncluttered, accessible editions, accompanied by comprehensive introductions. Where the originals are in English, there is a glossary of unfamiliar words and phrases. Where the originals are in a foreign language, the translations aim to be both actable and accurate – and are made by translators whose work is regularly staged in the professional theatre.
