Abstract

 

It is almost impossible to discuss any aspect of The House of Bernarda Alba1 by Federico García Lorca without mentioning the special status of the work in the playwright’s oeuvre, namely that it is the last play he finished some weeks before right-wing military officers murdered him in his native Andalusia at the age of thirty-eight. At the time of writing (August 2016), Spain is commemorating the eightieth anniversary of Lorca’s death so this background is vividly present, but independently of the publication date, most editions of the play tend to highlight that the work is the tragic farewell of one of theatre history’s most seductive icons.
