Review

'Best of all is Ann Mitchell's superb Bernarda Alba, who presides over her daughters like a malevolent mother superior. As polished and shiney as her own furniture, a husk of a woman who puts pride and honour before love and generosity, and who is so out of touch with her own heart that she ignores all the signs of the coming disaster, content to rule her house with her eyes wide shut.' Lyn Gardner, Gaurdian, 30 April 2009 It is a play about what happens to hearts when they are walled up and denied the opportunity to sweel with love and happiness' Lyn Gardener, Gaurdian, 30 April 2009 --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

For high school students, it is a beautiful adaptation.
I found it user-friendly, while keeping the integrity of the story intact. It also keeps the
emotional moments of the characters in place. It was easy to cut into a One-Act version as required
for competition purposes.
Good work Ms Mann!

Format: Paperback
The House of Bernarda Alba is by far Lorca's strongest play - probably the twentieth century's greatest Spanish drama and one of the ten or twenty greatest of the century overall. Lorca unfortunately did not live to complete his next play, but this is in many ways his drama's culmination, the masterwork he had been working for his whole career. He has skillfully pared back poetic imagery to the point where The House strongly resembles most modern prose drama, but it is not a step back. The occasional lyricism is so well-done and appropriate that, if anything, this is the seamless welding he had been working for from the start. He has also pared back elsewhere; the play is a masterpiece of concision in several ways. Just as Yerma followed naturally from Blood Wedding in focusing near-exhaustively on a single female character, here all characters are female. One male is very important to the plot but never appears - a decision that works better than the more obvious route could have. Many women's/feminist issues again inevitably arise, but this has far wider appeal. Issues of family, class, marriage, etc. resonate powerfully across cultures and time, raising Lorca above the "Spanish" category in which it is often so easy to put him. The plot is again nothing revolutionary, but execution is masterful. Various emotions reach almost unbearable peaks throughout, and Lorca's deft hand with timing and suspense is at full throttle. Symbolism has also been pared down, at least as essential to the plot as ever but far more subtle. It is skillfully embedded into the play's very fabric rather than being thrust forward as in Blood, making a work that, like all great works, can be appreciated on several levels.

This brings up the main unavoidable crux in reading Lorca - he is not an easy read.
