Yerma by Federico García Lorca

Book cover for Yerma
Book cover for Yerma
Yerma is a concentrated blend of contrasting moods through which Lorca charts the increasingly destructive obsession of a childless young country wife, and probes the darker zones of human fears and desires. The play's rich mode of expression- a powerful combination of verbal, visual and auditory images and rhythms- is also geared to celebrating sexual attraction and fertility, creation and procreation.
