Blood Wedding & Yerma

By Federico García Lorca Translated by Langston Hughes and W.S. Merwin

Paperback £14.99

García Lorca's two most famous plays translated by two of America's most gifted poets.

The epigrammatic style and unsentimental lyricism of W.S. Merwin heighten the urgency and fervor of Yerma, the story of a woman whose thwarted yearning for a child makes her murder her indifferent husband.

Pre-eminent African-American poet Langston Hughes infused his version of Blood Wedding – the story of an unwilling bride who elopes with her lover on her wedding night – with the rhythmic intensity and linguistic beauty only a fellow poet could achieve.
