Yerma

Sarma, U and Garcia Lorca, F (2011) Yerma. Oberon modern plays . Oberon Books, London. ISBN 9781849430432

Abstract

Lorca's beautiful and savage play is transplanted from the suffocating heat of Spain to a barren landscape much closer to home, bringing Yerma's anguish at her childlessness into heart-breaking focus. Suffocating in a life void of passion, Yerma turns to unconventional sources for answers. Her innocent yet controversial actions send shockwaves through a tiny and stagnant community. Desperate and unbearably lonely, Yerma commits the ultimate act of rebellion, setting her free yet sealing her unhappy fate forever.
