Book Review
4 out of 5 stars to Bodas de sangre, written in 1933 by Federico García Lorca. I read this book during a Spanish literature course, as part of my English degree and minor in Spanish. I really enjoyed reading the novel in Spanish, but not being a native speaker, I lost a little bit of the story. I read an English translation and compared my notes from one to other, quickly realizing how much I did understand but also lost. I've seen two adaptions in film, but there are several. It's a fantastic story that speaks many volumes across a variety of themes: conflict between generations in a family, men versus women, being alone or separated from others and blame versus nurturing. With the beauty of the Spanish culture and history, the story lifts off the pages, but the characters have such strength and depth. There is great emotion behind his writing and it clearly shows with the massive intensity of the actions that happen throughout the story. It's worth a read if you have any familiar background with Spanish literature and the language. If not, the English translation works, but might be easier to watch a film version as the translations are usually a tad bit easier to understand.

Read information about the author

Ebook Lorca: Blood Wedding read Online! Born in Fuente Vaqueros, Granada, Spain, June 5,1898; died near Granada, August 19,1936, García Lorca is one of Spain's most deeply appreciated and highly revered poets and dramatists. His murder by the Nationalists at the start of the Spanish civil war brought sudden international fame, accompanied by an excess of political rhetoric which led a later generation to question his merits; after the inevitable slump, his reputation has recovered (largely with a shift in interest to the less obvious works). He must now be bracketed with Machado as one of the two greatest poets Spain has produced this century, and he is certainly Spain's greatest dramatist since the Golden Age.
