Four major plays by Federico García Lorca( Book )

10 editions published between 1996 and 2008 in English and held by 431 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'I have made a terrible discovery ... I have not yet been born ... I live off borrowed substance; what I have within me is not mine.' In his four last plays Federico Garcia Lorca offered his disturbed and disturbing personal vision to Spanish audiences of the 1930s - unready, as he thought them, for the sexual frankness and surreal expression of his more experimental work. The ill-fated lovers of Blood Wedding, the desolate Yerma, the fading spinster Rosita, and Bernarda Alba's abused household of women all inhabit a familiar Andalusia. Their predicaments are starkly plotted, with a stagecraft rooted in classical theatrical tradition. In such figures Lorca addresses the cultural and political ferment of his time with a fiercely libertarian assault on 'old and wrong moralities', fusing the personal and the political through his virtuoso mastery of images. Yet all that mastery can barely keep at bay the anguished contradictions of these doomed human lives

Four French plays : Cinna, the Misanthrope, Andromache, Phaedra( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Here are four plays that continue to define French theater over three centuries after they were written. Corneille’s Cinna (1641) explores absolute power in ancient Rome. Molière’s comedy The Misanthrope (1666) sees its antihero reject society for its hypocrisy. Racine’s Andromache (1667) recounts the tragedy of Hector’s widow after the Trojan War, and his Phaedra (1677) shows a mother crossing the boundaries of love with her stepson. This edition features new verse translations undertaken with performance in mind, and a wealth of supplementary materials for students and actors."--Publisher description
