GWYNNE EDWARDS - Lorca Living in the Theatre

Title: Lorca Living in the Theatre
Description: Peter Owen, 2003, (first edition), 240 blz., Porto 4,50 euro NL, ISBN 0720611482, Hardback met stofomslag, hoekje van binnenkant omslag geknipt, verder in zeer goede staat. Mooi ex. Engelstalig. In very good condition. Text in English., Lorca's theatre, like that of Strindberg and Tennessee Williams, voices his personal dilemmas, not least his homosexuality. This study of all his plays examines the way in which the dramatist's life was transformed into high art through influences as varied as Surrealism and Greek tragedy. In an attempt to cover as many aspects of Lorca's theatre and the time in which he lived as possible, Gwynne Edwards deals not only with the plays themselves but includes material on the social and political character of the 1920s and 1930s, on the cultural background, on Lorca's friendships with Dalss­ and Bussħuel and on the performances of the plays in his lifetime and afterwards. Lorca is by far the best-known and most popular Spanish dramatist in the English-speaking world, not to mention Continental Europe. Anyone who wishes to know more about him will find it in this volume." -- Publisher description..
