Spain's most celebrated dramatist Federico García Lorca (1898-1936) was murdered by Nationalist sympathizers shortly after the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War. This volume shows the playwright at his provocative and poetic best and includes two of his most notorious works: The Public, his only openly homosexual drama; and Play Without a Title, a Pirandellian piece in which the blurring of stage and auditorium is combined with strong political overtones. Also included is Lorca's only historical play, the hauntingly lyrical Mariana Pineda. The Public is translated by Henry Livings; the other two plays by Gwynne Edwards.
