Love, Desire and Identity in the Theatre of Federico García Lorca
Disponible en otras libreríasVer todos los ejemplares de este libro
A dialectical tension between physical desire and metaphysical love lies at the heart of the theatre works of Federico García Lorca, and the deployment of queer theory's critique of gender and identity is surprisingly effective in this discussion of love versus desire. Seldom is enough attention paid to the poet's early works, and so this book offers a timely review of the 'religious tragedy' Cristo , as well as Mariana Pineda , uncovering in these early offerings an explicit proposal of the supremacy of love over desire. A meditation on the fragmentary and challenging El público yields a vivid panorama of identity in crisis, and a paradigmatic Lorcan sacrif ice of self for love. The ostensibly more conventional tragedies of Amor de Don Perlimplín con Belisa en su jardín and Yerma are also reassessed in terms of self-sacrifice and self-love. The study concludes with an a rgument for a practical re-reading of La casa de Bernarda Alba , which emphasises how the play might be saved from po-faced realism with music, humour and drag performance.

Críticas: In this stimulating and cogently argued study, Paul McDermid makes the case for viewing Lorca's theatre within the context of Modernism, in particular the philosophies and writings of Oscar Wilde, whom he describes as 'the patron saint of contemporary queer theory'.
