Bodas De Sangre
Bodas de sangre is arguably the best-known work by the most celebrated of all twentieth-century Spanish writers. A passionate story of family feud and tragic elopement is played out in the setting of a poor country village, building up to a dramatic ending full of the intensely poetic symbolism characteristic of Lorca.

Review: Bodas de sangreUser Review - Lindsay Wuchner - Goodreads
Another great play by Federico García Lorca. Now that I have read this play, Yerma, and La casa de Bernalda Alba, I understand a little more where he was coming from. Great read and didn't take that much time. Read full review
