A fundamental example of Lorca's dramatic work, in it he delves into the passions of body and soul and the roots of women and the Spanish land. Starting from a real event, a small piece of news in a newspaper, what could be a simple rural tragedy is transformed into a drama of mythical and symbolic resonances, brimming with poetry and mystery, where the passion of the lovers will end up exploding in blood. The chronicle of a woman who leads her two rivals to their deaths.
