"Intelligent book...Wright understands the material well". - "Times Higher Education Supplement". Drawing on anthropology, psychoanalysis, and literary theory, this book uses the image of the trickster to argue for a fresh and original reading of Garcia Lorca's plays, highlighting androgyny, male fantasy, masochism, masquerade and the carnivalesque. The study includes detailed textual analyses of "Amor de Don Perlimplin con Belisa en su jardin", "Asi Que Pasan Cinco Anos" and "El Publico", as well as extensive examination of "La Zapatera Prodigiosa" and "Bodas de Sangre"; in addition it makes reference to the lesser known El Sueno de la Vida", "Retablillo de Don Cristobal", "Dragon", and "El loco y la Loca", together with a relevant selection of Garcia Lorca's drawings and prose. Dr Sarah Wright is Lecturer in Hispanic Studies at the University of Hull.
