The story of Yerma focuses on the life of a Spanish woman married to an honest man. The dilemna of this powerful work is Freudian. If someone loves and does not want to, can he make someone happy and give them a meaningful life? At the same time, she can not articulate what she wants in terms of modernity. Does she want to be a mother, want to be wanted, want to be full? We will never know completely what she wants.
The talent of Federico García Lorca’s work reveals another edge of personal searches and the insatiable inability to find some form of an epiphany.
