Descripción de editorial
It is often said that the play "Blood Wedding" is inspired by a real life incident. The author, Lorca, is said to have read about a sensational crime in the Madrid daily ABC in 1928.
Almost similar incident is presented in the play, with the help of several fictionalized other events.
The incident was described as follows: Nijar was a farming village. A young man was trying to run away with a bride on the eve of her wedding.
Unfortunately, they were caught and the young man was murdered. It was later revealed that the groom’s cousin had murdered the young man.
It is said that Lorca followed the murder investigation very closely. He also followed the people who were involved in it. They helped him develop the characters in his play.
The woman involved in the crime was said to be of independent character and from a very rich family. The groom who was murdered was kind but he was over protected by his mother.
Most of the details of the wedding in the play are almost parallel to those of the real life wedding party.
