Once Five Years Pass
This is the first English Language edition of the late plays of Lorca, bilingual with celebrated translations, here in paperback for the first time. This is the definitive Spanish (as well as English) text of plays which the great Spanish playwright and poet regarded as his most important contribution to the theater. Once Five Years Pass, weaving the influences of modernist theater, the silent film, and commedia dell’arte, has been praised for its power and vitality, and for creating a new species of dream play. Also included are four newly translated, dramatic works from the same period: Buster Keaton’s Rise, The Maiden, The Sailor and the Student, Chimera, and For This Trip to the Moon (a film script). This edition also includes fifteen original drawings by Lorca.
