'Professsor Ramsden gives very good value on the areas discussed. His analysis is exhaustive, scrupulously balanced and illuminating.' --''Bulletin of Hispanic Studies''

'This edition's major contribution is the well-conceived and executed introduction. The reader is led on a step-by-step journey through the Lorca text as well as through the particular biographical circumstances that had an impact on the play. The presentation is clear, orderly and intelligent.' --''Modern Languages Journal''
