The folk tragedy Blood Wedding
is about ordinary women confronting their own passionate natures and rebelling against the constraints of Spanish society. The unnamed bride in Blood Wedding
runs away from her wedding reception with her former suitor, Leonardo, who is married. Death, in the person of a beggar, leads the frustrated bridegroom to the guilty couple. The men kill each other, leaving the bereaved women—Leonardo’s wife, the bridegroom’s mother, and the bride—to bewail their losses.
