MEDIA REVIEWS
"Soufas undertakes the important but difficult task of discovering a unifying aesthetic project that underlies all of Lorca's disparate theatrical production, from the puppet farces, to the unpresentable plays, to the well-known canonical works, by looking at the way the dramas address the questions of authority and audience." Reed Anderson, Miami University"
"With a thorough familiarity and grasp of previous Lorcan scholarship (a real achievement in itself!), the author goes on to challenge successfully the sometimes narrow focus of that scholarship and to search for creative authority over the course of his career until his death. The result is a worthy contribution to the understanding of a major world dramatist." Marion Peter Holt, City University of New York"
