As its dramatic title suggests, this play, first performed in 1932, is a tragedy which ends in a blood bath.  The wedding setting allows Lorca to crystallize the passions two people feel for each other, as the bride marries a man she doesn't really love.  

In the style of a Greek tragedy, the situation is resolved before the day is out, with an increasingly symbolic style of presentation where death is represented by an old beggar woman.

An accessible play to study, there is plenty to discuss about the themes of choice, fate, and deception.

Never a dull moment in Esquivel's passionate, very atmospheric novel. The story traces the life of Tita de la Garza from the age of fifteen - born on the kitchen table, Tita's life is centred around cooking.  It is presented in twelve chapters, each allocated a month and each preceded by a Mexican recipe, which will play a central role in the coming events.

Set on the Mexican-US border in a period of upheaval, the novel demonstrates the power of love to overcome barriers, as young Tita is forbidden from marrying the love of her life, Pedro who instead is pushed towards her sister Rosaura.  The novel employs magical realism to blend the supernatural with the ordinary - the food Tita cooks conspires to influence dramatically key events.

In brief, the novel is rich in themes (i.e. self-growth), worthy of study, and very accessible to students, despite its length.

Santiago Nasar's murder is foretold in the first line of this novel. The story concerns regaining family honour, after a wedding is called off when the groom finds out that his wife is not a virgin.

Márquez based this story on a tragic incident, which happened in his own locality. He structured the narrative around the statements, provided by members of the community, who knew that the slighted bride's twin brothers were going after Nasar to kill him.

A short, linguistically very accessible novella which will appeal to sixth formers.

Although short, this novella manages to incorporate much of the malaise which affects South America, and particularly, Columbia.  The unnamed colonel, who lives in poverty with his asthmatic wife, has been waiting for years for his military pension; the letter he goes to fetch each time the postal boat comes in never appears.

Political and religious repression hang over the small town and we learn that the colonel's son lost his life as a result of this.  The only hope of redemption for the couple is to sell the champion fighting cock left to them by the son. In fact, the main thrust of the novella revolves around the colonel's attempt to get a good price for it.

Written outside the tradition of magical realism for which he is known, Márquez presents us with an engaging story, brimming with humanity and atmosphere; we can almost feel the stress of the population, as the heat builds.

In short, it is a rather accessible novella, which will serve to introduce students to a Nobel prize-winning author.

A love story, written in the context of the Spanish civil war, where republican prisoners are gathered in prison. The narrative is pieced together in post-Franco Spain, when a refugee returns to his native Galicia.

Poetic and moving, the novel convincingly demonstrates the true horrors of the Spanish civil war and Francoism.

Written in 1967, this entrancing, autobiographical novel is based on the lives of children, who were evacuated from the Basque country to France and Belgium during the Spanish civil war.  The author evokes the hardships which the children suffered, as well as the emergence of a range of archetypal characters.

The eponymous tree of the title refers to the Guernica oak, around which leaders gathered together to pledge respect for the rights and privileges of the area's citizens.

Finished in 1936 only a few months before his death, this play has a cast of only women:  Bernarda Alba and her seven daughters.  On the death of her husband, the mother declares a period of mourning of seven years. This, added to the fact that she considers none in the village good enough for her daughters, builds up latent tension in the play.

Only Angustias, who has inherited money from her father, Bernarda's first husband, is elegible to court a man - although she doesn't know that her younger, prettier sister Adela is already secretly courting her intended, Pepe.  So all the makings of a tragedy here in this encapsulation of the hypocrisies and constraints which beset a Spain that could make life so claustrophobic and miserable.

In short, La casa de Bernarda Alba is a short play, presented in very accessible language, which has much to discuss and study.

Isabel Allende is one of the most prolific writers in the world, and this novel really drew the public's attention to her.  Written as her grandfather lay dying, Allende started it as a letter which was intended to keep him alive in spirit.  Gradually, it turned into a novel in which she was to attempt to exorcize the demons of the era of dictator General Pinochet.

Following a long period writing journalism and translating romantic novels such as Barbara Cartland, Allende adopted a form of magical realism, which was much used in South American literature.

Although rather long for the average A-level student, La casa de los espiritus is linguistically accessible and will reward the more ambitious.

Although perhaps too long and complex for students at A-level, this fascinating novel will reward those who put the effort in to read it in the original Spanish.  A world-wide bestseller when it came out, readers were spellbound by the multidimensional nature of the book; the father who takes his son to the secret bookstore, El Cementerio de los Libros Olvidados, from which he is allowed to take one title, the search for the author Carax.  We are never quite sure whether things are true or not.

The story is set in the context of post-civil war Barcelona. There, the constant threat of danger lends the narrative a tension which never lets up, as police officer Fumero tries to track down Daniel and his friend Fermin, a former government agent.

The theme of repression during the Franco era is well represented and would be an interesting topic for study.

Written in the 80s, well after the fall of the Franco fascist régime, this play concerns life coming up to and encompassing the Spanish civil war.  It demonstrates how the circumstances of individual members of a family are dramatically transformed as a result of the political changes which occur.   The fact that Luisito doesn't get his long dreamed of bicycle is the least of the worries of a family falling apart under fascist repression.

This fascinating book reexamines aspects of the Spanish civil war initially from the perspective of a journalist who interviews the son of renowned fascist.   He discovers that, at the end of the war when the Republicans are retreating,  Mazas' life is spared by a Republican soldier who sees him but pretends he hasn't.  

The novel, which was a best seller in Spain, takes three different perspectives in examining the search for the soldier who refrained from killing Mazas.  The level of language is accessible to the A level student and the Spanish Civil war is a topic about which there is much to say, including the reluctance of people to talk about it.

Bécquer was the son of an artist and had a considerable amount of talent himself but became increasingly keen on writing, both poetry and prose.  His writing followed on from the Romatnics and is widely seen as forming the foundation for later Spanish poetry.

Rimas y leyendas is composed of his romantic poems many of them written for the woman he loved but who spurned him and a selection of his short, romantic tales written in legendary style.
