The authoress presents Federico Garcia Lorca's 'Bloody Wedding' in the context of the multicultural and telluric land of Andalusia. This land possesses all the attributes of the numinosum: it attracts and repels, and is full of contrasts. It is also characterized by an intrinsic secret: the spirit of the earth. The inexplicable and equivocal Duende is this spirit. It is the land of Andalusia that is able - in Lorca's opinion - to renew the spirit of tragedy. Bloody Wedding is an example of this - an allusion to Greek tragedy. Here, Fate and its representative -the death-bearing Luna - discover the extent of their power. The land of Andalusia, the cradle of tauromachy, shocks and fascinates to this day, because it is here that the Spanish phenomenon of 'blood culture' is fully expressed.
