The Symbolism of Blood In Lorcas Blood Wedding, blood is referred to as whether a person is good or bad. In some examples, blood is explained in different metaphors. Blood has many significant symbolisms structured throughout the play. For example, What kind of a blood do you have? A person of a good blood experiences honor and love throughout his and or her life and also gets respect from the environment and society. On the other hand, bad blood represents the behavior of a person and that usually comes from the teachings of a family. Blood is repeatedly referred to as having magic powers and as the only food for supernatural beings.
In this essay, I will examine the elements of blood, which shows ones reactions in various situations, and how blood refers to as ones feelings psychologically. Blood represents itself psychologically in the play where Leonardo says Im hot-blooded and I dont want to shout so all these hills will hear me (Lorca, 59).
This behavior shows that Leonardo gets angry easily and cannot keep his anger within himself. By shouting outloud, everybody would hear him and its to be a secret meeting. Leonardo sees bride secretly and she becomes unhappy about it and she gets afraid of being seen by the others. In addition to the last statement above, blood is associated with a variety of notions, including how it affects ones emotions as well as affecting him or her psychologically.
Leonardo da Vinci was born on April 15,1452 in the village of Anchiano, close to the town of Vinci. His illegitimately father was Ser Piero, a notary a lawyer and Leonardo's mother was Caterina, a peasant girl (Costantino 9). Born during a time when it was possible to believe that man can do all things, and Leonardo proved the Renaissance correct. Around 1466 he occupied himself to the leading ...
Once again, Leonardo describes this concept in act two, scene 1, in a dialog with the bride. He states that he is hot-blooded and he does not want to shout so all these hills will hear him. In act three, scene 1 another conversation takes place between Leonardo and the bride and Leonardo describes how his red blood turns black when he thinks of her wedding. In every conversation, blood has a different meaning. Again the blood shows Leonardos emotions toward a particular event. Although there is no rational evidence to prove that the blood directly affects emotions, Leonardo uses terms that allude to the unproven fact. Moreover, blood represents genetic and heritage information.
By saying genetic information, it appears that blood shows the persons way of behavior as if they come from the same blood. Leonardo demonstrates this by running away with the bride. In this case, the bride runs away with him intentionally. For example, in different cultures this running away represents a pressure on the bride and the family of the bride eventually accepts the marriage of whom she wants to marry. In that particular event, the father states Leonardo lacks good blood, which basically shows a wrong behavior of a person. A good blood therefore, goes away from that person and people recognize him with a bad blood.
A person with a bad blood can steal stuff, harm people and become a dangerous identity in the society once his name goes around the people. When the father thinks Leonardo lacks good blood, the mothers reaction comes out sturdy. The mother responds with, What blood would you expect him to have? His whole familys blood. It comes down from his great grandfather, who started killing, and it goes on down through the whole evil breed of knife wielding and false smiling men (Lorca, 68).
The mother, in one way explains the kind of blood he possesses. Each symbol has a particular meaning with the blood as one understands on a deeper level.
Through generations, ways of thinking have evolved into a process in which leads them to the truths of life. In many cultures, ways of thinking is different and the symbol of having a good or bad blood has a different meaning. Truth of life becomes the physiological truths of nature over the time..
