Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“As contemporary as today’s headlines: slums, racism, violence, and cries of loneliness punctuate this verse…An unrelentingly negative antihymn…[to] our culture’s materialistic corruption of love and its degradation of nature.” Publishers Weekly
“One of his greatest works.” New York Times

Author Bio: Federico García Lorca

Federico García Lorca (1898–1936)was born in Fuente Vaqueros, a few miles outside Granada in the province of Andalusia, southern Spain. From an early age he was fascinated by Spain’s mixed heritage, adapting its ancient folk songs, ballads, lullabies, and flamenco music into poems and plays. By the age of thirty, he had published five books of poems, culminating in 1928 with Gypsy Ballads, which brought him far-reaching fame. In 1929/30 he studied in New York City, where he wrote the poems―among his most socially engaging and compelling―that were to be published posthumously (and famously) as Poet in New York. Upon returning to Spain, he devoted much of his attention to theater. In 1936, at the outset of the Spanish Civil War, he was shot to death by anti-Republican rebels in Franco’s army, and his books were banned and destroyed.
