 About the Book 

Born in Fuente Vaqueros, Granada, Spain, June 5,1898- died near Granada, August 19,1936, García Lorca is one of Spains most deeply appreciated and highly revered poets and dramatists. His murder by the Nationalists at the start of the Spanish civil war brought sudden international fame, accompanied by an excess of political rhetoric which led a later generation to question his merits- after the inevitable slump, his reputation has recovered (largely with a shift in interest to the less obvious works). He must now be bracketed with Machado as one of the two greatest poets Spain has produced this century, and he is certainly Spains greatest dramatist since the Golden Age.
