Selected Poems Summary

Selected Poems by Federico Garcia Lorca

This selection has been the introduction for generations of American readers to the mesmerizing poems of Federico Garcia Lorca (1898-1937). Lorca is admired the world over for the lyricism, immediacy and clarity of his poetry, as well as for his ability to encompass techniques of the symbolist movement with deeper psychological shadings. Most of all, Lorca's poems are admired for their beauty. Undercurrents of his major influences - Spanish folk traditions of his native Andalusia and Granada, gypsy ballads, and surrealists Salvador Dali and Luis Bunuel - stream throughout Lorca's work.

Selected Poems Reviews

What a poet! I have never seen grace and genius, a winged heart and a crystalline waterfall, come together in anyone else as they did in him. Federico Garcia Lorca was the extravagant 'duende,' his was a magnetic joyfulness that generated a test for life in his heart and radiated it like a planet. -- Pablo Neruda
