By

Rating
Selected verse from the poet who "expanded the scope of lyric poetry" (Rafael Campo, The Washington Post).The work of Federico Garcia Lorca, Spain's greatest modernist poet, has long been admired for its emotional intensity and metaphorical brilliance. The revised Selected Verse, which incorporates changes made to Garcia Lorca's Collected Poems, is an essential addition to any poetry lover's bookshelf. In this bilingual edition, Garcia Lorca's poetic range comes clearly into view, from the playful Suites and stylized evocations of Andalusia to the utter gravity and mystery of the final elegies, confirming his stature as one of the twentieth century's finest poets."

About the Author

Federico Garcia Lorca was born in 1898 in southern Spain. From an early age he was fascinated by Spain's mixed heritage, adapting its 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 that were published posthumously as Poet in New York. 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. Christopher Maurer is the head of the Department of Spanish, French, Italian, and Portuguese at the University of Illinois in Chicago.
