About the Author: Federico García Lorca

Born in Fuente Vaqueros, Granada, Spain, June 5,1898; died near Granada, August 19,1936, García Lorca is one of Spain's 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 Spain's greatest dramatist since the Golden Age.

El Romancero gitano, The Gypsy Ballads is a lyric work, which Lorca began writing in 1923 and was published 1928. This Romancero is comprised of eighteen folk ballads about themes, such as night, death, blood, sky and moon. The overriding theme is the Gypsy folk world. These ballads represent a synthesis of popular or folk poetry and high lyrics, which is displayed in Andalucia and the Gypsy in a mythic and metaphoric style. This work reflects the sufferings of the Gypsy people, who are portrayed as persecuted by authorities and their struggle against this repressive governmental overreach. El Romancero gitano, The Gypsy Ballads, es una obra poetica de Federico Garcia Lorca, publicada en 1928. Este Romancero esta compuesta por dieciocho romances con temas como la noche, la muerte, la sangre, el cielo, la luna. Todos los poemas tienen algo en comun, tratan de la cultura gitana. Representa una gran sintesis entre la poesia popular y la alta, transcurre entre dos temas prmordiales, Andalucia y los gitanos, tratados en forma metaforica y mitica. La obra refleja las penas de un pueblo que vive al margen de la sociedad y que se ve perseguido por los representantes de la autoridad, y por su lucha contra esa autoridad represiva. El poeta habla: ...pienso construir varios romances con lagunas, romances con montanas, romances con estrellas; una obra misteriosa y clara, que sea como una flor (arbitraria y perfecta como una flor): toda perfume! Quiero sacar de la sombra algunas ninas arabes que jugaran por estos pueblos y perder en mis bosquecillos liricos a las figuras ideales de los romancillos anonimos. Figurate un romance que en vez de lagunas tenga cielos. Hay nada mas emocionante! Este verano, si Dios me ayuda con sus palomitas, hare una obra popular y andalucisima. Voy a viajar un poco por estos pueblos maravillosos, cuyos castillos, cuyas personas parece que nunca han existido para los poetas y... Basta ya de Castilla!!."
