      Gypsy Ballads
El Romancero Gitano es una de las creaciones l ricas m s significativas del siglo XX Punto culminante de la primera etapa est tica de Lorca, el propio poeta lo define como el poema de Andaluc a, y lo llamo gitano porque el gitano es lo m s elevado, lo m s profundo, m s aristocr tico de mi pa s, lo m s representativo de su modo y el que guarda la sangre y el alfabeto de la verdad andaluza y universal Es, sin embargo, un libro donde apenas s est expresada la Andaluc a que se ve, pero donde est temblando la que no se ve un libro antipintoresco, antifolcl rico, antiflamenco, donde las figuras sirven a fondos milenarios y donde no hay m s que un personaje grande y oscuro como un cielo de est o la pena.

Born in Fuente Vaqueros, Granada, Spain, June 5 1898 died near Granada, August 19 1936, Garc a 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.

    Sex, violence, rape and death This is stuff poems are made of It is supposed to be deeply routed in Spanish culture Lorca used to sing them when he was still in process of writing them in front of audience, and they left such a deep impact on people that they were quoted by other writers and inspired other works even before they were published I guess they wells on the habbit people had world over bef...

    Romancero gitano is Federico Garc a Lorca s most popular poetry collection It is a slim book, consisting of 18 poems, most of them no longer than three pages The poems treat of Lorca s native Andalusia with religious processions, saint days, gypsy singers, civil guards patrolling at night The collection is perhaps most famous for its iconicRomance son mbulo,which contains Lorca s most famous lines, ones which every Spaniard knows instinctivelyVerde que te quiero verdemade into a well Romancero gitano is Federico Garc a Lorca s most popular po...

    Not being satisfied with the sparseness of my initial review, I went out and bought the book I have to return the library book soon and plan to revisit the poems sooner rather than later I wish my Spanish were better, because the lyricism of Federico Garc a Lorca s poetry is evident even in a mediocre English translation This is one of those collections of poetry to which I plan to return and spend a littletime There is a real beauty to Romancero Gitano that calls out for a r Not being satisfied with the sparseness of my initial review, I went o...

    This is the first complete book of Lorca s poetry that I have read, and I am certainly going to continue into his other collections The edition is good as well very portable, but the print isn t too small The introduction and final critical portion are very focused on the chronology in which these poems were written, which isn t of great interest to me but I can certainly understand the desire to trace out the poet s trajectory Since he is one of the exemplary Spanish poets, who was very muc This is the first complete book of Lorca s poetry that I have read, and I am certainly going to continue into his other collections The edition...

    La gran ciudad lejanaesta ardiendoy un hombre va llorandotierras adentro.Al Norte hay una estrella.Al Sur un marinero.How can you not adore this poet He has been a part of my life for such a long time but everytime I go back to his works I always get stunned by the beauty of his images...

    Excellent little book put together by the University of Indiana Press as part of a poetry collection premiering in the early 1950 s The topics of life, death, love, sex and violence are as relevant today as they were when written over 85 years ago.
