Book of Poems (Selection)/Libro de poemas (Selección): A Dual-Language Book

by Federico García Lorca Stanley Appelbaum

The passionate life and violent death of Federico Garcia Lorca (1898-1936) retain an enduring fascination for readers around the world. Murdered by Nationalists at the outset of the Spanish Civil War, Lorca died at the peak of his creative powers. He remains his country's most widely translated writer, surpassed only by Cervantes in terms of critical commentary.This selection includes 55 of the 68 poems that comprised Lorca's 1921 Libro de poemas, all of them in their entirety and in their original sequence. Imbued with the spirit and folklore of the poet's native Andalusia, these verses feature the most complex spiritual content of any of Lorca's works. Editor Stanley Appelbaum provides sensitive, accurate English translations on the pages facing the original Spanish, as well as an informative introduction to the author's life and oeuvre, plus notes on the individual poems. An outstanding resource for students and teachers of Spanish language and literature, this compilation will enchant any lover of poetry.

Sonetos del amor oscuro

by Federico García Lorca

Cuando Lorca fue asesinado en 1936, estaba en el apogeo de su madurez literaria, como demuestran las dos últimas obras que escribió: Diván del Tamarit y Sonetos del amor oscuro. Una y otra se complementan para dar lo mejor de Lorca: su dimensión popular y la valiente indagación en los claroscuros del deseo, con una claridad y crudeza que nunca antes se había permitido. Tras estar muchos años fuera de circulación, recuperamos en un solo volumen dos obras fundamentales de la poesía española del siglo XX.

La zapatera prodigiosa

by Federico García Lorca

Una pareja despareja cobra vida en esta farsa plena de simbolismos y matices. Un pasaje creativo cita una historia recurrente en la literatura universal, aunque abordada con la particular óptica del teatro español. Las obras de Federico García Lorca alcanzan cada día mayor difusión y prestigio. Ello evidencia los valores sustantivos y perdurables de las mismas, independientemente de la atención multitudinaria que se vertió sobre la gloriosa figura de su autor a raíz de su muerte trágica. De esta suerte, y no obstante hallarse en constante reimpresión los tomos de sus Obras completas, sus títulos más significativos están accesibles en ediciones sueltas. La zapatera prodigiosa, contrariamente a Yerma, viene a ser un intermedio, un ""divertimento"", pero de la más fina calidad. Corresponde a la modalidad de lo que pudiéramos llamar ""teatro de cámara"", y en efecto, su origen fue éste, ya que se estrenó en el club ""Anfistora"" de Madrid, en 1930.
