About Federico Garcia Lorca

Spain's most celebrated modern poet, Federico Garcia Lorca was born in 1898 near Granada. Poet, dramatist, musician and artist, he was the author of 'The Gypsy Ballad Book' (1928) and 'Poet in New York' (1940). After his return from New York and Cuba to Republican Spain in 1930, he devoted himself to the theatre, writing three tragedies including 'Blood Wedding' (1933). An outspoken supporter of the Republic, he was assassinated at the height of his fame by Nationalist partisans in Granada in 1936, on the eve of the Spanish Civil War. J.L. (Joan) Gili (1907-1998) lived in England from 1934. A scholar, translator, publisher and bookseller, he ran the Dolphin Book Co. in Oxford for many years, and was well known for his work on this Lorca selection and as the translator of the Catalan poet Josep Carner's 'Nabi'.
