Author Biography - Federico Garcia Lorca
Federico Garcia Lorca (1898-1936) was born near Granada. His works include 'The Gypsy Ballads' (1928), 'Poem of the Deep Song' (1931) and 'Poet in New York' (1940), and the three tragedies, 'Blood Wedding' (1933), 'Yerma' (1934) and 'The House of Bernarda Alba' (1936). An inspiring friend and occasional collaborator of some of the great artists of his time, including Manuel de Falla, Salvador Dali and Pablo Neruda, he was also a mesmerising performer of his own work, a consummate musician and a theatrical innovator of genius. He was murdered in Granada at the height of his fame by Nationalist partisans on the eve of the Spanish Civil War.Christopher Maurer is Head of the Spanish Department at the University of Illinois, Chicago. He has published many editions and translations of Lorca's works, including 'Collected Poems' (Farrar, Straus & Giroux, 1990) and 'Selected Poems' (Penguin, 1995). He is the author, with Maria E. Iglesias, of 'Shearwater: Dreaming in Clay on the Coast of Mississippi', the story of an unusual southern family of potters, painters and writers (Doubleday, 2000).
