FEDERICO GARCIA LORCA was born in 1898 in Fuente Vaqueros, in the Spanish province of Andalusia. By the time he was thirty, he had published five books of verse, culminating in 1928 with Gypsy Ballads, which brought him far-reaching fame. In 1929-30 he studied in New York City, where he wrote the poems that were to be published posthumously as Poet in New York. Upon returning to Spain, he devoted much of his attention to theater, but continued to write poems, among them the now famous Dark Love Sonnets, also never published in his lifetime. In 1936, at the outset of the Spanish Civil War, he was shot to death by anti-Republican rebels in Franco's army, and his books were banned and destroyed. Today, GarcYa Lorca's works are celebrated and read throughout the world. SARAH ARVIO, the author of night thoughts- 70 dream poems & notes from an analysis, Sono- cantos, and Visits from the Seventh, has won the Rome Prize and the Guggenheim and Bogliasco fellowships, among other honors. A lifelong New Yorker, she has been a translator for the United Nations in New York and Switzerland for many years; she also taught poetry at Princeton.
