Description

Federico Garcia Lorca regarded his poems, essentially, as verbal music and, in fact, performed each poem many times before he committed it to the pages of a book. "Performance poems," they were all intended to be spoken, sung, chanted, and not merely read. It is this aspect of Lorca's poetry which Robin Skelton has emphasized in his translations of some of the most delicate lyrics and dramatic narrative poems that Lorca published.

Author Biography

Federico del Sagrado Corazon de Jesus Garcia Lorca (5 June 1898 19 August 1936) was a Spanish poet, dramatist and theatre director. Garcia Lorca achieved international recognition as an emblematic member of the Generation of '27. He was executed by Nationalist forces during the Spanish Civil War. Garcia Lorca's first book of poems was published in 1921. In 1928, he published Romancero Gitano (Gypsy Ballads), which became his best known book of poetry. Poet, anthologist, editor, teacher, biographer, art and literary critic, historical writer, initiated witch and occultist, Robin Skelton came to Canada in 1963, the author of five collections of poetry and nine other books. He taught at the University of Victoria for almost thirty years, teaching in the Department of English and then in the Department of Creative Writing, of which he was the founding Chairman in 1973. In 1967, together with John Peter, he founded The Malahat Review.
