Notă biografică

Federico García Lorca was born into an educated family of small landowners in Fuente Vaqueros in 1898. A poet, dramatist, musician and artist, he attended the university at Granada, where he acquired a fine knowledge of literature. In 1919 he went to the Residencia de Estudiantes in Madrid and during his long stay there he met all the principal writers, critics and scholars who visited the place, which was then a flourishing centre of cultural liberalism. In 1928 hisGipsy-Ballad Book(Romancero gitano) received much public acclaim. In 1929 he went to New York with Fernando de los Ríos and his volume of poemsPoet in New York(Poeta en Nueva York) was published posthumously in 1940.
On his return to republican Spain, he devoted himself to the theatre, as co-director of La Barraca, a government-sponsored student theatrical company that toured the country. He now wrote fewer poems, but these include his masterpieceLament for Ignacio Sánchez Mejías(Llanto por la muerte de Ignacio Sánchez Mejías, 1935), a lament for a dead bullfighter. He wrote classical plays, pantomimic interludes, puppet plays,La zapatera prodigiosa(1930) and three tragedies:Blood Wedding(Bodas de sangre, 1933),Yerma(1934) andThe House of Bernarda Alba(La casa de Bernarda Alba, 1936). Just after the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War in 1936 he was murdered at Granada by Nationalist partisans, in mysterious circumstances.
