too much politics ever for so great writer,
This review is from: Selected Poems of Federico Garcia Lorca (Paperback)
Garcia Lorca it's said frequently to be the best poet in the last 150 years in Spain, but the truth for impartial not professionals of literature is his name is subjected to too much controversy owing two facts: his homosexuality, that coincided with Spanish Civil war and his subsequent stupid murder, possibly owing paradoxically to his fame.
So, still today, at less in Spain it's impossible to elucidate if Lorca was as good are it's usually considered, as he was contemporaneous of many writers of great genius, some clearly inferior, but not all. I'm afraid the Lorca's case still will need another 100 years to dissipate the passions than surrounds his work and then judge freely. Themes of Lorca were very own of South Spain, polarised in two extremes, light poems, and tragical plays dealing mostly with women's problems in 1930 but he had talent enough to see and judge life of the USA and New York.
People at favor or counter Lorca both have the same problem in Spain: both judge, but no one has read him.

What a useless 'review'. But I'm sure you love the sound of your own words, even if they do not lead anywhere or make sense. Thanks for sharing your ego with us. Perhaps you'd like to read the book and post a review?
In fact, after looking at your other reviews it seems your comments are deemed unhelpful by just about everyone who reads them, so perhaps it would be best to find another hobby altogether and stop wasting everyone's time.

Amazon reviews are valuable, many people make a real contribution but this clown is an utter embarrassment not least to himself
