Customer Review

on 17 April 2009
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.
