Example text

39 See, for example, the truncated letter in Rafael Martínez Nadal, Federico García Lorca. Mi penúltimo libro sobre el hombre y el poeta (Madrid: Editorial Casariego, 1992), 298; and the fragments of a letter to Jorge Zalamea in Epistolario completo, 576–8. W. Norton, 1998], 651). On the suppression or mutilation of Lorca’s works, see Daniel Eisenberg, ‘Lorca and Censorship: The Gay Artist Made Heterosexual’, Angélica (Lucena, Spain), 2 (1991), 121–45.

Fractured by his sojourn in the New World, the subject of the poems feels pulled between the ‘crystal-seeking forms’ of (perhaps) science and technology and the ‘curves’ of poetry, nature, and the imagination (‘Vuelta de paseo’ [Back from a Walk]). Many readers – most recently and lucidly, Nandorfy – have detected in Poeta en Nueva York the influence of the biblical book of Revelation, and some of the poems (‘Oda al rey de Harlem’ [Ode to the King of Harlem]) sound an apocalyptic note, predicting a vague, vengeful rebellion by blacks against the white power structure.

How one notices, in their poems, the confident ugly rhythm of the man who knows grammar. Nothing but the quintessence and this or that trill for its coloristic effect ought to be drawn straight from the people. We should never want to copy their ineffable modulations: we can do nothing but blur them. Simply because of education. (Deep Song, p. 33) Those words are in consonance with Falla’s treatment of traditional song in his own works. The following words, written by Falla’s disciple and Lorca’s close friend Adolfo Salazar, who was then writing for the Madrid daily El Sol, apply not only to works like Falla’s Retablo de Maese Pedro [Master Peter’s Puppet Show], which Falla was working on around the time of the Festival, but also to Lorca’s poetry: Evocation is, today, an element of beauty, a source of emotion; it doesn’t try to reconstruct or bring anything back to life.
