Federico García Lorca

Federico García Lorca (1898-1936), the poet and dramatist, is recognized as one of the greatest artists of modern Spain. He composed Poem of the Deep Song, his first major collection, in 1921, at the age of twenty-three, but it was not published until 1931, five years before he was murdered by the fascists at the start of the Spanish Civil War. Other major works include Gypsy Ballads and Poet in New York.
