Federico García Lorca

Federico García Lorca (1898 - 1936) is widely considered to be Spain's most important playwright and poet. He and his close friend Salvador Dalí took the literary and artistic worlds by storm in the 1920's, introducing daring explorations of desire, sexuality and surrealism. Mr. Lorca's two poetry collections, Canciones (Songs), and Romancero gitano (the Gypsy Ballads), earned him international fame. In the 1930s, Mr. Lorca dedicated himself to writing the renowned folk drama trilogy Bodas de Sangre (Blood Wedding), Yerma, and La Casa de Bernarda Alba (The House of Bernarda Alba). In 1936, Mr. Lorca was executed without a trial, becoming an early martyr of The Spanish Civil War.
