Overview


Poetry. Chosen and translated by Paul Blackburn. Drawings by Basil KingLatino/Latina Studies. "No modern Spanish Poet has so seduced the English-speaking world as Federico Garcia Lorca...At once daring and traditional, stark and explosive, his poetry seems to hold vast worlds of violence and sexuality in momentary, volatile equilibrium...Blackburn's translations catch this essential quality...full of the keen sense of words' sound and touch that characterized his own poetry. Blackburn...was one of the art's (translation) recent masters. In mingling his voice with Lorca's, he (Blackburn) has done us all a service" - David H. Rosenthal.
