Overview

Lorca is one of the greatest modern poets. His later and most powerful works however remain elusive even to Lorca scholars. For just as Lorca cannot be understood in isolation from the cultural traditions of Spain and Andalusia, so it is also necessary to appreciate the poet's vantage point as a gay person, if his meaning is to be fully understood.
