Lorca's essential poems, in an attractive bilingual edition
This new edition of Selected Verse incorporates changes made to Federico García Lorca's Collected Poems, and will be an essential addition to any poetry lover's bookshelf. In this bilingual edition, Lorca's poetic range comes clearly into view, from the playful Suites and stylized evocations of Andalusia to the utter gravity and mystery of the final elegies, confirming his stature as one of our century's finest poets.
Praise for Selected Verse (FSG, 1996):
""García Lorca's poems remain influential, mysterious, and some of the most emotional we have."" --The Bloomsbury Review
""The entire poetic spectrum of Spain's greatest modern poet and dramatist is showcased . . . Lorca scholar Maurer has chosen well from all 10 of Lorca's published poetry collections as well as from a selection of previously uncollected works, and the translations are superb.""
--Donna Seaman, Booklist
