Ina Spanish judge opened an investigation into Lorca’s death. After Fuente Vaqueros, the family moved in to the nearby town of Valderrubio at the time named Asquerosa. Inwhen the boy was 11, his family moved to the regional capital of Granada; their best known residence there is the summer home known as the Huerta de San Vicente, on what was then the outskirts of the city of Granada. For the rest of his life, he maintained the importance of living close to the natural world, praising his upbringing in the country.

During this time his studies included law, literature and composition. Throughout his adolescence he felt a deeper affinity for music than for literature. When he was 11 years old, he began six years of piano lessons with Antonio Segura Mesa, a harmony teacher in the local conservatory and a composer. It was Mesa who inspired Federico’s dream of developing a career in music. He would later claim that Mariana Pinedawritten inwas, in fact, his first play.

During the time at the Residencia de Estudiantes, he pursued degrees in law and philosophy, though he had more interest in writing than study.

They concern the themes of religious faith, isolation and nature that had filled his prose reflections. The year before Lorca had begun to write his Poema del cante jondo “Poem of the Deep Song”, not published untilso he naturally composed an essay on the art of flamenco[18] and began to speak publicly in support of the Concurso.

Wl the music festival in June he met the celebrated Manuel Torrea flamenco cantador.

The next year in Granada he also collaborated with Falla and others on the musical production of a play for children, adapted by Lorca from an Andalucian story. He published a poetry collection including Cancion Song.

Shortly after, Lorca was invited to exhibit a series of drawings at the Galeries Dalmau in Barcelona, from 25 June — 2 July Both his poetry and drawings reflected the influence of traditional Andalusian motifs, Cubist syntax, and a preoccupation with sexual identity.

Several drawings consisted of superimposed dreamlike faces or shadows. He later gafcia the double faces as self-portraits, showing “man’s capacity for crying as well as winning”, inline with his conviction that sorrow and joy were inseparable, just as life and death. Romancero Gitano Gypsy Ballads, part of his Cancion series, became his best known book of poetry.

A book that gqrcia expresses visible Andalusia at all, but where the hidden Andalusia trembles”. For the rest of his life, the writer would search for the elements of Andaluce culture, trying to find its essence without resorting to the “picturesque” or the cliched use of “local colour”.

It was a farce about fantasy, based on the relationship between a flirtatious, petulant wife and a hen-pecked shoemaker. These brought on an increasing depression, a situation exacerbated by his anguish over his homosexuality. He felt he was trapped between the persona of the successful author, which he was forced to maintain in public, and the tortured, authentic self, which he could acknowledge only in private.


He also had the sense that he was being pigeon-holed as a “gypsy poet”. I could just as well be a poet of sewing needles or hydraulic landscapes. Besides, this gypsyism gives me the appearance of an uncultured, ignorant and primitive poet that you know very well I’m not. I don’t want to be typecast”. The ship out on the sea and the horse on the mountain. With the shadow at the waist she dreams on her balcony, green flesh, green hair, with eyes of cold silver.

He studied English but, as before, was more absorbed by writing than study. He also spent time in Vermont and later in HavanaCuba. His collection Poeta en Nueva York A Poet in New Yorkpublished posthumously in explores alienation and isolation through some graphically experimental poetic techniques and was influenced by the Wall Street crash which he personally witnessed.

This condemnation of urban capitalist society and materialistic modernity was garcai sharp departure from his earlier work and label as a folklorist. It was funded by the Second Republic’s Ministry of Education, and it was charged with touring Spain’s rural areas in order to introduce audiences to radically modern interpretations of classic Spanish theatre free of charge. We [La Barraca] are going to give it back to them”.

His work challenged the accepted role of women in society and explored taboo issues of homoeroticism and class.

This attempted to define a schema of artistic inspiration, arguing that great art depends upon a vivid awareness of death, connection with a nation’s soil, and an acknowledgment of the limitations of reason.

Lorca spent summers at the Huerta de San Vicente from to The poet lived in the Huerta de San Vicente in the days just before his arrest and assassination in August On the same day he was paweo, 18 August, Lorca was arrested.
