Selected Poems

with parallel Spanish text

Federico García Lorca
Translated by Martin Sorrell and Edited by D.Gareth Walters

Oxford World's Classics

  • A unique parallel-text selection from the poetry of Spain's best-known, and best, modern poet and dramatist.
  • The selection covers all periods of Lorca's life and unlike most anthologies of his poems gives equal space to the less well-known early poems, thus giving a clearer vision of Lorca's poetic development as well as drawing attention to the brilliance and originality of some of the earlier work. At the same time key poems from all Lorca's collections are given, including the recently discovered Sonnets of Dark Love.
  • Martin Sorrell's translations are thoughtful and accomplished, sharp but nuanced, and Gareth Walters's Introduction gives a clear and balanced appraisal of the poetry, steering away from the tendency to mythologize Lorca's life and death, and thus invaluable for both newcomers to Spanish literature and more experienced students and scholars.
  • The edition includes helpful notes, select bibliography, chronology, and index of titles.
