Assassinated at the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War,
Federico García Lorca (1898-1936) is today recognised as one of modern literature’s great creative spirits.

This seminar explores Lorca’s life, examines his poetry (not the plays), looks at the challenge of translation, and ends with a close-reading of Romance sonámbulo/ Sleepwalking ballad – Memorable for its enigmatic refrain ‘Verde que te quiero verde/Green I love you green’.
Bi-lingual texts of all the poems studied will be available.
