From the publisher

Federico Garcia Lorca (1898-1936), wrote The Tamarit Divan and the Sonnets of Dark Love in the last years of his life. Both books were published posthumously and explore passionate love. The setting for The Divan is the poet's Granada, while the Sonnets are a solitary, intimate voice speaking to one person. In translating these powerful poems, Jane Duran and Gloria Garcia Lorca have tried to remain as close as possible to Lorca's words and to his emotional and sensuous intensity.This bilingual edition also includes essays by two acclaimed Lorca scholars. Christopher Maurer's essay, 'Violet Shadow', explores Lorca's relationship with Arabic poetry in the Divan. Andres Soria Olmedo's essay, 'Dark St Valentine', studies the implications and resonances of 'dark love' in the Sonnets.
