I do believe Lorca wrote these gorgeous poems in the final years of his life, before he was murdered by fascists in Spain. Both are terribly dark and yet divinely e For years, I've wanted to read Lorca.
Both are terribly dark and yet divinely erotic, but not in the expected sense of the word. Sadness pervades each and every poem, even those intended to be filled with love and joy. The first collection is by far the darkest.
Divan del Tamarit
Understanding where Lorca wrote The Tamarit Divan and its political history is a help. The reader can't help but feel that Lorca's emotional strain is something akin to battling death itself. But they are beautiful and haunting poems. Garcia Lorca is perhaps the best known of modern Spanish writers, partly because of his brutal execution outside Granada by Franco's army at the beginning of the civil war, but primarily because of his genius for poetry and drama.
In Lorca published Gypsy Ballads, which won him immediate success and is considered one of the most important volumes of poetry of the century. Attracted to the gypsies for their exotic folklore, sexual vitality, and their status as a group on the fringe of Spanish society, Lorca enlarged the gypsy people and their traditions to mythical proportions. Nature takes on human form while reality acquires a dreamlike quality in this powerful transformation of the world into a myth. This condemnation of urban capitalist society and materialistic modernity was a 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 classical Spanish theatre free of charge. He commented: "Outside of Madrid, the theatre, which is in its very essence a part of the life of the people, is almost dead, and the people suffer accordingly, as they would if they had lost their two eyes, or ears, or a sense of taste.

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 shot, 18 August, Lorca was arrested. The Franco-era report, dated 9 July , describes the writer as a "socialist" and "freemason belonging to the Alhambra lodge", who engaged in "homosexual and abnormal practices".
Significant controversy exists about the motives and details of Lorca's murder. Personal, non-political motives have been suggested. Then I realized I had been murdered. They looked for me in cafes, cemeteries and churches They never found me? They never found me. Gibson disputes this in his book about the poet's death. Many anti-communists were sympathetic to Lorca or assisted him. In the days before his arrest he found shelter in the house of the artist and leading Falange member Luis Rosales.
The first published account of an attempt to locate Lorca's grave can be found in British traveller and Hispanist Gerald Brenan 's book The Face of Spain. In , a Spanish judge opened an investigation into Lorca's death. A further investigation was begun in , with no result. In late October , a team of archaeologists and historians from the University of Granada began excavations outside Alfacar. The excavations began at the request of another victim's family. In late November , after two weeks of excavating the site, organic material believed to be human bones was recovered.
The remains were taken to the University of Granada for examination. She added, "the soil was only 40cm 16in deep, making it too shallow for a grave". Claims in , by Stephen Roberts, an associate professor in Spanish literature at Nottingham University, and others that the poet's body was buried in a well in Alfacar have not been substantiated.
That year, a censored Obras completas Complete Works was released. Obras completas did not include his late heavily homoerotic Sonnets of Dark Love , written in November and shared only with close friends. No final manuscripts have ever been found. South African Roman Catholic poet Roy Campbell , who enthusiastically supported the Nationalists both during and after the Civil War, later produced acclaimed translations of Lorca's work.
In his poem, The Martyrdom of F. Garcia Lorca , Campbell wrote,. Not only did he lose his life By shots assassinated: But with a hammer and a knife Was after that — translated.

The grounds, including nearly two hectares of land, the two adjoining houses, works of art, and the original furnishings have been preserved. Flowers are laid at the memorial every year on the anniversary of his death, and a commemorative event including music and readings of the poet's works is held every year in the park to mark the anniversary.
On 17 August , to remember the 75th anniversary of Lorca's assassination and to celebrate his life and legacy, this event included dance, song, poetry and dramatic readings and attracted hundreds of spectators. At the Barranco de Viznar, between Viznar and Alfacar, there is a memorial stone bearing the words "Lorca eran todos, " "All were Lorca". The Barranco de Viznar is the site of mass graves and has been proposed as another possible location of the poet's remains. Political philosopher David Crocker reports that "the statue, at least, is still an emblem of the contested past: each day, the Left puts a red kerchief on the neck of the statue, and someone from the Right comes later to take it off.
The Lorca family deposited all Federico documents with the foundation, which holds them on their behalf. In the Hotel Castelar in Buenos Aires, Argentina, where Lorca lived for six months in , the room where he lived has been kept as a shrine and contains original writings and drawings of his.
