A poet in New York.

Federico García Lorca arrived in New York on the 24th of June 1929 and stayed there until the 4th of March 1930. He wanted to leave behind him a suffocating life and found the oppression of mechanization, the metallic barbarity of the crowd's unawareness. Thus, he let his subconscious get into Pandora's Box and wrote a surrealistic book on a world turning mad. His personal fight to reach humanity mirrored the death drives of a multitude heading towards the apocalypse of World War II.
The readers may be disconcerted by the strange images created by Lorca in this book, but behind the adamant oddity, there is always the stubborn lucidity of a conscious mind that wants to survive in spite of the vertiginous fall of what we cannot call civiliZation.

Federico García Lorca.

Federico García Lorca was born on the 5th of June 1898 in Fuente Vaqueros (province of Granada). After his studies, he published poems, plays and became the director of a university student theatre company. He lived a complicated life in a complicated country but always tried to depict "the human heart". Killed on the 19th of August 1936, his work did not disappear with him. What he wrote is so humanly vivid that we still read it. Are we attracted by the sorrows of his tormented characters? No, we are just mesmerized by the incandescent truth of their human nature!
