A revised edition of this major writer's complete poetical work

And I who was walking
with the earth at my waist,
saw two snowy eagles
and a naked girl.
The one was the other
and the girl was neither.
-from "Qasida of the Dark Doves"

Federico García Lorca is the greatest poet of twentieth-century Spain and one of the world's most influential modernist writers. Christopher Maurer, a leading García Lorca scholar and editor, has substantially revised FSG's earlier edition of the collected poems of this charismatic and complicated figure, who-as Maurer says in his illuminating introduction-"spoke unforgettably of all that most interests us: the otherness of nature, the demons of personal identity and artistic creation, sex, childhood, and death."

Review:

Long regarded as one of the premier Spanish modernists, Federico García Lorca's newly revised Collected Poems is a welcome contribution to this outstanding poet's prolific body of work. This bilingual edition includes many recently discovered poems and revised translations, updating the completeness of the verse produced by Lorca during his short life (he died at 38). Lorca's poetry is quirky, playful, not only filled with orange groves and olive trees, but a strange, physical world where a river has "garnet whiskers" or there exists a "recumbent sky" or "mummified ocean." Lorca wrote love poems, though we can never be sure what exactly is desired. His poetry isn't abstract, but the images are sometimes a bit out of reach--if anything, he tried to give the abstract a physical presence. For example, a lovers' exchange is given dimension in "The Poet Tells the Truth": "Let the skein never end / of I love you you love me, ever burnt / with decrepit sun and old moon." What Lorca wrote of a friend gored by a bull in "Lament for Ignacio Sánchez Mejías" seems applicable to his poetry generally: "I sing of his elegance in words that moan / and I remember a sad breeze in the olive grove." Collected Poems is an important addition to any poetry collection, especially for those unfamiliar with Lorca or those who wish to read the poems in their original Spanish. --Michael Ferch

Book Description Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2002. Paperback. Condition: New. First Edition. This specific softcover book is in new condition with a cover that has sharp edges and corners and has a tight binding. The pages are clean, crisp, unmarked and uncreased. We package all books in custom cardboard book boxes for shipment and ship daily with tracking numbers.; "Life in the shadow of death, desire frustrated at every turn, and speech overtaken by the unknown are the concerns of this charismatic Spanish poet and dramatist. In the past decade, Lorca (1898-1936) has become an icon, and because so many new manuscripts, translations, and commentaries have surfaced, the previous edition of his collected poems (LJ 3/15/92) has been expanded and revised. It now incorporates Poet in New York (LJ 2/1/88), a volume of poems he composed during the nine months in 1929-30 that he spent in the city, which he deemed "one of the most useful experiences" of his life. Also included is a more "reliably ordered" version of one of the poet's most ambitious early sequences, "In the Garden of the Lunar Grapefruits," and some new translations by Angela Jaffray, Robert Nasatir, Jerome Rothenberg, and Galway Kinnell. All in all, the revised edition has about 100 more pages of text and about seven more pages of notes. The original edition should suffice for general collections, but for collections specializing in poetry or Spanish literature, this revised version should not be missed."; Revised Series; 9.1 X 6.1 X 1.9 inches; 1056 pages.
