About this Item

Language: English . Brand New Book. In this fascinating study, James Kiosses explores the development of imagery in the plays of Federico Garcia Lorca. Kiosses argues that Lorca s use of poetic imagery becomes more dynamic over time, shaping dialogue and providing dramatic momentum. By employing elements of traditional Spanish romance and techniques used by Gongora, Lope de Vega and Calderon, Lorca s images not only convey meaning, reveal thoughts and heighten emotional content, but also constitute a sub-text that reflects the sequential movement of action and drama. Kiosses contends that the poetic imagery in Lorca s plays eludes many readers because it is often viewed as a means to enrich dialogue rather than as an integral part of it. Although there are numerous critiques of Lorca s theatrical imagery, none has provided an analysis as comprehensive and as interesting as the one Kiosses presents in this work.
