Sketches of Spain • Federico Garcia Lorca
224 pages • Serif • 31 May, 2012 [PB]
Drawn and written when he was 17, Federico Garcia Lorca’s beautiful Sketches of Spain has been translated into English for the first time.
“Lorca’s murder by Nationalist gunmen during the Spanish Civil War at the age of 38 makes any reading of Lorca’s thoughts on death resonate with totemic force. His own body, never found or identified, has become part of the Spanish earth that he loved.”
