Lorca, FedericoM García

Lorca, FedericoM García (1898–1936) Spanish poet and dramatist. His poetry, from Gypsy Ballads (1928) to The Poet in New York (1940), was internationally acclaimed. In theatre, his early balletic farces gave way to tragedies of frustrated womanhood, such as the trilogy Blood Wedding (1933), Yerma (1935), and The House of Bernarda Alba (1936). He was killed by Nationalist soldiers at the start of the Spanish Civil War.
