Federico García Lorca

20th Century Spanish Poet

What Lorca wrote in his short life made it impossible to imagine the poetry not only of Spain and the Spanish language everywhere but of the whole Western world, since then, without him.
—W.S. Merwin
What a poet! I have never seen grace and genius, a winged heart and a crystalline waterfall, come together in anyone else as they did in him. Federico García Lorca was the extravagant ‘duende,’ his was a magnetic joyfulness that generated a test for life in his heart and radiated it like a planet.
—Pablo Neruda
