A reflection on Federico Garcia Lorca's life, his haunting death, and the fame that reinvigorated the marvelous in the modern world "A galaxy of critical insights into the cultural shock waves circling and crisscrossing Lorca's execution and his unknown resting place, there is not a single book on Lorca like this one. "-Andres Zamora, Vanderbilt University There is something fundamentally unfinished about the life and work of Federico Garcia Lorca (1898-1936), and not simply because his life ended abruptly. Noel Valis reveals how this quality gives shape to the ways in which he has been continuously re-imagined since his death. Lorca's execution at the start of the Spanish Civil War was not only horrific but transformative, setting in motion many of the poet's afterlives. He is intimately tied to both an individual and a collective identity, as the people's poet, a gay icon, and fabled member of a dead poets' society. The specter of his violent death continues to haunt everything connected to Lorca, fueling the desire to fill in the gaps in the poet's biography.
"A galaxy of critical insights into the cultural shock waves circling and crisscrossing Lorca' s execution and his unknown resting place, there is not a single book on Lorca like this one. "-Andres Zamora, Vanderbilt University "An example of cultural history at its best, Valis' s superbly written exploration of Lorca' s contested afterlives demonstrates once again why she is our leading scholar of modern Spanish letters. "-Gustavo Perez Firmat, Columbia University "Noel Valis elucidates the enduring appeal of the great Andalusian writer. Arguing that the bold nature of his gifts could not have been adequately appreciated in his brief life, she maintains that only the vastness of death can accommodate our growing understanding of Lorca' s innovative accomplishments. "-Jaime Manrique, author of Eminent Maricones
Noel Valis is professor and director of undergraduate studies for Spanish at Yale University. She is the author of Sacred Realism: Religion and the Imagination in Modern Spanish Narrative.
