Although Federico García Lorca is well-known to the English speaking public as a playwright and as the author of Romancero gitano and Poeta en Nueva York, his early poetry has received surprisingly scant critical consideration. D. Gareth WaltersMoreAlthough Federico García Lorca is well-known to the English speaking public as a playwright and as the author of Romancero gitano and Poeta en Nueva York, his early poetry has received surprisingly scant critical consideration.

D. Gareth Walters corrects this imbalance by concentrating on Lorcas work up to and including Canciones, the culmination of his early poetry, which was published in 1927.Beginning with a detailed survey of Lorcas juvenilia and early published poetry, Walters traces the development of Lorcas work up to Canciones and offers a full and detailed reading of that collection which explicates many poems often thought to be obscure or enigmatic. Rather than attempting to decode the poetrys symbols and images or interpret it by reference to extra-literary concerns, Walters focuses instead on the constitution of meaning in Lorcas work.

He offers a valuable new way of reading Lorca that makes full use of modern scholarship while also placing the poetry in its poetic, cultural and intellectual contexts. Canciones and the Early Poetry of Lorca is a pioneering reassessment of the early writing of one of the most significant Spanish writers of the twentieth century.
