Spanish Literature, Poetry

Born in Fuentevaqueros, Granada in 1898, Federico García Lorca was one of the great Spanish poets and playwrights of the 20th century. He was murdered by Franco's soldiers in 1936.

Suites is one of the most charming and melodious of all of García Lorca's poem series. Written early in his career, most of these poems remained unpublished during his life-time and were later reassembled from notebooks. The first appearance of this work in English was in a small chapbook, titled Suites (Sun & Moon Press), and in the Collected Poems of 1988; but the current edition of Selected Verse contains only a fraction of the important series. This is the first complete single-volume edition of this great work.

Jerome Rothenberg is an internationally known poet and author of over sixty volumes of poems and nine assemblages of innovative and traditional poetry, among them Gematria (Sun & Moon Press). With Milos Sovak, he recently translated a collection of poetry by the Czech author Vítêzslav Nezval.

Book Review(s)


by Anonymous

Some exclamatory and heartfelt, others mordant, whimsical or surreal, the pieces in Suites by Federico Garacia Lorca (1989-1936) are early, short-lined poetic sequences, here translated by the prolific Jerome Rothenberg. "In the little woodlets / with their purples & magnesiums / the princesitas jumping /are baby sparkadillos." Many of these component poems and verses by Spain's master have never before appeared in English.

The restless, energetic verse of Prague's surrealist writer Vitezslav Nezval (1900-1958) should delight and excite American readers; the urban rambles, lists and erotic promises of his Antilyrik & Other Poems echo Whitman, Apollinaire and Rimbaud: "Tell me you reed bouquet / What city in the guts was I just crossing." The above Jerome Rothenberg and Czech expatriate Milos Sovak accompany their translation with a biographical postscript.
