Interior appears clean; bright pages.The first scholarly study in English of all of the graphic works rendered by Spanish poet and playwright Federico Garcia Lorca (1898-1936). "Done between 1923 and 1936, Lorca's renderings of clowns, Spanish ladies, martyrs and saints, gypsies, sailors, and his haunting series of self-portraits cast new light on the rest of his work. They are also striking and memorable in themselves. Some are charming and voluntarily naive. Others are tragic, deathly images, revaling the psychic and aesthetic complexity of Europe's most beloved and widely read modern poet."
