The artistic and intellectual works of Federico García Lorca are a key Transatlantic source for problematizing 20th century Spanish literary and cultural history. Mostly known for his poems and plays, Lorca was also a painter, script writer, musician and "cultural outreach" educator; he was an electrifying figure, who created a lyrical world around his works and his very persona. Lorca spent his childhood and adult life moving between a satellite village of Granada and the capital of Madrid, an orbit only punctured and forever changed by a ten month visit to New York City that turned into a key life experience and the critical basis for his Poet in New York. This seminar will take the participant on a journey across Lorca's life and works, making several passes across his poetic and dramatic masterpieces in order to better comprehend his singular crafting of a world made of color dreams, death, denouncement, love and passion.
