20th Century Spanish Poet
Federico García Lorca (1898-1936) was a Spanish poet and dramatist. He attended the University of Granada, the University of Madrid (where he studied law), and Columbia University. In 1936, at the young age of thirty-eight, Lorca was killed by fascist rebels.
“What a poet! I have never seen grace and genius, a winged heart and a crystalline waterfall, come together in anyone else as they did in him. Federico García Lorca was the extravagant 'duende,' his was a magnetic joyfulness that generated a test for life in his heart and radiated it like a planet.”
— Pablo Neruda on Federico García Lorca's
