Example text

Lorca’s interest in the gypsies, and in their contribution to Andalusian culture, dates as far back as the cante jondo festival of 1922, and was strengthened by his travels throughout Andalusia (see, for example, the letter to his brother written from Lanjarón in 1926 [Epistolario, pp. 329–31). Lorca’s primitivistic image of the gypsies, a group harshly marginalized by Spanish society, feeds on the conviction that they live in greater harmony with nature than others and enjoy greater imaginative freedom from societal constraints; see for example, the ‘Romance de la Guardia Civil española’ [Ballad of the Spanish Civil Guard] or the ‘Escena del teniente coronel de la Guardia Civil’ [Scene of the Lieutenant Colonel of the Civil Guard], a dialogue appended to Poema del cante jondo.

The composer places himself on a poetic plane that is far from direct impression . . He acquires a greater capacity for evocation . . He proceeds not by ‘presentation’ but by ‘reflection’. (Maurer 2000, p. 33) An article by the literary critic Enrique Diez-Canedo identifies the same characteristics in Lorca’s own Poema del cante jondo: The fact that we run into the name of Falla at the very beginning of Lorca’s apprenticeship, tells us much about the character of Lorca’s poetry, where the popular motif, taken directly from the people, turns into free artistic creation, 16 Christopher Maurer, Federico García Lorca y su ‘Arquitectura del cante jondo’ (Granada: Comares, 2000), 33.
