Product description

Review

"[Arvio's] translations are filled with intelligent decisions and a keen sense of the music in the original poems . . . Her ear for Lorca's delicate and difficult tones is sensitive and sharp, indeed often inspired." --Colm Tóibín, The New York Review of Books

"There is a deep communion between artist and translator in these subtle, nuanced, fiercely economic poems . . . [Arvio] captures the élan and enchantment of García Lorca's work, opening his fascinating world to a new generation of English readers." --Lizabeth Paravisini-Gebert, The Yale Review

"A triumphant addition to the corpus of Lorca translations . . . Arvio's mix of careful, thoughtful research and respect for the spontaneous energy of poetry makes this volume invaluable to any English-speaker smitten by Lorca's work." --August Smith, BookPage

"Riveting . . . Lorca's poems from Spain are a poetry of dreams and journeys and glimpses from balconies, of sunbaked meadows and realms of erotic yearning . . . Arvio is a supple translator, and she has delivered a personal book . . . [Her] rich and gripping retranslation of 'Blood Wedding' [is] of a piece with Lorca's blood-warm verse." --Dwight Garner, The New York Times

"A beautiful English translation . . . We see [Lorca] not as a traveler in a foreign land, as we usually do, but as a historian of his own 'country, ' Andalusia . . . We see that Lorca's poetry challenged, however subtly and playfully, a vision of Spanish history that had erased ethnic minorities, especially those from Andalusia, from its annals." --Bécquer Seguín, Slate

"Those already familiar with Mr. Lorca's work will enjoy working through [Arvio's] translations . . . while newcomers will find her book an accessible and immensely useful introduction to a poet of enormous gifts and tremendous influence in Spain and South America." --Claire Hopley, The Washington Times

"Arvio brings Lorca's slow stylistic shift into full view, from early bright fragments and abbreviated lines to extended syllabics . . . This omnibus volume benefits greatly from the in-depth introduction, an extensive bibliography, and several poems never before published in English." --Diego Báez, Booklist

Book Description

For the first time in a quarter century, a major new volume of translations of the beloved poetry of Federico Garcia Lorca, by award-winning poet Sarah Arvio.
