Federico García Lorca
Federico García Lorca was born in a small village near Granada in 1898. He was a Spanish poet, dramatist and theatre director and an emblematic member of the Generation of '27. On the 19th of August 1936, at the beginning of the Spanish Civil War, he was murdered by members of the Fascist group the 'Falange'. García Lorca´s assassination was part of a campaign of mass executions to eliminate all the supporters and allies of the Popular Front. Later, the Franco regime placed a general ban on Federico García Lorca's work. Consequently, his plays "Bodas de sangre", "Yerma" and "La casa de Bernarda Alba" were prohibited during the Franco years. Lorca is now universally recognised as one of the greatest Spanish poets of the century, and he is certainly Spain's greatest dramatist since the Golden Age. We regulary organise conferences and workshops on Federico Gracía Lorca's works, as well as guided visits to the Lorca Museums in Granada and Fuentevaqueros.
