Life of García Lorca, Poet

José R. Luna

(Interview published in Crítica of Buenos Aires on May 10,1934)

“My first emotions are linked to the land and to the work in the fields. That is why there is what psychoanalysts would call an agricultural complex in my life. Without this love for the land I would not have been able to write Blood Wedding. And I would not have started my next work Yerma. I find strong evidence of poverty in the land, and I love poverty above everything else, not the sordid and hungry poverty but the blessed poverty, simple and humble, like brown bread”.
