The manuscript consists of four first paintings, the Solo del pastor bobo (The Silly Shepherd’s Speech) and a fifth painting. Lorca noted that the main characters were horses and that it was divided into “six acts and a murder”. The manuscript is typewritten, with abundant autograph corrections. There was another, given to the Loynaz family, which was apparently destroyed, as Miguel García-Posada points out, by Carlos María Loynaz. The study is, therefore, of the incomplete manuscript by Martínez Nadal, first published in 1976.
