Upon his return from the United States, on January 15, 1931, in La Gaceta Literaria (The Literary Gazette), signed by Gil Benumeya, Lorca praises the racial community and argues that being born in Granada prevents him from any kind of rejection. “I believe that being from Granada inclines me to have a sympathetic understanding of the persecuted. Of the gypsy, of black people, of Jews…, of the Moorish trait instilled in us. Granada smells of mystery, of something that cannot be and yet is. That does not exist, but influences. Or that influences precisely because it does not exist, that loses the body and preserves the increased aroma. That is cornered and tries to graft onto everything that surrounds it, and threatens to help dissolve it”.
