„Melvyn Bragg and guests dis­cuss the Span­ish poet and play­wright Fed­eri­co Gar­cia Lor­ca (1898–1936), author of Blood Wed­ding, Yer­ma and The House of Bernar­da Alba, who mixed the tra­di­tions of Andalu­sia with the avant-garde. He found his first major suc­cess with his Gyp­sy Bal­lads, although Dali, once his close friend, mocked him for these, accus­ing Lor­ca of being too con­ser­v­a­tive. He pre­ferred per­form­ing his poems to pub­lish­ing them, and his plays marked a revival in Span­ish the­atre. He was cap­tured and killed by Nation­al­ist forces at the start of the Civ­il War, his body nev­er recov­ered, and it’s been sug­gest­ed this was pun­ish­ment for his pol­i­tics and for being open­ly gay. He has since been seen as the most impor­tant Span­ish play­wright and poet of the last cen­tu­ry.
With Maria Del­ga­do, Pro­fes­sor of Cre­ative Arts at the Roy­al Cen­tral School of Speech and Dra­ma, Uni­ver­si­ty of Lon­don, Fed­eri­co Bonad­dio, Read­er in Mod­ern Span­ish at King’s Col­lege Lon­don, and Sarah Wright, Pro­fes­sor of His­pan­ic Stud­ies and Screen Arts at Roy­al Hol­loway, Uni­ver­si­ty of Lon­don.“
