In Search of Duende
In Search of Duende
Second Edition
Edited by Christopher Maurer

An excellent compilation of Lorca's poetry and prose, emphasizing Lorca's notion of the duende, the "earth spirit of irrationality and death."

The notion of "duende"—a demonic earth spirit embodying irrationality, earthiness, and a heightened awareness of death—became a cornerstone of Lorca’s poetics. In Search of Duende gathers Lorca’s writings about the duende and three art forms susceptible to it: dance, music, and the bullfight. A bilingual sampling of Lorca’s poetry is also included, making this an excellent introduction to Lorca’s poetry and prose for American readers. .
