Ort zone and read the work of noted poet laureate Federico Garc a Lorca I had read his play Blood Wedding and Yerma in a Spanish literature course while in college and came to realize the epth of his work yet I had never been exposed to his brilliant poetry While my Hispanic Heritage Month selections are primarily centered on the Latin American experience I BWWM (Interracial African American Billionaire Baby Romance Marriage Urban) 40 (Interracial African American Billionaire Baby Romance Marriage Urban) 40: Billionaires Secret Baby (Interracial African American Romance Urban Baby Romance Short Stories) decided upon Garcia Lorca s Gypsy Ballads to show appreciation to the Spanish origins of Hispanic cultureFrederico Garcia Lorca is regarded as the most popular of Spanish poets and playwrights Gypsy Ballads is considered his best selling work and many feel it is one of the top poetry collections of all time Many of his poems focus on theepth of the human experience which is a main reason I read poetry to feel the gamut of emotions over the course of a few moving stanzas Themes experienced in Garcia Lorca s work include Spare the Child: The Religious Roots of Punishment and the Psychological Impact of Physical Abuse desireeath as well as human longing and social repression The latter theme propelled Franco s supporters to kill the poet at the beginning of the Spanish Civil War as a figurehead of the repressed people I admit that any pseudo analysis I give on these ballads will not Managing Activism A Guide to Dealing with Activists and Pressure Groups do justice to the laureate s work For this reason I chose to read a translated version by Jane Duran and Gloria Garcia Lorca the poet s niece which also includes commentary by noted translator Christopher Maurer as well as an essay by Garcia Lorca himself Because of theepth of the poems and my love of history I was actually intrigued by the essays at the end than some of the harder to grasp albeit beautiful poetryThe Gypsy Ballads speak to the myth of the people of Andalusia in the south of Spain In addition to the eath already permeating Spain leading up to the Guerra Civil the ballads feature the patchwork of people that make up Spain s southern province including the shared history of Christians Muslims and Jews The poetry contains many biblical images which speak to each of these people In The Unfaithful Wife we see according to Lorca Soledad Montoya whose pain is emblematic of the Andalusian people This poem as much as any in the collection speaks of the gypsies as Lorca writes so elouently As a true gypsy I gave her a large sewing basket of straw yellow satin and I id not want to fall in love because having a husband she told me she was a maiden when I took her to the river Other poems include biblical references to archangels Michael Rafael and Gabriel Reading these ballads over the new year gave them an added layer of religiosity that added to the prestige and beauty of these worksThe final poem in the collection Thamar and Amnon reflects on the Jewish and gypsy history of the region Garcia Lorca notes that Andalusians refer to Tamar as altas mares high seas The wording in this ballad appears almost mystical in proportion as it speaks of the gypsy culture of Cordoba and in proportion as it speaks of the gypsy culture of Cordoba and While reading it through I felt as though the history of hidden Jewish people flowed from the pages Some highlights include Tamar s ream with imagery of birds palm trees and oves all evoking biblical references Another stanza alludes to King David s harp as the poet writes Furious violator Amnon flees on his horse Black men point arrows at him from the walls and watchtowers And when the four hooves
WERE FOUR ECHOES DAVID WITH HISfour echoes David with his cut the strings of his harp As the conclusion of this moving collection I thought this ballad summarized the shared religious history of southern Spain where three religions lived in relative harmony for seven centuries Unfortunately with the rise of fascism minority people were oppressed with Garcia Lorca s becoming a symbol for gypsies and the other human suffering which he wrote so elouently aboutReading the Gypsy Ballads only as poetry collection Academic Motherhood: How Faculty Manage Work and Family does noto justice to the brilliance of Spanish poet laureate Federico Garc a Lorca Reading it combined as art and a history of the Andalusian region of Spain speaks to the beauty of Garcia Lorca s work In some cases it took me many times to begin to grasp the meaning of the words written on these pages I Alcohol Fuel: A Guide to Making and Using Ethanol as a Renewable Fuel did appreciate the essay by the poet at the end of the collection which assisted in bringing meaning to the words which he so beautifully wroteuring his brief life I can see why Gypsy Ballads is one of the top selling poetry collections of all time as I feel the beauty of long shared multicultural history flow from its pages45 stars.
