Federico Garcia Lorca

Federico Garcia Lorca (1898-1936) was perhaps the most important Spanish-language writer of the first half of the 20th century, renowned for both his poetry and his plays. During his short life, he wrote thirteen plays, the best-known of which are Blood Wedding (1932), Yerma (1934), and The House of Bernarda Alba (1936). In the early 1930s, Lorca became the director of La Barraca, a theater company that toured the provinces performing Spanish classical plays in peasant villages. Between tours, he wrote Blood Wedding, which brought him international attention. When the Spanish Civil War broke out, Lorca was targeted by the fascist Falangist forces, both as a gay man and as an artist prominently allied with the Republican government. He was arrested on August 16, 1936 and murdered the night of August 18. His burial site has never been found.
