In Search of Duende

By: Federico Garcia Lorca

$10.95

In Search of Duende contains essays and a full bilingual sampling of Federico Garcia Lorca’s best poems, involving the notion of duende, a cornerstone of Lorca’s poetics. In his lecture “Play and Theory of Duende,” he says, “there are neither maps nor exercises to help us find the duende. We only know that he burns the blood like a poultice of broken glass.” A demonic earth spirit embodying irrationality, earthiness, and a heightened awareness of death, duende is present in three major art forms: dance, music, and the bullfight.
