Federico del Sagrado Corazón de Jesús García Lorca was born in a small town west of Granada, Spain, on June 5, 1898. He was a poet and playwright. His collections of poetry included Gypsy Ballads and Poet in New York. His plays included The Butterfly's Evil Spell, The Shoemaker's Prodigious Wife, Don Perlimplin, Blood Wedding, Yerma, and The House of Bernarda Alba. In 1936, he was assassinated by an anti-communist death squad during the beginning of the Spanish Civil War. Franco's regime placed a ban on Lorca's work and this was not lifted until 1953. It was not until Franco died that Lorca's work could be openly discussed in Spain. (Bowker Author Biography) Federico Garcia Lorca, born in Granada in 1898, was murdered by Franco's soldiers in 1936.
