Library Journal Review

Lorca scholar Gibson, author of the authoritative Death of Lorca ( LJ 7/73), revised and translated his two-part work in Spanish to produce this colorful, articulate, and well-documented study of the life of one of 20th-century Spain's most famous men of letters. Adroitly eschewing critical analysis of works (no mean feat in a literary biography), Gibson focuses instead on the poet's temperament, mood swings, and acquaintances; especially commendable is the unabashed candor with which he confronts Lorca's homosexuality, which the author analytically interprets as the underlying, pervasive motive for much of Lorca's behavior and output. An indispensable contribution to Lorca literature and currently the front runner for the definitive Lorca biography.-- Lawrence Olszewski, OCLC, Dublin, Ohio (c) Copyright 2010.
