Apocryphal Lorca

Jonathan Mayhew

University of Chicago Press

This chapter addresses the phenomenon of “deep image” poetry, a movement in midcentury U.S. poetics that reportedly owes a portion of its initial impetus to Lorca. It argues that the debt of deep image poetry to Lorca is less substantial than many critics have assumed. The founders of this movement drew inspiration from many sources aside from the “Spanish surrealism,” while Lorca himself has a minor role in the later development of this style.

Keywords:   deep image poetry, American poetry, Spanish surrealism, Federico García Lorca
