An American Lorca?
This chapter argues that Lorca's poetic afterlife in the United States has its own context, as worthy of respect as the cultural and literary context of Lorca's Spain. Understandably, American poets did not attempt a scholarly reconstruction of the circumstances in which Lorca wrote, or delve deeply into Spanish literary history in order to arrive at a better understanding of his poetic tradition. The real strength of the American Lorca is its apocryphal character, its lack of respect for the original context, not its scrupulously accurate treatment of the original text.
