ABOUT THE POET FEDERICO GARCIA LORCA
friend Jean Vauriot, during the Euromeeting, invited us to attend an evening
party about the Spanish poet Federico Garcia Lorca, just as he had done in
Mallorca, where he narrated for us Chopin and
Georges Sand´s love affair.
Victoria Lopesino, President of the Spanish Federation, accepted to lend the
warmth of her voice and her ardor, to make us feel the depth and intensity of
the feelings contained in some of the poems, that only the melodiousness of the
Spanish tongue is capable of restoring.
With his acute sense of precision in the research and his passion for poetry,
Jean knew how to make us discover, or rediscover, one of the greatest, if not
the greatest, Spanish poets, through his hectic life, through the work of this
poet, painter, and play writer, from his love affairs and his fight for
Throughout the evening, we searched deeper into the sentimental, tumultuous,
agitated, and passionate itinerary that Lorca assumed. Jean´s merit consisted in
laying out for us bridges between the hard times of the poet´s life and the
dramatic intensity of his work.
With passion, rhythm, and melodiousness of the poetry, Jean made us live
intensely and emotionally the last moments of Lorca´s life until his death in
Viznar, in August 1936.
A lovely evening…
