UNIVERSO LORCA - LORCA’S UNIVERSE…


… is a new website which as the name suggests presents a comprehensive panorama of Lorca’s life, times and works.


Here's an external link to it.



It points to Lorca sites in and around Granada - Lugares Lorquianos - and includes three Lorca tours - Rutas Lorquianas - Vega, city centre, and Víznar/Alfacar. 


There is an agenda of upcoming events, including this one - an exhibition running until 5 June 2o20 at the Museo Casa Natal de Federico García Lorca in Fuente Vaqueros - which covers the poet's life in rural environment of the Vega, including the  Cortijo de Daimuz, the Vega de Zujaira , the fountain of la Teja on the banks of the River Cubillas the house where Lorca was born in Fuente Vaqueros, and the house at Valderrubio, where Lorca spent his summers until 1926, when his father acquired the Huerta de San Vicente in Granada.  It also touches on the urban environment constituted by the three flats his family lived in between 1908 y 1933, when his parents, following in their son's footsteps, left Granada for Madrid.


There is a sort of glossary  with brief biodata of close on 100 people who played a more or less important role in the poet’s life (Quién fue quién).

 

Last but not least we find a complete biography in fifteen chapters (Biografía de Federico) and a pointer to Lorca’s works, classified under poetry, prose, theatre, and ‘others’ and ordered chronologically.
