Suites is one of the most charming and melodious of all of Lorca's poem series. Written early in his career, most of these poems remained unpublished during his lifetime and were later reassembled from notebooks. The first appearance of this work in English was in a small chapbook, entitled Suites, and in the Collected Poems of 1988; but the current edition of Selected Verse contains only a fraction of this important series. This is the first complete single-volume edition of this great work.

About the author (2001)

Federico Garcia Lorca was born in 1898, in Andalusia, Spain. A poet and dramatist, and also a gifted painter and pianist, his early popular ballads earned him the title of 'poet of the gypsies'. In 1930 he turned his attention to theatre, visiting remote villages and playing classic and new works for peasant audiences. In 1936, shortly after the outbreak of Civil War, he was murdered by Nationalist partisans. His body was never found.
