Languages of publication
The phenomenon of Lorca’s poetry is connected, among others, with his fascina¬tion with Gypsy culture being on one hand a part and parcel of Andalusian identity, and on the other hand universal in its overall character. While referring to Gypsy folklore, and especially its musical component, Lorca managed to create his own, unique poetic idiom, becoming soon recognized as one of the world–known admirers of that ‘cursed race’. This, however, triggered certain problems already during his lifetime. In the article not only Lorca’s allusions to Gypsy mythology are presented as evident in his poetry, but also discussed is his own attitude to the Gypsy motif as well as its various interpretations by both his contemporaries and the posterity.
