Federico García Lorca’s poetry and poetics have been translated and creatively reimagined by generations of American poets. How can we begin to account for his legacy? Join Professor Jonathan Mayhew (Spanish and Portuguese, University of Kansas), author of the study Apocryphal Lorca: Translation, Parody, Kitsch (2009), poet David Shapiro, and poet and translator Mark Statman for a discussion of Lorca’s work and his impact on American literature.
