The notion of duende a demonic earth spirit embodying irrationality, earthiness, and a heightened awareness of death became a cornerstone of Lorca s poetics. In Search of Duende gathers Lorca s writings about the duende and three art forms susceptible to it: dance, music, and the bullfight. A bilingual sampling of Lorca s poetry is also included, making this an excellent introduction to Lorca s poetry and prose for American readers.
