The Crime Was in Granada
Lorca was killed at the onset of the Spanish Civil War — ; it was a murder almost certainly politically motivated in part. The poem was first published in memory of Lorca in the newspaper Ayuda on October 17, Lorca is said to have been killed by supporters of General Francisco Franco , who were intent on eliminating influential artists and other figures who did not support the general in his attempt to take over Spain. Others suggest that a personal vendetta was involved and that Lorca's support of those opposing Franco was only part of what instigated his murder. Either way, this killing was a shameful assassination of a great literary figure whose involvement in politics was minimal, despite his political convictions; this shame is a major theme in Machado's poem. That is, by emphasizing so strongly that Lorca was killed in his own hometown he was born in just outside Granada, in Fuente Vaqueros, and his family moved to Granada in , Machado suggests the degree to which Lorca's death was a terrible betrayal of fundamental decencies. Trueblood, include the poem, and most larger libraries own a copy of Trueblood's translations.
We set out to discover his hometown of Granada through his eyes. He would have torn him apart! His verse was emotional, sensual, unpredictable: everything my environment was not. The man himself was renowned for being outlandish, outspoken and utterly unwilling to compromise. They were also the qualities that made him one of the most popular poets of the 20th century.
