- This thesis treats essentially with death, expressed in the poetry and plays of García Lorca. To understand his poetry, one must pay attention to the poetic theory of "duende" of which Lorca says he is possessed. The conception of "duende" of García Lorca corresponds to a certain form of fatalism and indigenous belief of Andalucia. García Lorca has also prepared a festival of cante jondo in collaboration with Manual de Falla. When Lorca speaks of "duende," it is very human, and differs from "Musa" or "ángel. " This means that "duende" is a presupposition of death as a human being. From his first volume of verse "Libro de poemas" on, he mentions and chants death, but the works in which he starts speaking intensively of death are: "Cante jondo" and Romancero gitano." In "Cante jondo" he treats of death as if he admires it. "Romancero gitano" is about the tragic destiny of the gipsies. Here we can find words as: knife , dagger, battle, death and persecution, especially persecution of the gipsies by the guardia civil (police).
