A new translation with notes by Zachary Jean Chartkoff of the Duende poetry of the great Andalusian poet Federico Garcia Lorca. Duende, Federico explained, is that mysterious power which we all feel but no philosopher can ever explain; the very essence of Garcia Lorcas poetry. Very much like the idea of soul in jazz -- it is creative ecstasy, the struggle of life and death, the tension in art that we are all aware of when we hear it. Updated with art and a new Introduction, "A Blazon of Sand and Moon" includes original translations of: Teoria y juego del duende/ The Theory and Function of Duende; his astounding essay on his ars poetica. Romancero gitano/ Gypsy Ballads; his collection of early poetry that made him one of the most celebrated poets in the Spanish language. Llanto por Ignacio Sanchez Mejias/ The Lament for Ignacio Sanchez Mejias; possibly one of the greatest odes ever written.
