This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Frederico García lived in Manhattan from 1929 to 1930, and the poetry he wrote about the city, <I>Poet in New York,</I> was posthumously published in 1940. Eighty years after Lorca’s sojourn to America, Nathalie Handal, a poet from New York, went to Spain to write <I>Poet in Andalucía.</I> Handal recreated Lorca’s journey in reverse.

From Publishers Weekly

Jan 16, 2012 – Handal s newest collection is an ambitious work that looks back at Spanish poet Federico Garc a Lorca s 1940 classic, Poet in New York. Handal says she recreates Lorca s journey in reverse, by narrating her journey through Spain. Accompanied by comprehensive clarifying notes and a travelogue, Handal s collection resonates with a scholarly understanding of Spain s religious and linguistic influences. Sometimes the poems are dialogues with Lorca and other past Spanish literary luminaries; other times, Handal is haunted by their influence. Everything we hear/ is the echo of a voice we can t hear,/ everything we see/ the reflection of something we can t see. Ruins, landscapes, and Spanish architecture fascinate Handal. When we leave home/ we never stop looking for/ images of the land on our faces/ (These words were written on a wall by the Mexquita del Cristo de la Luz), she writes. Arabic, Spanish, Ladino Catalan, and fragments of other languages are woven together as the poems muse over borders between where one voice or language ends and another begins: Tell me, what are borders? Handal asks in her segmented poem, Qit as, which translates to fragments. She continues in another section of the same poem, we gave birth/ in languages not our own,/ we wanted to hang/ their photos/ but/ there were/ no walls.
