Adding a Chapter

What Lorca Knew

Preface**
Chapter 1: Hermeneutical Introduction** 1
Chapter 2: What Lorca Knew**

Chapter 4: The Grain of the Voice: Poetry and Performance*
Chapter 5: An Anatomy of Influence: Lorca in Contemporary Spanish Poetry**
Chapter 6: New York Variations: O’Hara, Motherwell, Strayhorn**
Chapter 7: A Poets’ Theater: Lorquian Drama in the US
Chapter 8: Queering Lorca
Epilogue: Elegy For Modernism

It no longer feels like a minor footnote to Apocryphal Lorca, but as a book as solid as that one was.
