Four Ideas about Lorca (I): Desacralization
I am developing a set of four ideas that define what I think the right approach to Lorca should be. The first is desacralization. By this I mean: do not treat him as a sacred figure, a Jesus Christ of Spanish democracy and transcendent genius. He is a genius, of course, but when you mix the genius factor with the martyrdom, you get all sorts of foolishness.
