The Andalusian Dog Finds Answers

Pablo Medina

About This Poem


"It is said that the title of the 1929 surrealist film Un chien andalou (An Andalusian Dog) by Salvador Dalí and Luis Buñuel was an indirect and none-too-kind reference to Federico García Lorca, the third point of that creative triangle, who was born just outside the Andalusian city of Granada. The sigh in the last line refers to the Moorish King Boabdil, who sighed deeply as he abandoned Granada to the armies of Ferdinand and Isabella in 1492."
—Pablo Medina
