[To find a kiss of yours]

Federico García Lorca, translated by Sarah Arvio

About This Poem


"'[To find a kiss of yours]' is an untitled poem from an undated manuscript by Federico García Lorca. Though the style matches that of the young poet, what is unusual for that time is the erotic frankness—embedded in strange and striking imagery—that is a feature of Lorca's late great work."
—Sarah Arvio


Sarah Arvio's Poet in Spain, a translation of poetry by Federico García Lorca will be published by Alfred A. Knopf in November. She lives in Maryland, near the Chesapeake Bay.



Federico García Lorca was born in Granada, Spain, in 1898. He wrote numerous books of poems and plays, many of which were translated into English and published in the United States, including The Poetical Works of Federico García Lorca: Selected Verse (Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 1994) and In Search of Duende (New Directions, 1998). He died in 1936.
