Gypsy Romances & Poem of the Deep Song is the first book in English devoted entirely to Lorca's two collections of Gypsy-inspired verse.

Gypsy Romances (Romancero Gitano) is, of course, by far the world's best-known book of Spanish poetry. Less known but equally entrancing is Lorca's tribute to Flamenco: Poem of the Deep Song (Poema del Cante Jondo). This celebration of Spain's quintessential music is as fragrant as Manuel de Falla's Nights in the Gardens of Spain or Debussy's Espa a.

Trained as a classical pianist, Lorca's first love and lifelong passion was music.

This version, by a prize-winning poet and translator who is also an orchestral musician and composer, captures as never before the music of Garc a Lorca's verse.

Dan Veach, founding editor of Atlanta Review, one of the world's leading international poetry journals, has been honored with the Willis Barnstone Translation Prize, America's most prestigious single-poem translation award.

His translations of Iraqi war poetry, Flowers of Flame (Michigan State University Press, 2008) won an Independent Publisher Book Award. My translation of all the major Anglo-Saxon poetry, Beowulf & Beyond, has just appeared from Lockwood Press.

Mr. Veach own poetry has been published and anthologized worldwide, and his collection Elephant Water won the Georgia Author of the Year Award.
