El Amor Duerme en el Pecho del Poeta

El Amor Duerme en el Pecho del Poeta

In 1984, ABC brought to light the love sonnets of Federico García Lorca, making quite a stir. The sonnet The Beloved Sleeps on the Poet’s Breast, the next to the last in the series Sonnets of Dark Love, is the first in which he speaks of a male lover. In November, 1983, a clandestine edition of the sonnets came out. In March of the following year, ABC officially published his 11 sonnets, for the first time together and in their original order.

Translation:

You will never understand how much I love you.
Because you sleep in me and are asleep.
I hide you, crying, pursued by a voice of penetrating steel.
