Federico García Lorca (1898-1936) was a Spanish poet and playwright. He's known for such collections of poems as Romancero gitano (usually translated as Gypsy Ballads) and Poeta en Nueva York (Poet in New York). His most famous plays are Bodas de sangre (Blood Wedding), Yerma and La casa de Bernanda Alba (The House of Bernarda Alba). He was killed by Falangists in the first months of the Spanish Civil War for his left-wing sympathies and his homosexuality.
While Lorca is one of the most well-known Spanish writers, he's less popular in English-speaking countries than in Spanish-speaking world and some other countries like Greece.
Lorca as a Character in Fiction
- Spanish-British 2008 movie Little Ashes portrays relationship between García Lorca and Salvador Dalí, played by Javier Beltrán and Robert Pattinson
- Lorca, like many other Spanish historical figures, appears as a character in the Spanish series El ministerio del tiempo (English title The Ministry of Time)
- Lorca, together with Dalí and the director Luis Buñuel, is one of the main characters of Los caballeros de la orden de Toledo (The Knights of the Orden of Toledo), graphic novel by Juanfran Cabrera and Javierre set in 1920s in the Residencia de Estudiantes
- Los amores oscuros (Dark Loves), a novel by Manuel Francisco Reina, is about Lorca's romantic relationship with Juan Ramírez de Lucas, to whom he possibly dedicated his Sonetos del amor oscuro (Sonnets of Dark Love)
- Lorca is a character of Immortal Love, a Gustavo Bécquer/OFC vampire romance novel in which he and the Spanish poet Gustavo Adolfo Bécquer are immortal vampires
Many (perhaps even majority) of fanworks based on Lorca's life and writings are written in Russian and Spanish, though there are not significant Lorca fandoms anywhere. Fics featuring Lorca as a character are usually based on The Ministry of Time series and the Little Ashes movie.
- la historia de este país es como un chiste malo by daruxxa (the history of this country is like a bad joke. The Ministry of Time)
- Мой друг Лорка by Фантазий страждущий герой (My Friend Lorca. Little Ashes)
There are also some RPF stories with him that are not based on any work of fiction.
- a mel és més dolça que la sang by viridiana (honey is sweeter than blood. Lorca/Dalí RPS)
- Мед слаще крови by Lille Prinsen (Honey is Sweeter than Blood. Lorca/Dalí RPS)
Most common Lorca pairings are with Salvador Dalí, the famous surrealist painter with whom he was in love in real life. He also has been paired with Julián Martínez from The Ministry of Time, Canadian singer Leonard Cohen, Spain from Hetalia and his real life boyfriends like Rafael Rodríguez Rapún.
