The contributors are a stimulating blend of academics, poets and theatre professionals, all responding in a variety of ways to the creative challenges of Lorcas legacy.

Alan Lyddiard and other directors discuss staging Lorcas plays. The celebrated artist and stage designer Frederic Amat talks about his filming of Lorcas surrealist screenplay Voyage to the Moon. Professor Paul Julian Smith of University of Cambridge and other academic specialists discuss the continuing vitality of Lorcas poetry, theatre and paintings. Experienced translators talk about the problems and opportunities in translating Lorcas poems and plays, and take up the creative challenge of producing adaptations of a single sonnet, Wounds of Love.

There is also a translation of an ode to Lorca by Pablo Neruda and contributions by leading poets Brendan Kennelly, Merryn Williams and John Clifford.
