Abstract

Articles on childlore in Lorca's 1921 collection "Libro de poemas" generally have dealt either with the identification of Andalusian sources or else with the poet's employment of particular songs and games, folklore's provenance and products; but folklore is a matter of process as well, a dynamic of constancy and change of which Lorca himself was keenly aware, as apparent in such essays as "Sepulcros de Burgos" and "Las nanas infantiles." In "Libro de poemas" this dynamic afforded the young poet access to the full force of tradition without its oppressive weight: in particular, the metapoetic "Pajarita de papel" employs the dynamic of childlore to reintegrate a number of personal, philosophical and poetic fragmentations and in its Dionysian evocations lays the groundwork for the duende that was later to develop.
