Sample text

His affections come to rest on a wounded butterfly, an ‘otherworldly’ being to whom he confesses undying love. She, however, fails to reciprocate, abandoning the lovelorn suitor at the end of the play. The ‘known’ Lorcas 41 Beyond mimeticism: the play in performance Readings of The Butterfly’s Evil Spell have been decisively shaped by the contentious reception of the first performance, on 22 March 1920, marked by jeers, heckling and calls for insecticide to be poured on the scorpion woodcutter (Gibson 1989: 97–8; Vilches de Frutos and Dougherty 1992b: 23–31).

A very rare specimen of primitive song, the oldest in all Europe’, developed by the gypsies on arriving in Andalusia and a profound influence on musical composition from Felipe Pedrell and Isaac Albéniz to Falla (OCIII 35–6; GL 1991: 25), Lorca deemed the singers or cantaors as expressive mediums of the Andalusian people, eschewing affectation for embodiment. If Gypsy Ballads, his 1928 anthology, now ‘the most widely read, most often recited, most studied and most celebrated book of poems in the whole of Spanish literature’ (Gibson 1989: 136), positioned him as the public voice of Andalusia’s downtrodden gypsies, then the poems he crafted inspired by cante jondo, subsequently published in 1931, consolidated that view.

Where Lorca may share with ValleInclán the sense of theatre as a sensorial art, appealing to both eye and ear (Sánchez 1950: 152), his theatre is ultimately more practical in its articulation of the discourses of performance and in its manipulation of the dramaturgical discourses of the Renaissance dramas of Calderón de la Barca and Lope de Vega 20 Life, politics and mythology (OCIII 218–21; Guardia 1952: 357–8; Nieva 1996: 124; Sánchez 1950: 102–23). During his time in Madrid (1919–36) Lorca came into contact with a range of the figures currently shaping the city’s literary and cultural scene.
