Mr. Lorca suffered severe depression and guilt about being a man who loved other men. It's believed that he died in 1936 when soldiers dragged him into a field, shot him and tossed his body into an unmarked grave. Franco's government tried to obliterate Lorca's memory. His books were prohibited, his name forbidden. His poetry has been translated into a dozen languages and his name is known worldwide.
