El plan para estos libros
Stainton will ideally be read before the semester starts (students to buy from the bookstore or read in the library; note that it is very inexpensive as an e-book). Copies of all course books and as many others as possible to be acquired for Dupré and placed on reserve for us.

Libros relacionados
A brief and for now, eclectic list of Lorca criticism, relevant literary theory, and historical material.

Bonnadio, Federico. A companion to Federico García Lorca. Boydell and Brewer, 2007
In e-format on JSTOR. See an informative review.
Talens, Jenaro. El sujeto vacío. Universitat de València / Cátedra, 2000. Includes an interesting chapter on Lorca, in the framework of the constitution of the lyric “I.” Has been well reviewed and would be worth reading.
Tyler, Daniel James. Federico García Lorca’s ‘impossible’ theatre, staged. Thesis U of Birmingham (UK), 2011. Interesting discussion, worth reading.
Villanueva, Darío. Imágenes de la ciudad. Poesía y cine de Whitman a Lorca. Valladolid: Universidad de Valladolid, 2007.
Wright, Sara. The Trickster-Function in the Theatre of García Lorca. Tamesis, 2000. This book looks really smart and useful on the “impossible” or unstageable theatre, and I think it would be important to get hold of.
