Federico Garcia Lorca’s (1898-1936) powerful and experimental colour-work is a critically undernourished aspect of his craft, particularly in terms of colour’s psychological, bodily and material agency. Breaking away from scholarly preoccupations with Lorca’s sexuality, with the division of his work along temporal and stylistic lines, and with colour symbolism, Jade Boyd’s readings of Lorca’s ten full-length completed plays (1920-1936) examine how his colour-work forms part of a sustained experimentation with his visceral and intersensory ‘theatre of poetry’. Drawing on theoretical engagement with colour, in the visual arts, in material culture, in literary criticism and in cultural studies, her study opens up mutually beneficial perspectives on colour for readers across Colour Studies, Modern Language Studies, Theatre Studies, and Medical Humanities.

Jade Boyd is a graduate of the University of Bristol and works at Oxford University Press.
