"I think of you all the time, and you know this without me having to say it, but silently, and between the lines, you should be able to read the love I feel for you, and the tenderness in my heart…” –From the last letter of Federico Garcia-Lorca to Juan Ramírez de Lucas, circa 1936

The Sonetos del amor oscuro, (Sonnets of dark or hidden love) comprise some of the most fascinating parts of the output of Federico García Lorca. One of his last works, the sonnets depict an openly gay Lorca and a year-long, tempestuous relationship with a lover, believed to be Castilian actor and political activist Juan Ramírez de Lucas. Originally withheld from publication by his heirs as part of a sanitization of his legacy, they were first published in 1983 in an unauthorized edition, followed by an authorized edition in 1984.

In 1936, Lorca received political asylum from the Mexican Government and both he and Ramirez de Lucas made plans to escape. Before he was able to escape, however, Lorca was summarily assassinated by a nationalist death squad (now known to have been operating under the direction of Generalissimo Franco) as punishment for homosexuality, his defense of the Roman Catholic Church, and his outspoken artistic output. His body has never been recovered. The Sonetos, along with El Divan de Tamarit, comprise his final written work.
