Abstract: 

English translation of a letter by Federico García Lorca to his parents on account of the premiere of the play Yerma, which aroused both public enthusiasm and controversy. In the letter Lorca mentions the actress Margarita Xirgu and alludes to the sociopolitical situation in Spain, including Catalonian separatism. The translator offers, apart from the original manuscript, two images of interest: a key scene from Yerma and a portrait of the poet.
