The passage of Federico García Lorca in America was decisive, both in affirming his prestige and because of the specific resonances it had in his work. The trip to the Río de la Plata in 1934, he learned of a fairly long stay in Montevideo that marked his contemporaries forever and that continued to live in the memory of those who succeeded them. But, as this investigation is in charge of proving it, the presence and the controversy about the work and the person of Lorca is previous extending until the present time. Moving between the discourses of the chronicle, the biographical research and the critical essay, this research seeks to contribute unknown information about Lorca; review the genesis and strong repercussions, both in the literary and spectacular fields as well as in the ideological and even intersubjective fields, of the work and the person of the Andalusian poet in the aforementioned physical and symbolic territory. The perspective that is rehearsed here, without limiting itself to any nationalism, is proposed from a Uruguayan locus and based on the aesthetic, cultural and political problems and debates that the figure of García Lorca proposed to this space.
