This project examines the role of al-Andalus (i.e. Muslim Spain) in the work of the Spanish poet Federico García Lorca and the Palestinian poet Mahmoud Darwish. Al-Andalus has evolved into an image of a "lost garden," which symbolizes an idealized society of intellectual achievement and cultural hybridity, as well as a historical moment of loss and exile. This image takes new form in the poetry of Lorca and Darwish, who employ it in their own attempts to incorporate voices of cultural Others within the mythic space of the poem.
