He served as Poet Laureate to Queen Elizabeth II, and in the year before his death he was awarded the Whitbread Book of the Year Prize (for Tales from Ovid) and the Forward Prize (for Birthday Letters), and received an Order of Merit.

Reviews - What do customers think about Poem of the Deep Song?

Evokes passion, vibrancy, and life  Apr 14, 2007
Poem of the Deep Song is a bilingual edition of the epic poem inspired by the music and culture of Andalusian Gypsies, penned by acclaimed Spanish artist and musician Federico Garcia Lorca (1898-1936) and skillfully translated into English by award-winning poet Ralph Angel. Consisting of a diversity of impressions originally meant to be sung, not with overly mellifluous tone but rather in a deep, primal cry, Poem of the Deep Song evokes passion, vibrancy, and life undimmed by the turn of almost a century. "De Profundis": A hundred lovers / sleep forever / beneath this dry land. / Andalusia, / long, red-colored roads. / Cordoba, green olive trees, / where a hundred crosses / are placed in their memory. / A hundred lovers / sleep forever.
An important new translation of Lorca's Poem of the Deep Song  Dec 22, 2006
These translations capture the music and, dare I say, the duende of Poem of the Deep Song like no other translation. These poems are wonderful because Ralph Angel's ear and attention are superb. This will be the definitive English translations of one of Lorca's masterpiece.
