Duende is pre-verbal. I understand why Lorca called it a struggle, his wrestling with duende. Because it’s this wild, animalistic thing that does not escape, it fierces its way out of the body, the body must make way,. must be the channel, and the guitar tries lamely to give structure, to net the voice, the blood energy of the duende, to make it into something manageable. Words - the naming - are the poet's guitar.
