This thesis explores the representation of narcissism, genius and violence in the poetic and narrative works of Salvador Dalí and Federico García Lorca. It draws on historicising and psychoanalytic theoretical frameworks. The variety of the topics leads to a heterogeneous yet interdependent academic discourse, and questions ideas and concepts that have normally been taken for granted when studying these works. In particular, this thesis focuses on poetic pieces that have been practically neglected by the critics, and it also offers a new reading of a number of poems from Poeta en Nueva York by Lorca. Generally, it tackles the complexity of the identity, the creativity processes and the aggression in modern times, as well as their aesthetic influence on both artists’ work. This study proves that an original approach is still possible when referring to Dalí and Lorca.
