So BFF has this entry - http://www.beaconforfreedom.org/search/censored_publications/publication.html?id.... I googled it to find out publication date and category since he has plays, poetry, etc. and found this - http://www.glbtq.com/literature/garcialorca_f.html (scroll down to openly homosexual works) which says aside from a couple of scenes, it wasn't published until 1978 which makes it several years after Franco died and the banning of Lorca's works officially ended.

Should it be included? Seems as though someone at BFF might have just linked a bunch of Lorca works without paying attention to that detail (all of the entries are identical aside from the title of the work).

I don't think it is a case of not being published because of the ban as it was a) regularly flouted in Spain and b) wouldn't have affected publication elsewhere. So my vote is to not include it as I think it is an error on BFF's part. How do y'all feel?

FYI, entered the Bible, Quo'ran and Talmud as new entries (and the amazing LT managed to link them up so they are in fact shared) as I don't think it is appropriate to have them linked to a particular version, translation, edition, etc. When specific versions (ala Spain's banning of the Bible in Spanish) are banned, that can be explained in the comments.

I'm loath to second-guess the lists. I would put a comment in the field explaining the facts. I would also consider writing to the BFF folks & asking if there are any particulars about this book.
