The Catalan writer Josep Carner (1884-1970), was one of the most emblematic figure of the modernist literary Catalan. His literary and poetic essays were grammaticaly perfect and his style was close to a style Petrarchism.
He also wrote three works for theatre one of which, El Giravolt de Maig, was adapted for the opera of Toldrà. Some poems were put in music by Mompou and Rodrigo.
Miquel Ortega has worked about literary texts by Lorca in other occasions. The musical adaptations in Bestiari are fresh and descriptive contributing to the contrasting nature of different animals.
