Overview

Recognising the need for a convenient edition of Góngora for English readers and students, Dr J. W. Barker has here prepared a selection which, in addition to showing Góngora's versatility and proneness to experiment in verse forms, makes available a number of poems to be read with delight for their music, beauty, and simple yet artificial charm. The poems are dated and chronologically arranged to enable the critical reader to assess the worth of Góngora's poetry, and to judge independently the emergence and development of the style called gongorismo. This collection was first published in 1942.
