Overview

This is the first comprehensive study in English of one of the most important bodies of verse in European literature. Seventeenth-century Spanish poetry represents the culmination of a rich Renaissance tradition, and Professor Terry sets out to make this accessible not only to Hispanists but also to readers of English, French and Italian poetry, with which it had many points of contact. He deals both with the major poets of the period and with their numerous lesser-known contemporaries, paying close attention to individual poems, and providing English translations for all quotations. The book also raises important general issues in the light of recent criticism.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"...demonstrates an impressive grasp of a key moment in literary history....the study is intelligent, richly textured, and engaging..." Calíope

"The book succeeds admirably in narrating the literary history of Spanish poetry during its most exceptional period; put simply, no other study today covers the subject matter quite so eloquently nor so thoroughly....As a brilliant exponent of the best of British criticism, Terry's book should be required reading for all students of the period." Anne J. Cruz, Renaissance Quarterly
