Reevaluates Spain's first pastoral narrative, Jorge de Montemayor's (1520-61) Diana, by removing it from the classical and humanist framework in which it is usually studied, and placing it within the larger spiritual context of 16th-century Spain. Rhodes (Spanish literature, Boston College), by seeing the poem as an outgrowth of Montemayor's religious writing, addresses several unresolved issues, such as its immense popularity at the time.
