    schema:description "In Spain as elsewhere, Renaissance poets transformed the lyric tradition by using Petrarch as a source of poetic renewal, consistently reappropriating his work. But political unity and military hegemony, coupled with a sense of cultural inferiority and an obsession with ethnic purity, made Spain different. During a 150-year period from Encina's Cancionero (1496) to Quevedo's Parnassa espanol (1648), lyric poetry in Spain became the arena for a cultural struggle reflected in their conflicting preoccupations with imitating Petrarch on the one hand and surpassing the Italians on the other."@en ;
    schema:description "This book examines the poets most self-conscious about the incongruity between their role as imitators of Petrarch and their desire for national and personal priority. It focuses on intertextual readings of poems by Juan Boscan, Garcilaso de Ia Vega, Fernando de Herrera, Luis de Gongora, and Francisco de Quevedo, readings often substantiated through the use of contemporary commentaries. The book also deals with the allusive polemics in prefaces, translations, and commentaries over issues such as linguistic freedom, the roles of sound pattern and imagery, the centrality of metaphor, the relation of lyric to epic, and the translatability of poetry. Both poetry and theory are contextualized by consideration of the specific social situation of the writers involved."@en ;

    schema:description "Drawing on critics ranging from Bakhtin and Curtius to Harold Bloom and Maria Corti, Orphans of Petrarch offers extended discussions of these major poets, and a net exposition of the development of Spanish Renaissance poetics, from the point of view of modern critical theory. Contributing to the discussion about imitation and belatedness, and grounded in both philology and cultural theory, it is the first book to integrate the "Spanish difference" into an understanding of Renaissance lyric as a European phenomenon."@en ;
