Most Helpful Customer Reviews

2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Elias Rivers on June 4, 2009
Format: Hardcover
This book marks the discovery, by an international comparatist, of the early arrival in Spain of Renaissance vernacular poetry. Focused on a single sonnet, it shows how Garcilaso de la Vega combines imperialism and the sufferings of love.
