The soldier Garcilaso de la Vega was the most influential poet to introduce Italian Renaissance verse forms, poetic techniques and themes to Spain. Inspired by the metres of Petrarch, Boccaccio and Sannazzaro, Garcilaso was a consummate craftsman, who elevated the lyrical quality of Spanish verse. His works were quickly accepted as classics and largely determined the course of poetry throughout Spain’s Golden Age. The Delphi Poets Series offers readers the works of literature’s finest poets, with superior formatting. This volume presents Garcilaso’s complete works in English and Spanish, with illustrations and the usual Delphi bonus material. (Version 1)
