Garcilaso's poetic production is relatively brief and his great poetic contribution is the works composed in the Italianate style. Along with his sonnets, the most notable of his writing are eclogues and pastoral poetry, with influences from Virgilio and Sannazaro. The harmony of Garcilaso's poetry, in which we find no warlike resonances -despite his status as a military man and a man of arms- or religious, together with its rhythm and beauty, make it one of the great artistic creations of all time. , and today it retains all its validity.


About the Author

Garcilaso de la Vega was the courtier and soldier of Carlos V,  and managed to introduce the forms and spirit of the Renaissance into Spanish poetry, with a work of great beauty and delicate musicality, which was the expression of a tormented and pathetic sensuality, with continuous references to impossible love - either for going against social norms, or for the death of the beloved to ensue. A pain of love that comes to constitute man's own identity and that is solved, in his last pastoral poetry, in a true sublimation Neoplatonic style, in a hedonistic enjoyment of landscape, music and art.
