Herrera, Fernando de

 

Born 1534, in Sevilla; died there 1597. Spanish poet.

Herrera was a leading member of the Sevilla school of poetry of the High Renaissance. Under the influence of Petrarch, he wrote of love in the spirit of Neoplatonism. He was the author of such affecting odes as “Song to the Victory of Lepanto.” Herrera anticipated the development of Gongorism with Notes on the Works of Garcilaso de la Vega (1580), in which he advocated the saturation of the literary language with complex stylistic figures and images.

La anomalia mas escandalosa, no obstante, es la presunta dedicatoria del autor al Duque de Bejar: no una pieza original, sino zurcida, linea a linea, con hilvanes de los prefacios a las Obras de Garcilaso de la Vega con anotaciones (1580) de Fernando de Herrera. ?Es concebible que a Cervantes le faltara aliento para componer una dedicatoria, solita o insolita, en serio, en broma o como le diera la real gana?
