Luces y sombras: Boscán en las Anotaciones de Herrera

Full Text
This article examines the reception of Boscán in Herrera’s Anotaciones, paying special attention to the process of belatedness Boscán is subjected to in Herrera’s discourse on the sonnet.

The article also explores a few important aspects related to genre and intertextuality in the two sonnets in morte that Boscán wrote in memory of Garcilaso at the end of his petrarchan collection and discusses the reasons why Herrera praised these two poems in his Anotaciones ​
