Quote of the Day
Carcanet has always been the place to look for considerations of purely literary and intellectual merit. Its list relies on the vision and the faith and the energy of people who care about books, and values. It is thus as rare as it is invaluable.
Frederic Raphael

Books by this author: Selected Shorter Poems
  • About
  • Luis de Góngora was born in 1561 in Córdoba. He made his reputation with two major works, the Fábula de Polifemo y Galatea and the Soledades. He was forced to move in search of patronage to Madrid, where his finances and health worsened. He suffered a stroke in 1626 and died a year later in Córdoba.
