  Jorge de Montemayor - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Shortly afterwards Montemayor was killed in Piedmont, apparently in a love affair; a late edition of the Diana gives the exact date of his death.
The Diana is generally stated to have been printed at Valencia in 1542; but, as the Canto de Orfeo refers to the widowhood of the Infanta Juana in 1554, the book must be of later date.
Though Portuguese was Montemayor's native language, he only used it for two songs and a short prose passage in the sixth book of the Diana.

 Jorge Manrique - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jorge Manrique (ca1440 – 1479) was a Spanish poet who actively participated in the conflicts of the era of Enrique IV and Isabel I of Castile on the side of Isabel, but died in a battle at the castle of Garcimuñoz in 1479 after Isabel gained the crown.
Manrique was a great-nephew of Iñigo López de Mendoza (marquess of Santillana), a descendant of Pero López de Ayala, chancellor of Castile, and a nephew of Gómez Manrique, corregidor of Toledo, all important poets of the late fourteenth and fifteenth centuries.
He was, therefore, a member of a very important noble family that was related to the house of Trastámara and known as much for his military prowess as he was for his poetry.

 Jorge De Montemayor
One by Alonzo Perez, a physician of Salamanca, who claimed that Montemayor had entrusted to him his plans for finishing the work, appeared in 1564 and was a failure.
The "Diana" enjoyed great popularity and led to many imitations by famous authors, notably "La Arcadia" of Lope de Vega, and "La Galatea" of Cervantes, and it is said that Shakespeare based his "Two Gentlemen of Verona" upon an episode in "La Diana".
Montemayor has also left a number of lyric poems, published in 1554 under the title of "Cancionero", and reprinted in 1562, 1572, and 1588.

The Portuguese Bernardim Ribeiro’s pastoral novel Menina e Moça [the book of the young girl] (1554) was certainly the inspiration in part for the Spanish Jorge de Montemayor’s Diana (1559), one of the most important novels in Spanish literature.
João B. de Almeida Garrett, the chief exponent of French-inspired romanticism, exercised great influence over a generation of poets, playwrights, and novelists.
Important contemporary novelists include José Cardosa-Piresa, Olga Gonçalves, Lídia Jorge, António Lobo Antunes, and José Saramago, who is internationally recognized as one of the great modern writers of fiction (he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1998).

 Cervantes and Libros de entendimiento, by Mary Lee Cozad
Libros de entendimiento in the sense of “books of intellect,” then, might reflect Cervantes' ongoing interest in the relationship between the intellect and the imagination (libros de caballerías being imaginative but not intellectual works) and his sixteenth-century conviction that “intellect and imagination belong to different realms” (El Saffar 1986: 83).
For Fernando de Herrera literary inspiration was the product of imagination regulated by the entendimiento (reminiscent of Tasso's fantasia intellettuale, which, as we have said, was a higher sort of imagination based on entendimiento), and the entendimiento the abode of Platonic forms.
Beneficio de tercero, provecho de tercero and perjuicio de tercero were apparently commonly-used quasi-legal expressions in sixteenth-century Spain.

 The Absence of the Absence of Women. Rosilie Hernández-Pecorado
In Jorge de Montemayor's Los siete libros de la Diana, Diana and her female companions are, as Mujica puts it, “goddess-like”, women who represent the model of virginity and extreme beauty that their male counterparts desire (219).
Clearly, the “artificioso rodeo de palabras” is a direct reference to the high poetic practice that served as the most important activity of the male subject in the pastoral tradition and which Don Quixote wishes to replace in his Golden Age speech by “verdad y llaneza” (156; vol.
Although “muerte de amor” is a convention of the genre, its effective occurrence threatens to deplete the male community and introduces self-violence that does not fit in the idealized and eternal springtime of the locus amoenus.

 [minstrels] The Passionate Shepherd to His Love -- Christopher Marlowe
During the 16th and 17th centuries, too, pastoral romance novels (by Jacopo Sannazzaro, Jorge de Montemayor, Miguel de Cervantes, and Honoré d'Urfé) appeared, as did in the 15th and 16th centuries the pastoral drama (by Torquato Tasso and Battista Guarini).
The "modern" pastoral, deriving from Bernard de Fontenelle, dwelled on the innocence of the contemporary rustic (though not on his miseries).
In England the controversy was reflected in a quarrel between Alexander Pope and Ambrose Philips, though the liveliest pastorals of the period were by John Gay, whose mode was burlesque (and whose Beggar's Opera is ironically subtitled "A Newgate Pastoral"--Newgate being one of London's prisons).

The lady celebrated in the love Iyrics is said to have been a fair gentlewoman of Valencia, Teresa Bou (or Monboy), whom March met for the first time — even as Petrarch had met his Laura — in church on a Good Friday.
In the sixteenth century his Iyrics were translated twice into Castilian first by Baltasar de Romani (printed in 1539, four years before the first edition of the original Catalan text), and again by Jorge de Montemayor.
His influence is clear in a number of the leading poets writing in Spanish in the same century, such as Boscan, Garcilaso de la Vega, and Mendoza.

 Empire in a small space: Spanish pastoral in its imperial context (Jacopo Sannazaro, Garcilaso de la Vega, Jorge de ...
This aspect of the pastoral, introduced in antiquity by Theocritus and Vergil, gained greater importance in Renaissance pastoral with the Arcadia of Jacopo Sannazaro, where the depiction of shepherds in an idealized Arcadian landscape was combined with the journey of the protagonist from Naples to Arcadia and back again.
This combination of repose in an idealized landscape and travel to other lands was transmitted to Spain by the pastoral Garcilaso de la Vega, and then moved to the pastoral novels, such as Jorge de Montemayor's Diana and Gaspar Gil Polo's Diana enamorada.
This interplay of repose and travel was appropriated by Spanish pastoral, it played a dual function: to construct Spain as a kind of locus amoenus, while at the same time gesturing toward and criticizing an expanding empire.
