This early Renaissance poet, critic, soldier and statesman introduced the sonnet form to Spanish literature. Yet his best lyrics are inspired by folk themes and forms derived from Galician poetry (canciones, decires, serranillas and villancicos). Santillana is distinguished for his delicate grace and sentiment expressed in simple form.
