Verse novel in Spain in the Modern Age

The novel in verse has had little success in modern times in the Hispanic area. Perhaps for this reason, critics have not given much attention to this particular narrative genre. This monographic issue seeks to fill this gap by focusing with interest on two of the great representatives of this literary form in Spain (the licenciado Tamariz and Salas Barbadillo, corresponding to two very different moments in the evolution of the genre) and on the narrative incursions of Cristóbal de Virués in his famous epic poem, El Monserrate (1587), which shares a strophic form with some of the contributions of the other two authors analyzed in this issue.
