In the Songs of Garcilaso de la Vega he relates, as if it were a brief songbook, the love process, in general, painful and heartbreaking. This predestined love provokes in the lover melancholy and pain for not being able to enjoy the beloved object. Below we comment very briefly on the content of each song.

  • Song I. A flor de Gnido. He regrets the lady’s dodge. The poet shows an attitude of submission to the domination of a tyrannical lady because she is inaccessible.
  • Song II. With a gentle noise. The poet contrasts the beauty of the place he finds himself with the pain he feels for his unrequited love.
  • Song III. The roughness of my ills I want. Written during captivity, it highlights the contrast between the description of the landscape that opens and closes the poem, and the theme of integrity of spirit. Exposed in the central stanzas, in which the complaint contained by the sorrows of exile and love dominates.
  • Song IV. Loneliness following. Its starting point is the Lucrevian equating between the sorrows of hell and the pains of human life.
  • Song V. If to the desert region uninhabitable. Written during his stay in Naples. The poet dedicates it to Violante Sanseverino, so that she accepts the love favor of Mario Galeota, his friend who suffers the disdain of the lady. This song stands out especially because with it Garcilaso created a new strophic form: the lyre.

The poetic work of Garcilaso de la Vega, composed of thirty-eight sonnets, five songs, an ode in lyres, two elegies, an epistle, three eclogues, seven Castilian couplets and three Latin odes, was published for the first time in 1543, as an appendix to the Works by Juan Boscán. The lyrical production of Garcilaso de la Vega, maximum expression of the Castilian Renaissance, became, from very early on, an inexcusable reference for Spanish poets, who since then could not ignore the metric and aesthetic revolution operated by him in the Spanish lyric.
