An in-depth examination of the cultural functions of the pastoral in Spain, this study of Montemayor's La Diana and Cervantes's pastoral texts moves away from studies that consider this literature as purely escapist and imitative. Rosilie Hernández-Pecoraro considerably expands the discussion of the importance of the pastoral genre to early modern Spanish studies and supplements the ways in which Hispanists have conventionally considered these texts.
