Topics included in this monograph are the classical predecessors to the Polifemo, Carrillo's "Fábula de Acis y Galatea", and Góngora's unique contribution, the Acis-Galatea interlude. The author brilliantly shows how Góngora created an alternate plot of images, contrasts, and tensions in the Polifemo, a major work which was profoundly related to his life and the period in which he lived. "The comparative aspect of Lehrer's study is...a valuable addition to the criticism of this most important poem."-Ted E. McVay, Jr., Hispania.
