Garcilaso: A New Amorous Biography URL: http://www.march.es/conferencias/anteriores/voz.aspx?p1=100117&l=2

Garcilaso de la Vega’s love life seemed to be very well known and, in general, no-one was concerned about reexploring his steps on earth. However, the discovery of an important childhood sweetheart some years ago led to the conclusion that very little was actually known about him. The vast network of Spanish archives was waiting for someone to open many of its dusty pages and gradually get to the bottom of the Toledan’s passionate experiences in regard to his love life. And it was in this way that, file after file, the women who filled his life and gave rise to his verses appeared. After Guiomar Carrillo, Beatriz de Sá, his impossible Portuguese love returned, and, finally, after much investigation and fitting together the pieces of his biography, Camila, the shepherdess who was related to him and hidden to all, eventually emerged. Now the puzzle is complete and none of the fundamental pieces are missing, Garcilaso’s amorous biography is offered to us with all of its emotion and immortality.
