abstract

Poesías de Melchor Díaz de Toledo, poeta del siglo XVI hasta ahora no conocido (The Poems of Melchor Díaz de Toledo, a XVIth century poet not known until now) (Sevilla, 1776) is a collection of original compositions and translations of Graeco-Latin texts, presumably a work by an author from the end of the XVIth century. It is in fact a literary fraud created by Cándido María Trigueros, whose closest model was Francisco de la Torre’s poems, an edition by Quevedo reprinted in 1753 by Luis J. Velázquez, who included a ‘Speech’ in order to prove that Quevedo was the genuine author of such poems. Though little more than a minimally successful imitation, the work from 1776 deserves to be studied for its unique testimony as to the reception of Golden Age poetry by Spanish Enlightenment readers and authors.
