Luis de Góngora y Argote

Góngora y Argote, Luis de (1561–1627), Spanish poet. One of the great figures of Spain's Golden age, he originated an ornate style in his sonnets and ballads that came to be known as Gongorism. His greatest work, Solitudes (1613), is exemplary in its use of exaggerated metaphors, allusion, and Latin-based vocabulary.
