Quevedo, who for much of his life was a nobleman politically active at court, is now remembered as one of the great writers of the Baroque era. His love poems are among the best regarded from his substantial poetic oeuvre, but he ranges also over metaphysics, mythology and satire, and there are frequent references or allusions to his deep reading from numerous languages.
