The 1580 edition of Fernando de Herrera’s Anotaciones a Garcilaso marked the entrance of a new protagonist in the literary landscape of Golden Age poetry. Contrasting the notions of “academies” and “spaces of knowledge”, this article focuses on how Herrera and the group of Sevillian literati who collaborated on the project took advantage of this publication to make a name for themselves within the Spanish republic of letters. Their efforts are examined through the different strategies for authority elaborated in the book’s paratextual material, as well as the various critical responses and reactions to the Anotaciones.
