Abstract

This article examines the occasional verse of the little-known Spanish writer Catalina Clara Ramírez de Guzmán (1618-c.1684). Straddling the public and private spheres, the large group of poems marking occasions ranging from official festivities and encomiastic celebrations of aristocrats to occurrences much closer to home constitute interesting examples of the social and familial use of verse in the seventeenth century. Partly literary and partly referential, they tell us a considerable amount about the author herself and, unlike much verse of this type, provide a clear connection with the real, everyday world.
