Dr. Lorenzo is a native of La Coruña, but he grew up in Madrid. He taught at Southern Utah University and came to ECU in 2002. He specializes in Spanish Renaissance literature and has published articles on intertextuality and self-representation in the poetry of Garcilaso de la Vega and Juan Boscan. He is currently working on a monographic study of Boscan and on the impact of courtly discourse on different aspects of Golden Age prose. He is also attempting to perfect the art of the "empanada" and saying his daily prayers to make Atlético de Madrid the winner of the Spanish soccer championship.
