Current Research
Professor Mesa is currently working on the role of emblem literature in relation to the development of early modern fiction from Mateo Alemán's Guzmán de Alfarache (1599) to Baltasar Gracián's El Criticón (1650). This study will encompass a period of fifty years marked by the publication of the most influential books of fiction from the Spanish Golden Age, including Cervantes Don Quijote in 1605.
