Andrew W. Mellon Distinguished Service Professor in the Humanities, Spanish Literature,

and Comparative Literature; Hispanic & Luso-Brazilian Graduate Adviser. Program(s):

Frederick A. de Armas focuses on the literature of the Spanish Golden Age (Cervantes,
Calderón, Claramonte, Lope de Vega), often from a comparative perspective. His interests
include the politics of astrology; magic and the Hermetic tradition; ekphrasis; the relations
between the verbal and the visual particularly between Spanish literature and Italian art; and
the interconnections between myth and empire during the rule of the Habsburgs.

His books and edited collections include: The Invisible Mistress: Aspects of Feminism
and Fantasy in the Golden Age; The Return of Astraea: An Astral-Imperial
Myth in Calderón; The Prince in the Tower: Perceptions of "La vida es sueño";
Heavenly Bodies: The Realms of "La Estrella de Sevilla"; A Star-Crossed Golden
Age: Myth and the Spanish Comedia; Cervantes, Raphael and the Classics;
European Literary Careers: The Author from Antiquity to the Renaissance;
Writing for the Eyes in the Spanish Golden Age (2004); Ekphrasis in the Age of
Cervantes (2005) and Quixotic Frescoes: Cervantes and Italian Renaissance Art
(2006). The University of Toronto Press has recently published his Ovid in the Age of
Cervantes (2010) and Don Quixote Among the Saracens: A Clash of Civilizations
and Literary Genres (2011). His edition of Cervantes´ La fuerza de la sangre has
appeared in Clasicos Hispánicos; and a forthcoming book, La astrología en el teatro
clásico espanol en su contexto europeo will be published in Spain this academic year.
