El mito de Venus y Adonis bajo el prisma deformador de Castillo Solórzano
This article deals with the processes that Castillo Solórzano uses to write serious mythological fables (of Ovidian origin) within the parameters of the aesthetics of the grotesque and deformed, essential ingredients of satirical and burlesque literature. These processes are related to the classic imitatio and the structural disposition of the text, and also related to formal twist, « agudeza verbal » in the words of Gracián, which allow parodying the rococo style of Góngora influence. For a better expository clarity they are exemplified with the Fábula de Adonis, which Castillo Solórzano takes directly from Ovid, and which serves for other similar works of burlesque romances in the seventeenth century.
