"The War Trumpet: Iberian Epic Poetry, 1543–1639 addresses a range of pressing issues key to understanding early modernity in the realms of Spain and Portugal, the first maritime empires. Specific objectives animating this collection include the following. 
First, to examine the transformation of epic topoi in the works of poets like Jerónimo Corte-Real who wrote outstanding epic poems in Portuguese and Spanish, and sought patronage, respectively, from King Sebastião of Portugal and King Philip II of Spain.
Second, to feature essays that elucidate long-standing interpretative conundrums present in canonical works such as Luis de Camões’s Os Lusíadas (1572) and Alonso de Ercilla’s La Araucana (1569, 1578, 1589). 
And third, to draw critical attention to long-neglected poems such as Luis Zapata de Chaves’s Carlo famoso (1566), Juan de Castellanos’s Elegías de varones ilustres de Indias (1589), and Bernardo de Balbuena’s El Bernardo, o victoria de Roncesvalles (1624). 

In its entirety, this collection fosters greater appreciation of the intersection between poetry, war, and exploration, and encourages more critical understanding of the transformative changes that took place on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic, the Pacific, and the Indian Oceans during the period of Iberian expansion.

The War Trumpet expands understanding of epic poetry by posing questions seldom previously raised in relation to these poems, particularly those concerned with early modern understandings of the natural world, the discipline of cartography, the practice of poetic imitation, or the reception of Petrarchism in the newly established viceroyalties of the New World. 

In addition, this collection, whose essays are authored by emerging and leading scholars, addresses topics as diverse as material culture, the ethical implications of violence in warfare, and the politico-theological underpinnings of Spain’s incorporation, in 1580, of the Kingdom of Portugal and its overseas territories. Since the production of epic and heroic poetry in the domains of Spain and Portugal was versatile, enduring, and widespread, the authors featured in this collection do not abide by a single methodology; instead, they pursue innovative theoretical frameworks designed to illuminate the pivotal role of epic poetry in the cultural, political, and social milieux of Spain and Portugal."
