What these men did there, and how Balboa rose to further prominence, his great exploits, and finally how unkind Fate also overtook him, will form the subject of the next paper. At least, the assertion is gravely made by the ancient chroniclers. I wonder what kind of an outfielder he would have made today. From the Spanish word "bachiller," referring to an inferior degree in the legal profession.

A little of what was written by the Argensolas, more of Herrera, and nearly the whole of the Bachiller de la Torre and Luis de Leon, with occasional efforts of Lope de Vega and Quevedo, and single odes of other writers, make up what gives its character to the graver and less popular portion of Spanish lyric poetry.
