The mostly clandestine nature of Morisco literature both in Spanish and Aljamiado has prompted critics to inquire to what extent and how it was influenced by the canonical literature of the Golden Age. Indeed, there are many interesting examples of how the literary trends of the times influenced the Moriscos. The question of whether Morisco literature influenced the more canonical tradition, on the other hand, is especially interesting if one considers a work such as Agonía del tránsito de la muerte (1537) by the Toledan Alejo de Venegas (1498/99-1562) as a Morisco text. Álvaro Galmés de Fuentes proposed just such a reading, but I argue that the evidence does not fully support his hypothesis, which must be revised along the lines I propose.
