Abstract

In Portuguese Neoclassicism, the moral and social satire of poets like Correia Garção cannot compete either in quality nor in quantity with the satire that operates a cruel and detailed debasement of the other through the degradation of his corporeality. Neoclassical satire of poets like Bocage or Agostinho de Macedo expands satirical horizons by updating the contradiction between the theoretical principles of moderation and poetic practice, which enables the entwinement of the artistic and informal within an erotic word-play.
