This chapter focuses on the period after Francisco Nunez de Pineda y Bascunan left his Chilean patria for the final time, during which the Augustinian friar Jose de Santa Rita Durao published, in Lisbon, an epic poem about the history of his distant Brazilian homeland. Like Durao, Garcilaso had enjoyed both a personal and an editorial relationship with Lisbon. The Portuguese capital was not only the place of publication of two of his books but also the city that, as he claims in the dedication of La Florida del Inca, welcomed him as a “native son” when he first disembarked on European soil. Durao himself would arrive in the capital of the Portuguese Empire in 1731, having left his American patria to receive an education, a practice common among Brazilian elites throughout the colonial period.
