Other Literary Forms

(Critical Edition of Dramatic Literature)

In addition to two comedies and one tragedy, António Ferreira wrote and published in various poetic forms—sonnets, odes, eclogues, epigrams, and epitaphs—as well as writing letters and a history. In most of these works, Ferreira shows the great influence that Greek, Latin, and Renaissance Italian authors had on him, especially Horace, Vergil, and Petrarch.
