(p.191) Chapter Four Francisco Botello de Moraes
Sceptres and Sciences in the Spains
Liverpool University Press

This chapter examines epic poetry and a satirical novel of Francisco Botello de Moraes. It discusses his praise for parts of the French neoclassical programme, and the influence of Epicureanism on his understanding of nature and human nature. The chapter, which considers Botello's rejection of rationalism, the influence of Francis Bacon and Pierre Gassendi on his works, and his defence of the Visigothic past of Mediterranean Europe, also evaluates the links between French neoclassicism, Cartesianism, and the ethnicization of Mediterranean Europe.

Keywords:   Botello de Moraes, epic poetry, satirical novel, Epicureanism, nature, rationalism, Francis Bacon, Pierre Gassendi, Cartesianism, French neoclassicism
