Chapter Summary

Golden Age academies are considered to be one of the most interesting literary phenomena of sixteenth- and seventeenth-century Spain. In sixteenth- and seventeenth-century Spain, vejamen designated a festive satire on somebody's physical and moral peculiarities. In three different academic meetings held in the city of Granada (1664, 1681 and 1684), the structure of the vejamen is quite different, however: the secretary, after reading his opening discourse, pronounced the mockery of a given academician, who had to recite a poem and mock a second academician, and so on. The southern town of Granada is one of those Spanish cities which hosted Golden Age literary circles. This chapter compares, Pedro de Granada's academy with the academy or learned society of the early 1660s whose existence is attested in the four books printed between 1661 and 1664. It contains an appendix: Table of regular attendants in academic meetings of the early 1660s (Granada).
