The "Index das Lyras" begins on p.  and continues to the end of the volume.Marília marks the transition of Portuguese and Brazilian literature from classicism to Romanticism, and in the words of Veríssimo, it "is of exceptional importance in Brazilian literature," forming "the supreme book of love, the noblest, the purest, the most deeply felt, the most beautiful which has been written in that tongue since Bernardim Ribeiro and the sonnets of Camões." According to Jong, "Gonzaga must be counted among the very best lyric poets Brazil has had. After nearly two centuries, today his melancholy lyricism is not only still alive, but extremely popular and highly esteemed by literary critics. His most famous poetic work, Marília de Dirceu, the first literary volume printed in Brazil, the most important work published by a Luso-Brazilian Arcadian, is one of the best works in all of Brazilian literature" (Four Hundred Years of Brazilian Literature, p. 80).*** Borba de Moraes (1983), I, 366; Período colonial pp. 171-2.
