The works to be included were chosen by Almeida Garrett, who also wrote the introductory essay, "Bosquejo da historia da poesia e lingua portugueza" (I, vii-lxvii). He repudiated his connection with the anthology, however, after another editor made additions and orthographic changes. The Parnaso includes epic, descriptive and serio-comic poetry, as well as bucolic verses, sonnets, epigrams, odes, lyrics, dithyrambs, fables, elegies and drama. (For a complete list of the contents, see Innocêncio.) Volume VI was originally issued with José Agostinho de Macedo's Os Burros, which appeared on pp. 199-379. The editor later decided that it had too many obscenities to be included in such an anthology, and replaced it with Nicolau Tolentino's Satyras, which occupy pp. 199-313.*** Innocêncio VI, 339-48. Pinto de Mattos, pp. 441-2. Ramos A Edição de lingua portuguesa em França 117 & 260. Bookseller Inventory # 35644
