During the medieval period, or even still in the beginning of the 16th century, floral specimens are scarcely named in Portuguese Literature. With Luís de Camões, some flowers match the magnitude of other scenic elements.
The 16th century poet appoints a group of flowers to symbolize the passage of time, to express a mood, or as a game of seduction between the amateur and the loved “thing”. The flowers here selected serve, therefore, as an analogy or as a contrast between the external nature and the inner space, and go with the introduction of dichotomous topics, like passion and love sickness, presence and absence, consent and rejection.
