Lima’s paradise landscape is represented in multiple forms in bucolic poetry by sixteenth century poet Diogo Bernardes.It has the sacredness of origins and the beauty of an idealized country retreat (locus amoenus), according to a mythical and unrecoverable golden age. However, the brightness of the themes and of the aesthetic‑literary conventions of classical matrix, that govern this bucolic mode and the idyllic representations of space, is overshadowed by the omnipresent melancholy and religious feeling, typical of a new sensibility and mannerist worldview.
