Abstract Between the sixteenth and seventeenth century, the first Spanish general poetic treatises also meant the appearance of an enormous doctrinal corpus of diverse types and formats of texts. Although they were not conceived as normal poetic treatises, some of these texts were interested about the most heated literary reflections and controversies at the moment, to a greater or lesser extent, collaborating in the configuration of the modern Spanish literary theory. These texts ended up being true doctrinal harangues that created authentic intellectual networks. This is the case of the Discurso en alabanza de la poesia, aplicandola al nacimiento, written approximately towards 1591 by Gaspar Aguilar, one of the founders of the Academia de Nocturnos in Valencia.
