As in the case of many other formations in the modern period, the Coimbra group also has structural affinities with what historians often describe as the "avant-garde"; that is, an affiliation of roughly like-minded writers who publish in the same venues, who attack tradition, who dissolve the distinction between artistic and political discourse, and who eventually express themselves through manifestos and political action.
The adverbial phrase alludes to still another "deficiency" of the Coimbra group, which according to Casrilho and his circle's earlier views had regularly employed nebulous philosophical abstractions in place of classically forthright language.
Castilho juxtaposes this pastoral vision of an artistic community with the less convivial Coimbra group or "todos esses fabricantes de mundos imaginarios e exclusivos ...
Castilho proffers the classics as the antidote to the confusion and vagaries practiced by the Coimbra group, and he offers the precepts of clarity, truth, moderation, and patience in support of Pinheiro Chagas for the chairship and against figures such as Braga and Quental, whose works leave him totally perplexed: "Deixando de parte, por agora, Braga e Quental, de quem, pelas alturas em que voam, confesso, humilde e envergonhado, que muito pouco enxergo, nem atino para onde vao, nem avento o que sera deles afinal ..." (I, 42) [Leaving aside for the moment Braga and Quental, whose flights, I confess humbly and ashamedly, I am able to understand very little of, for neither can I guess where they are going, nor do I sense what will finally become of them].
The Coimbra group took advantage of this greater accessibility and contact and were becoming increasingly engaged by the writings of Hegel, Comte, Michelet, Proudhon, Renan and Talhe.
Three days later, Pinheiro Chagas, the conservative poet whose volume had originated the attacks on the Coimbra group and who had now become a government minister, wrote in defense of the government's position.
