One of its fundamental characteristics is the dense network of references condensed in each of his words. But they reflect most of all an abundant number of very real lectures, an eager desire for information and communication, and a notable — and so very Jesuit — capacity for being au courant of the events and changes of the age. And, on top of all that, he speaks to us in a very high standard of prose, capable of the most refined agudeza, where the will towards style defines also a complex moral attitude. These texts can be regarded the keystone of Spanish Baroque literature, and perhaps this is why they possess, as Aurora Egido says, "a constant exercise of what is today called intertextuality, both thematic, conceptual and stylistic, very much in harmony with the practices inherited from the age of Humanism".
