Vasco Mousinho de Quevedo Castelo Branco was a 16th century Portuguese poet whose work is only just beginning to receive the attention it deserves, after more than three centuries of neglect by scholars of Portuguese literature. Almost a third of his work is in Castilian. The seven sonnets studied in this article are part of his Spanish opus. They are taken from his first published collection: Discurso Sobre a Vida e Morte de Santa Isabel, Rainha de Portugal, e Outras Várias Rimas (Lisbon: Manuel de Lira, 1596). Though one should certainly take into account underlying political reasons, this article aims to understand why he uses Castilian in certain sonnets; ultimately, I argue the decisive factor to be poetic artifice rather than a political commitment.
