... agudeza is often translated as “wit” or “witticism.” In the 17th c., however, it was far from mere wordplay. The verbal agudeza is the product of a keen mod. mind sharpened on social, economic, and spiritual disillusionments ( desengaños ) and saturated in a culture of perspectivism and a general rationalist distancing from earlier passions and beliefs.
