Sort: Oldest first
A Spanish poet and miscellaneous writer; born at Navia in 1817. He is at once one of the most popular and most prolific of the peninsula's versifiers; in "Moral and Political Fables" and "Colon" his talent is most at home, although "Doloras" "Sorrows", a collection of poems in which he gives expression to the best in contemporary Spanish ideals, has attracted most attention. His stories in verse, "The Good and the Wise" and "Juana's Loves" more particularly, are deemed by many his masterpieces; but his plays-among them "Dies Irae", a drama-are not without a claim to that distinction. He has written, as well, on political and social subject's in sonorous prose. Died 1901.
