Sort: Oldest first
A Spanish writer (1801-67). He was professor of poetry and rhetoric at Granada, 1822-30; but resigned and went to Madrid. There he collected a vast library of old Spanish literature, especially of ballads, whether MS. or in print: the collection is in the national library at Madrid. He wrote a volume of "Poems" (1833); a novel, "Christians and Moriscos" (1838); and a very valuable study of "The Literature of the Moriscos". He also wrote "The Conquest and the Loss of Portugal", and a charming volume of "Andalusian Scenes".
