Sort: Oldest first
A notable Argentine poet; born in Buenos Ayres, 1809; died in Montevideo, 1851. He published a book of "Rhymes" at 19; passed some time in France, became a devotee of Byron and Lamartine, and on his return published another volume whose exuberance explains its failure. But later volumes of short poems- "Counsels"; "The Female Captives"; "Guitar"- prove him a genuine poet.
