Sort: Oldest first
A Spanish poet; born in Bermeo, Aug. 7, 1533; died 1595. He served against the Araucanian natives of Chili, and wrote a historico-epical poem, "The Araucanian Woman", in 37 cantos, which apart from a few episodes is a faithful narrative of what he saw. In its portraiture of character it is admirable, and in its literary form it is classical. Cervantes in "Don Quixote" ranks it with the finest of the Italian epics.
