A Brazilian poet; born in Rio Janeiro, Nov. 23, 1762; died there, March 2, 1814. He spent the greater part of his life in Portugal, France, and Rome, where he took orders, and returned to Brazil in 1808. His "Poems, Sacred and Profane" (1821; new ed. 1836), in Spanish, contain many splendid passages; the best examples being, probably, the ode on "Man as a Barbarian" and "The Birds".
