A Portuguese poet; born of a slave mother at Rio Janeiro, March 11, 1846; died at Lisbon, June 11, 1883. He graduated in jurisprudence at the Coimbra University, but devoted himself almost exclusively to the Muses at Lisbon. He published only two small volumes: "Miniatures" (1870); "Nocturns" (1882). In collaboration with his wife Maria Amalia Vaz de Carvalho, herself a notable writer, he is author of "Stories for our Children" (1882). His poems show high sensibility and great power of poetic form and expression.
