Alonso del Castillo Solórzano (1584–1648?)

Castillo Solorzano, Alonso del (käs-tēl’yō-sō-lōr-thä’nō). A Spanish romancer and poet of the seventeenth century. His stories, ‘The Garrulous Humbug,’ ‘The Allurement of Money,’ and others, are still popular and are still reprinted. Of his comedies the most notable is ‘The Marquis of Cigarral.’ His fables after the manner of Ovid would not be deemed unworthy of the Roman poet.
