Andrés Bello (1781–1865)

Bello, Andrés. A South American poet and diplomat; born in Venezuela, in 1781; died in Chile in 1865. He lived many years in London, as the representative of various South American countries, and spent the later part of his life in Chile. His translation of Berni’s ‘Orlando Innamorato’ and his vast poem ‘America,’ only parts of which are finished, entitle him to high rank among Spanish-American men of letters.
