Antonio Pereira de Souza Caldas (1762–1814)

Caldas, Antonio Pereira de Souza (käl’däs pe-rā’rä de sö’zä). A Brazilian poet; born in Rio de 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), in Spanish, contain many splendid passages; the best examples being, probably, the ode on ‘Man as a Barbarian’ and ‘The Birds.’
