Esteban Echeverría (1805–1851)

Echeverría, Esteban (ā-chā-vār-ē’ä). A notable Argentine poet; born in Buenos Aires, 1805; died in Montevideo, 1851. He published a book of ‘Rhymes’ at 19; passed some time in France, became a devotee of Byron and Lamartine, and on his return published another volume whose exuberance explains its failure. But later volumes of short poems—‘Counsels,’ ‘The Female Captives,’ ‘Guitar’—prove him a genuine poet.
