Gaspar Gil Polo (1516?–1591?)

Polo, Gaspar Gil (Hēl po’lo). A Spanish poet; born in Valencia about 1516; died at Barcelona in 1591?. He was a successful lawyer, but his principal fame arises from his poems,—one of them, ‘Diana Enamored,’ being a gem of Spanish literature. It is a continuation of Montemayor’s ‘Diana,’ but excels that production in beauty of style and metre, and in the number and variety of its episodes.
