José Antonio Maitín (1804–1874)

Maitín, José Antonio (mä-ē’tēn). A Venezuelan poet; born in Porto Cabello, about 1804; died in Choroni, 1874. In 1824 he returned from Havana to his own country from which he had fled on account of persecution, and subsequently lived in the valley of Choroni. In 1844 he made a collection of his best poems and published them under the title ‘Echoes from Choroni,’ and in 1851 a collected edition of all his works.
