José Iglesias de la Casa (1748–1791)

Iglesias de la Casa, José (ē-glā’sē-äs dā lä kä’sä). A Spanish poet; born in Salamanca, Oct. 31, 1748; died there, Aug. 26, 1791. He was a priest in his native diocese, and in conjunction with Melendez, organized a band of poetasters, under the name of the School of Salamanca, exercising in time no ordinary authority over Spanish poetry. His volume of ‘Light Verse’ has, under various titles, passed through numerous editions in Spain.
