Juan de Jáuregui y Aguilar (1583–1641)

Jáuregui y Aguilar, Juan de (hou’rā-gē ē ä’gē-lär). A Spanish poet, born in Seville, about 1583; died at Madrid, Jan. 10?, 1641. His name became universally known in Spain upon the appearance of his charming translation of Tasso’s ‘Aminta.’ He wrote ‘Orpheus,’ a long mediocre poem, and a ‘Poetic Discourse’ against the poet Gongora, besides rendering Lucan’s ‘Pharsalia’ into Spanish.
