Luiz Augusto Palmeirim (1825–1893)

Palmeirim, Luiz Augusto (päl-mī’rēm). A Portuguese poet; born at Lisbon, Aug. 9, 1825; died there, Dec. 4, 1893. His first collection of lyric verse, ‘Poesies’ (1851), reached a fifth edition in his lifetime, and won for him the title “the Béranger of Portugal.” Among his patriotic poems, ‘Exiled’ is the one best known. His lyrics have been published as ‘Popular Songs.’ He wrote also some comedies in verse; a ‘Gallery of Portuguese Portraits’ (1878); and ‘The Eccentrics of my Time’ (1891).
