Pedro António Correia Garção (1724–1772)

Garção, Pedro António Correia (gär-sä‘). A Portuguese poet; born in Lisbon, April 29, 1724; died there, Nov. 10, 1772. As a lyric poet he stands very high; while his satires, odes, and epistles—upon the models of Horace—are dainty and spiritual. He also wrote successful dramas. The ‘Hymn to Dido’ is one of his most popular productions.
