Ramón de Campoamor (1817–1901)

Campoamor y Campoosorio, Don Ramon de (käm”pō-ä-mōr” ē käm-pō-sō’rē-ō). A Spanish poet and miscellaneous writer; born at Navia in 1817; died in 1901. He was a prolific versifier, writing: ‘Moral and Political Fables,’ ‘Colon,’ ‘Dolores’ (Sorrows), a collection of poems. His stories in verse, ‘The Good and the Wise’ and ‘Juana’s Loves’ more particularly, and his plays—among them ‘Dies Iræ,’—are not without a claim to distinction. He wrote on political and social subjects in prose.
