Álvares de Azevedo Biography »
Manuel Antônio Álvares de Azevedo (September 12, 1831 – April 25, 1852) was a Brazilian Romantic poet, short story writer, playwright and essayist. Adept of what was called in Brazil "Ultra-Romanticism", his work is heavily influenced by Lord Byron, Alfred de Musset, François-René de Chateaubriand and Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, and is characterized by heavy dualism and morbidity, what gave him the epithet of "the Brazilian Lord Byron".
