Esteban Echeverría
Birth: Sep. 2, 1805
Buenos Aires, Argentina
Death: Jan. 19, 1851
Montevideo, Uruguay

Writer, poet and political figure. Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, as José Esteban Antonio Echeverría, he resided in Paris from 1826 to 1830. There he read and studied intensely several authors on literature and politics such as Shakespeare, Montesquieu, Byron, Schiller, Goethe, Hugo, Fourier, Dumas and Lamartine. He was particularly influenced by Byron in literature, and by Henri de Saint-Simon in politics. On returning to Argentina he introduced the romanticism in the country becoming a leader of authors and politician of the "Generación del 37" (Generation of the 37). Juan Bautista Alberdi, Bartolomé Mitre, Vicente López and Sarmiento, among others, recognized their intellectual debt with Echeverría. Due to his political ideas he spent the last years of his life in exile in Montevideo, Uruguay, running from Juan Manuel de Rosas' government. His writings include "La Cautiva" (The Captive), "El Matadero" (The Slaughterhouse), both considered landmarks in the history of Latin American literature, "Dogma Socialista" (Social Dogma), "El Angel Caído" (The Fallen Angel), "Manual de Enseñanza Moral" (Moral Teachings' Handbook) and several poems. Echeverría died in Montevideo and was interred in the Cementerio del Buceo, but plot information was lost. (bio by: Nes Pagani)
