Who was Álvares de Azevedo?

Manuel Antônio Álvares de Azevedo 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".

He is the patron of the second chair of the Brazilian Academy of Letters, and of the ninth chair of the Paulista Academy of Letters.
