Julio Herrera y Reissig

Herrera y Reissig, Julio (hōˈlyō ārāˈrä ē rāsēkˈ) [key], 1875–1910, Uruguayan poet. He belonged to a family prominent in public affairs but withdrew along with his bohemian followers to an attic known as the Tower of the Panoramas. He became the Uruguayan leader of modernismo. The obscurity and preciosity of his verses and their fantastic, extravagant imagery show the influence of Luis de Góngora and of the French symbolists. His Obras completas (1911–13) was published posthumously.
