Manuel José Quintana

Quintana, Manuel José (mänwĕlˈ hōsāˈ kēntäˈnä) [key], 1772–1857, Spanish poet. He held high government posts and was tutor to Queen Isabella II. One of the last Spaniards to exemplify classical style, he is best known for his patriotic odes, among them El Panteón del Escorial (1805) and A la batalla de Trafalgar (1805). Longfellow translated some of his poetry into English in 1833.
