Castilho, António Feliciano de

 

Born Jan. 28, 1800, in Lisbon; died there June 18, 1875. Portuguese poet.

Castilho’s first collections of idyllic poetry were Letters of Echo to Narcissus (1821) and Spring (1822). The narrative poems Night in the Castle (1836) and Jealousy of the Bard (1838) and the collection Autumn (1863) reflect romantic trends. Elegiac motifs and descriptions of nature are characteristic of Castilho’s poems. Late in life, Castilho took part in the “Coimbra question,” a polemic on Portuguese literature, he defended the outmoded principles of romantic art against realism.
