Anastasio Pantaleón de Ribera - Anastasio Pantaleón de Ribera

Anastasio Pantaleón de Ribera ( Madrid , 1600 - February 27 , 1629 ) was a humanist and Spanish Baroque poet of Culteranismo . [ 1 ] He studied at the Imperial College of the Society of Jesus and at the Universities of Alcalá de Henares and Salamanca . He attended various literary academies, especially the Academia de Mendoza, [ 2 ] and according to his own confession, "I am a poet from Gongora ". He is the author of the Fable of Europe, various festive compositions and various harassment of academies. He was a friend of José Pellicer de Ossau and died the victim of an accidental wound that, after twenty months of illness, prematurely ended him; He had time before, however, to tell his mother to burn all his writings, with which some Notes to Valerio Flaco and others to Arnobio disappeared, as well as two satires, The Owl and El Ante Christo in imitation of Persio , Juvenal and Horacio . [ 3 ]He stood out as a humorous and festive poet and was a good master of the Latin language. Pellicer tried to print his Works in 1631, but the Inquisition in Spain collected the books and they could only be sold, suitably expurgated, in 1634; Francisco de Quevedo briefly alluded to this censoring process in his Perinola (1632).
