Manuel Bretón de los Herreros (1839)

Biography

Spanish dramatist, who wrote some 360 original plays, twenty-three of which are in prose. His first piece, Á la vejez viruelas, was produced on 4 October 1824, and proved the writer to be the legitimate successor of the younger Moratín. His industry was astonishing: between October 1824 and November 1828, he composed thirty-nine plays, six of them original, the rest being translations or recasts of classic masterpieces.

He died on 8 November 1873, aged 76, in Madrid.

Source Notes

Sy Scholfield quotes from La ruta del Cidacos by Felipe Abad León (Editorial Ochoa, 1978), p. 483: "La partida inmediatamente posterior a la de Bretón corresponde a Manuel Tomás Herce y Montorio, que por cierto sólo se llevaba con su ilustre paisano dos horas de diferencia, pues nació el día 19 de diciembre de 1796 "entre las dos y las tres de la mañana", siendo bautizado el día 21."

(he was born on 19 December 1796 "between two and three in the morning ", being baptized on the 21st).
