SAAVEDRA GUZMAN, Antonio, Mexican poet, born in Mexico about 1550; died in Spain about 1620. He was a son of one of the conquerors of Mexico, and married a granddaughter of Jorge de Alvarado, brother of the founder of the Spanish dominion in Central America. His favorite studies were poetry and history, especially that of his native country, in which he was aided by his thorough knowledge of the Aztec language. The historical data that he accumulated during seven years' labor were molded by him during a seventy days' passage to Spain in 1598 into his historical poem "El Peregrino Indiano" (Madrid, 1599). This work, which is now extremely rare, describing in twenty cantos the glories of the Aztec court and the conquest of Mexico, is rather a chronicle than a poem, and on more than one occasion has solved difficulties regarding the early history of New Spain. The Spanish poets, Vieente Espinel and Lope de Vega, praise Saavedra's work highly, and William H. Prescott calls him the poet-chronicler.
