MACEDO, Joaquim Manoel de (mah-shay'-do), Brazilian poet, born in San Joao d'Itaborahi, 24 June, 1820. He studied medicine in Rio Janeiro, and was graduated there, but never practised his profession, and was appointed in 1850 professor of national history in the college of the city. He entered politics in 1854, and was elected deputy by the city of Rio Janeiro several times. Macedo has acquired a great reputation as a lyric poet, but he has also written novels, and composed several dramas and comedies, which have been represented with great success in the principal cities of South America. Macedo is highly esteemed by the Brazilians, who consider him the most elegant of their national poets, his works include "More-ninha," a novel (Rio Janeiro, 1844 ; 5th ed., revised, 1877); "O Moco loura," a novel of the early stages of the Portuguese conquest (1845) ; "O Forasteiro," a novel (1855); "A Nebulosa," a poem (1857); "Cotie," a drama, "Fantasma Branco," a comedy (1856); "Luxo-e-Vaidade," a comedy (1859) ; and "Corographia do Brazil " (1873).
