FORNARIS, Jose (fornah'res), Cuban poet, born in Bayamo, Cuba, in 1826. He studied at the University of Havana, was admitted to the bar in 1853, settled in that City, and devoted himself to literature and teaching. His first volume of poems was published in 1851; a second volume (1857) made him popular throughout the island. A third, under the title of " Flores y Lagrimas," was published in 1862, and shortly afterward his " Cantos del Siboney," in which the habits and traditions of the primitive inhabitants of Cuba are described. "La Hija del Pueblo," a drama (1865). and " Amor y Sacrificio," a drama (1866), were his next productions. In 1871 Fornaris traveled in Europe, and in 1878 published in Paris "E1 Arpn deI Hogar," and later another volume of poems under the title of " Cantos Tropicales." He returned to Havana in 1881, where he still lives (1887).
