MILANES Jose Jacinto (me-lah-nays'), Cuban poet, born in Matanzas, Cuba, in August, 1814; died in November, 1863. He studied in his native city, which at that time was poorly endowed with the means of furnishing an education. He showed a remarkable talent for poetry from his boyhood, but his first poems were published in "Agninaldo Habanero" (Havana, 1837). He then established his residence in that city, where his drama "El Conde de Alarcos" was performed with success in 1838. This drama made its author famous at once, and was soon translated into German. George Ticknor, in his "History of Spanish Literature," says that it "contains passages of very passionate poetry." Soon afterward he composed his drama "Un poeta en la corte." In the mean time he had published in the reviews and literary papers several poems, some of them deemed among the, best Spanish lyrics. He published " Miren Cubano," a series of social sketches (1842); but his reason began to fail, and the physicians recommended change of life. He travelled through the United States and Europe accompanied by his brother, but without any improvement, and when he had returned to his native country he was hopelessly insane. His "Complete Works" have been issued (4 vols., Havana, 1846; 2d ed., enlarged, New York, 18(;5). The second edition, besides the two dramas already mentioned, contains three dramatic works, five legends, numerous poems, " Cancionero de Tristan Morales," and other productions of less interest. Almost all his works have been translated into German, and many of his poems into English, French, and Italian.
