ALENCA, Jose Martiniano d' (ah-lane'-sa), Brazilian jurist, born in Cearg in 1829 died in Rio de Janeiro, 12 December 1877. His law studies were pursued at Sao Paulo, and on their completion he went to Rio, where he became a frequent contributor to the journals of that city. He also wrote dramas and romances, some of which are based upon the Indian legends current in Brazil, and rank among the finest literary productions of the empire. In 1868 he was elected deputy for Cearg to represent the conservative party, and entered the cabinet as minister of justice. Two years later, when a candidate for senator, he was returned as one of the "triple list," but was not confirmed by the emperor. His reputation at the bar is one of the most brilliant in the history of his country. His poem "Iracema," and his romances of "Guarany" and " Urabijara," are the best known of his literary productions.
