ITAPARICA, Manoel de Santa Rita (e-tah-pah-re-c.ah'), Brazilian poet, born in the island of Itaparica in 1704; died about 1770. He was admitted to the novitiate in the convent of Paraguazd on 2 July, 1720, and in 1724 took priestly orders. He was a man of very pronounced temperament and faculties, as well as an able and eloquent preacher. Although he did so much for the progress of learning in his country, he passed his life in poverty. The work that made his name famous is "Poema saero e tragicomico em que se contem a vida de Santo Eustaehio martyr chamado antes Placido e de sua mulher e filhos. Por um anonvmo, natural da ilha de Itaparica da Bahia, Dado a luz por urn devoto del Santo," which was translated into Spanish and Italian. Itaparica also wrote "Eustachidos" (1736)-"Urn Epigramma latine a morte do Rei Fidelisimo," "Urea Caneion funebre," and three sonnets.
