NAVARRETE, Manuel Maria de, Mexican poet, born in Zamora, Mechoacan, 1S June, 1768; died in Tlalpujahua, 17 July, 1809. He studied Latin in Mechoacan, but in consequence of family misfortunes was obliged to begin business in Mexico. He entered the order of San Francisco in the convent of Querdtaro at the age of nineteen years, and resuming his studies was soon graduated in philosophy. Thence he went to Morelia and afterward to Igio Verde and Silao as a missionary, and was appointed parish priest of San Antonio de Tula, where he gave his leisure time to poetry. His first compositions appeared in the "Diario de Mexico" in 1805. The literary society called "La Arcadia Mexicana" invited him to become a member, and as such he continued writing under the pen-name of " Anfriso." His "Poema de la Divina Providencia" was printed in Mexico in 1808. He died as superior of the convent of Tlalpujahua, and before his death burned his manuscripts, but some of them were preserved and, together with the poems that appeared in the " Diario," were published under the title of "Entretenimientos Poeticos" (Mexico, 1823; Paris, 1825).
