Argentine romantic poet and journalist, 1841-82.
Fishburn and Hughes: "A poet born in Brazil of Argentine parentage. Andrade was a Romantic and wrote under the influence of Victor Hugo, from whom he derived a heroic vision of man. He prophesied the future glory of the American continent. He regarded San Martín as the hero 'par excellence'. In public life he supported Urquiza's policy of a confederation of provinces. His death was generally mourned, and a funeral speech was delivered by the President of the Republic. In 1924 a bust of Andrade was erected in the public gardens of Palermo, and Paul Groussac, Borges's predecessor as director of the National Library, pronounced a magnificent oration in his memory.
