Antônio Frederico de Castro Alves (14 March 1847 – 6 July 1871) was a Brazilian poet and playwright, famous for his abolitionist and republican poems. One of the most famous poets of the “Condorism”, he won the epithet of “O Poeta dos Escravos” (“Slaves’ Poet”). Most knowned in Brazil as Castro Alves, he is also the patron of the 7th chair of the Brazilian Academy of Letters.
There is no book on Castro Alves in English, although some attention is given to him by Samuel Putnam in Marvelous Journey: A Survey of Four Centuries of Brazilian Writing (1948). The major study in Portuguese is Eugênio Gomes, ed., Castro Alves: Obra completa (1960).
