Manuel Antônio Álvares de Azevedo (September 12, 1831 – April 25, 1852), affectionately called "Maneco" by his close friends, relatives and admirers, was a Brazilian Romantic poet, short story writer, playwright and essayist, considered to be one of the major exponents of Ultra-Romanticism and Gothic literature in Brazil. His works, heavily influenced by Musset, Chateaubriand, Goethe and above all Byron, were all published posthumously due to his premature death with only 20 years old, and acquired a strong cult following as years went by, particularly among youths of the goth subculture.
