Juan Nicasio Gallego was a Spanish priest and poet. He was born in Zamora, Spain, 14 December 1777, and died in Madrid, 9 January 1853. He received his training at Salamanca; entering into Holy orders, he soon went to Madrid, where he was given a post in the royal palace, being made director of the royal pages. His feelings as a patriot and his love for pseudo-classicism led him to associate himself with the coterie about the poet Manuel José Quintana, and to imitate the latter's metres. It is by virtue of only seven odes and elegies that Gallego is known. Of these the first was the ode, A la defensa de Buenos Ayres (1807), directed against the British invasions of the Río de la Plata. Another was his elegy on the death of the Duchess of Frias.

With intensified liberal tendencies, Gallego presented himself for election and was returned a deputy to the Cortes Generales. He had consistently opposed Napoleon's invasion of Spain, with both pen and voice, yet the despotic Ferdinand VII, after his return in 1814, imprisoned him because of his liberalism. During the second constitutional period, now free again, he was appointed Archdeacon of Valencia. The Royal Spanish Academy took him into its membership, and made him its perpetual secretary. The most famous of the few compositions left by Gallego is the elegy El Dos de Mayo, which commemorates the events of the patriotic uprising of 2 May 1808, by a few hundred Spanish civilians and militarymen, including the artillery captains Daoiz and Velarde, and infantry lieutenant Ruiz. The revolt in Madrid inspired a general rising in Spain against Napoleon. Gallego's words, urging his countrymen to resist unto death, are said to have had a major effect. (en)
  • Juan Nicasio Gallego, född 14 december 1777, död 9 januari 1853, var en spansk romersk-katolsk präst och poet. Bland Gallegos många synnerligen talrika oden, elegier och sonetter är främst ett ode, som trots en svulstig stil behållit sin betydelse och ansetts som ett av Spaniens främsta patriotiska kväden, nämligen El dos de Mayo, där de hjältar som fallit i kriget mot fransmännen 1808 hyllas. Gallego var en trogen klassiker och en skarp kritiker av romantiken. En upplaga av hans samlade dikter utgavs i Rivadeneyras Biblioteca de autores españoles (1875). (sv)
