JOAQUÍN ARCADIO PAGAZA (1839-1918), Bishop of Vera Cruz, Mexico, was a poet of the
classic school. Many of his Castilian sonnets are much admired,
although he is chiefly remembered as the translator into Spanish
of the famous Latin poem Rusticatio mexicana by the Jesuit
Rafael Landivar (1731-1793), a work sharing, with Balbuena's
Grandeza mexicana, the merit of fixing the classical style
of letters in Hispanic America.
