OCH0A y ACUNA, Antonio, Mexican poet, born in Huichapam, 27 April, 1783: died in Queretaro, 4 August, 1833. He studied in his native town and afterward in the College of San Ildefonso and the University of Mexico. He soon gave proofs of his love for poetry, and on 17 May, 1806, his first satirical work appeared in the " Diario de Mexico." In 1811 he was admitted to the Arcadia Mexicana, a society of poets, and he continued to write under the name of "Pastor Antimio." In the same year he wrote a tragedy entitled " Don Alfonso" for the Mexican theatre, he was ordained priest in 1816, and in 1817 appointed provisional parish priest of Pueblito (Queretaro). In 1820 he obtained the parish of Espiritu Santo. He translated many works from the French, Italian, and Latin, and wrote a comedy, " Amor per apoderado," which appeared in 1831 on the boards. His works, under the name of " Poesias de un Mexicano," have been issued in this country (New York, 1820).
