Biographical Note

Born in Vera Cruz, Mexico and educated in Madrid, Spain, Manuel Eduardo de Gorostiza (1789-1851) was a dramatist and official in the Mexican government. Gorostiza entered the Spanish guard as a cadet in 1803 and left the service in 1814 at the rank of lieutenant colonel to devote his time to literary work. In 1823, he was banished to England, but returned to Mexico in 1833 where he was elected Deputy to the National Congress that same year. He went on to serve as Secretary of the Treasury in 1838, Secretary of Foreign Relations in 1839, and Envoy Extraordinary to the United States in 1844. During the Mexican-American War, Gorostiza fought in the Battle of Churubusco (1847). After the war, he became interested in education and was named director of the Mexican National Theatre. His dramatic works include Tal para Cual (1820), Las Costumbres de Antafio (1820), Don Dieguito (1820) and Contigo Pan y Cebolla (1833).
