Manuel María Palacios Bravo

Manuel María Palacios Bravo (Cuenca, 1891 – 1960) was an Ecuadorian poet and priest. His best known poems include: Jesús Campesino (1919), Chabita (1922), and Cantos de ayer (1953). He was a member of the Ecuadorian Academy of Language. In 1957, the University of Cuenca released a collection of his poems selected by Rigoberto Cordero y León.

Uncertainty of the year in which he died

Palacios died between 1960 and 1976, according to the Ecuadorian Academy of Language and the House of Ecuadorian Culture. While the Academy uses “1960 or 1976,” the House of Ecuadorian Culture uses “1960” in some places and “1970” and “1976?” in others. To figure out when he actually died, more investigation is needed.
