Herrera, Fernando de (1534-1597), a Spanish poet, commonly called "El Divino," was born at Seville. His style was formed on classic and Italian models, and his works consist chiefly of odes and love poems. He also wrote much in prose, but several of his works are lost. There are two editions of his poems (1581 and 1619), but they are seldom to be met with. Among his prose works is a narrative of the wars of Cyprus.
