Fernández de Moratín, Leandro

Leandro Fernández de Moratín (lāän´drō fārnän´dāth dā mōrātēn´), 1760–1828, Spanish dramatist and poet. A supporter of Joseph Bonaparte, he lived in exile in France after Bonaparte fell. Molière, whose works he translated, was his literary model. His plays, satiric and psychologically acute, include El sí de las niñas [the maidens' consent] (1806), for which he was denounced to the Inquisition. He was subsequently compelled to give up playwriting.
