1625 ca1684
a Spanish poet and dramatist of the Golden Age. Of Avellaneda's life little is known except that he was a canon at Osma Cathedral in 1669 and styled himself at one time "Censor of plays to His Majesty Charles II". He wrote mainly in collaboration with other poets and playwrights of the time, and is best known as an entremesista or writer of stage 'interludes'. In addition to his entremeses Avellaneda is credited with a number of other minor works for the stage including several bailes, jácaras, mojigangas and loas.
