Excerpt:

 

Summary of Lecture delivered by Dr. Carlos Estorninho, Librarian of the British Council, in Lisbon, at the British Institute, Lisbon, on 3rd December, 1954, to members and friends of the Portugal Branch of the Historical Association, to mark the First Centenary of the death of Almeida Garrett.

 

The lecturer began by stating that whoever studies the life and works of Garrett finds them filled with reminiscences of England. Some of these reminiscences are purely accidental, others are due to the long years of exile which Garrett spent in England during the most crucial and receptive period of his existence.
