Francisco de Medrano (*Seville, 1570 - ibidem, 1607) was a Spanish poet. He entered the Society of Jesus and was ordained a priest in 1594.[1] He abandoned the order in 1602. His poetry was influenced by works of Horace and Torquato Tasso. He wrote chiefly sonnets.[2] His poems were published posthumously in Palermo in 1617 by his friend Pedro Venegas de Saavedra.

Translations[edit]

Two sonnets by Francisco de Medrano were translated into English by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. They are Art and Nature and The Two Harvests.[3]
