Hilario Ascasubi

Hilario Ascasubi (1807 – November 17, 1875) was an Argentine poet.

Ascasubi was born in the back of a horse-drawn cart, in Bell Ville, Córdoba, while his mother was on her way to a wedding in Buenos Aires.

In 1821, he boarded a ship heading to France. The ship was hijacked and diverted to Lisbon. He escaped, went to France, and lived there for two years. In the 1820s, he joined the military and fought Brazil. He then fought in the Argentine Civil War, after which he lived in exile in Montevideo, Uruguay, where he wrote poetry and ran a bakery shop. In 1843, he published El gaucho Jacinto Cielo con doce números, and in 1846 he published Paulino Lucero.

He died in Buenos Aires of an intestinal problem.
