Emilio Castelar Y Ripoll (1832–1899), Spanish statesman, writer. Quoted in Doris Langley Moore, The Late Lord Byron, ch. 15 (1961, rev. 1976).
Moore commented: "The reader of our time would be more inclined to compare him to an inexhaustible Roman candle, or one of those rockets that goes on breaking out in varied coruscations and leaves in the air a luminous smoky trail, an acrid tang of gunpowder."
