Biographical Sketch

Alexander Lenard was born in Budapest. His father, a brilliant linguist, spoke a dozen languages. His mother was a painter. He was educated in Austria, studied medicine, and was awarded his doctor's degree at the University of Vienna. Between 1928 and 1938 he traveled widely across Europe, studying French, English and the Scandinavian languages. After the Nazi occupation of Austria he left Vienna for Rome, where he was active in the Italian resistance. From 1938 forward he supported himself by a series of odd jobs, including writing articles for literary and historical magazines. In 1952 he emigrated to Brazil where he practiced medicine and served as a translator at medical congresses. He translated Winnie Ille Puinto Latin after exploring five centuries of Latin literature.
