Born in Nicaragua, Rub�n Dar�o is known as the consummate leader of the Modernista movement, an esthetic trend that swept the Americas from Mexico to Argentina at the end of the nineteenth century. Seeking a language and a style that would distinguish the newly emergent nations from the old imperial power of Spain, Dar�o's writing offered a refreshingly new vision of the world--an artistic sensibility at once cosmopolitan and connected to the rhythms of nature. The first part of this collection presents Dar�o's most significant poems in a bilingual format and organized thematically in the way Dar�o himself envisioned them. The second part is devoted to Dar�o's prose, including short stories, fables, profiles, travel writing, reportage, opinion pieces, and letters. A sweeping biographical introduction by distinguished critic Ilan Stavans places Dar�o in historical and artistic context, not only in Latin America but in world literature.
