From The Washington Post's Book World/washingtonpost.com
Next to Borges, the Nicaraguan Ruben Dario (1867-1916) is perhaps Latin America's most cosmopolitan writer. But unlike Borges, Dario -- a cosmopolite who doesn't travel well -- remains mostly unknown outside the Spanish-reading world. Although his lack of success in translation is usually blamed on the difficulty of recasting his ornate, highly stylized verse, it surely has as much to do with the ambiguous nature of his achievement. Universally credited (a credit that he basked in) with liberating Spanish-language poetry from the declamatory Romanticism of his immediate predecessors, Dario became famous for innovations that, in the broader context of late 19th-century European and American literature, were no innovations at all. When placed next to that of Mallarme or...

Book Description
In 1916, famous poet Rubén Darío passed a victim of alcohol. His verses swept away the old lyrical norms that were still being used in both sides of the Atlantic. Through long and rigorous investigations, renowned biographer Ian Gibson tells us the truth about Darío’s tormented and fascinating life. Description in Spanish: En 1916 fallece en su Nicaragua natal - víctima del alcohol, el poeta más famoso del mundo de habla española. Tenía 49 años. Nadie había cantado como Rubén Darío la promavera y el erotismo, la angustia ante lo desconocido y el terror a la muerte. Y sus versos barrieron las viejas normas líricas que todavía imperaban a ambos lados del Atlántico. La Generación del 27 estaría profundamente en deuda con él, sobre...

From Booklist
Born in Nicaragua, considered a key player in the Spanish modernist movement, and acknowledged as an influence on many Hispanic poets, Dario has nonetheless been rarely translated into English. This bilingual collection surely will fill an overdue gap in Hispanic literature. Beyond that, Dario's work is multifaceted and thought provoking. It should appeal to those who admire Lorca, Vallejo, and Neruda, although Dario's style is a bit less lyrical, at least in translation. Many poems in the book praise and criticize artists, biblical figures, mythic creatures, literary characters, presidents, and kings. Themes include bearing witness to pain with the hope for transcendence, strong spirituality tied to a pagan connection to nature, and underneath, a Christian sensibility, a mythological sense of good versus evil, and a...
