Publisher's Summary

El nicaragüense Rubén Darío fue poeta, ensayista, periodista, crítico, cuentista, y diplomático. Se le reconoce como el poeta de América y tanto adolescentes como adultos de América Latina y España siguen recitando sus versos. Entre los más conocidos están "Sonatina", "Marcha Triunfal," "Yo Soy Aquél", y "A Margarita Debayle", Su cuento, "Huitzilopoxtli," que ocurre durante la Revolución Mexicana, describe la alucinadora brutalidad de la guerra. En Español.

Acclaimed by the intellectuals of Spain's "Generation of '98," the poems and fiction of Rubén Darío reflect a pride in his country and in his fellow countrymen - many of whom were living in despair and disillusionment. Darío, poet, essayist, journalist, critic, short story writer, and diplomat, was born in Nicaragua in 1867, and was deeply affected by the Spanish-American war. Included here are several poems - "Sonatina," "Marcha Triunfal," "Yo Soy Aquél," "A Margarita Debayle," and "Los Motivos del Lobo" - as well as the short story, "Huitzilopoxtli," which takes place during the Mexican Revolution and describes the hallucinatory brutality of war. In Spanish.

Contenido excelente autor sobresaliente

Lo procedente de Ruben Dario es lectura esencial para aquel que desea leer la cumbre de la literatura latinoamericana del siglo 20. Este autor representa un verdadero genio capaz de adaptarse a culturas diferentes, generaciones diferentes e idiomas distinctas. La calidad de la grabacion is mediocre. Lastima que no viene en calidad de 3 o 4.

Voz?

Estos fabulosos poemas se escucharian mejor si pusieran los cuales con la idéntica voz de Rubén Darío.

Too slow

Muy lento. Lectura hecha por algun sudamericano. Si te gusta la poesia tal vez sea una opcion. No pase de 15 minutos.
