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.
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.

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