Few characters in Hispanic literature have such a complex and influence as that of Ruben Darío.The work of this writer left a deep mark on poetry, but also on other genres that we do not always associate with him today, such as the journalistic chronicle, on which he depended economically for much of his life. Writer, journalist, diplomat and man of the world, he built a notable reputation as a bohemian artist and genius temperament, to which his own pen contributed many passages of a biographical nature. Based on exhaustive documentation, and avoiding fictional excesses and hagiography, this book allows a natural and complete approach to the person of Ruben Darío, in whose work several of the greatest literary movements of the 20th century are encapsulated, which on different occasions he foresaw and prefaced.
