Description

This study explores the indigenous presence in the works of Ruben Dario, one of the most important and influential literary figures in the Spanish-speaking world. The work uncovers indigenous thematic, symbolic, mythological, and stylistic influences in Dario's poetry, and reveals his deep social concerns along with the deep duality of his poetic inspiration, both European and Amerindian.
