Ruben Dario


Nicaraguan writer, one of the greatest poets of the Spanish language; author of "Cantos de Vida y Esperanza," in 1905, considered by some to be his masterpiece and "Poema del otono," (Poem of Autumn) in 1910, considered by others to be his finest work. He published verses while still a child and after several years as a journalist in Chile, he returned to Nicaragua in 1889. His first noted collection of verse and prose was "Azul" released in 1888. In 1898 he returned to Europe as a journalist and from 1908 he held the position of Nicaraguan's minister to Spain. Holding the position of diplomatic, consular and journalistic posts in various countries and cities, Dario was seldom in his native land. During one visit to New York he became seriously ill in 1915 and returned home to Leon where he later died.

Dario married in 1889 to Rafaela Contreras; she passed away in 1892. He took to heavy drinking and a subsequent marriage ended in divorce. He died 1/18/1916, one week after his 49th birthday, in Leon. Cirrhosis has been cited as the cause of death.
