The Hispanic Society of America Gallery Talk

Born in Nicaragua, Félix Rubén García Sarmiento, known as Rubén Darío, is widely considered as the father of the Spanish-American literary movement known as modernismo [modernism] that flourished at the end of the nineteenth century. Darío was inspired by Parnassianism and the French symbolist poets, in particular Paul Verlaine, and his works have left a lasting impression on twentieth-century Spanish literature and journalism. The outbreak of the First World War brought him to the United States of America and into contact with Archer Milton Huntington who, in January 1915, sponsored a poetry reading by Darío and a lecture by Alejandro Bermúdez, a Nicaraguan diplomat.
The anniversary of Rubén Darío’s death will be marked with a lecture by Dr. Alison Maginn, Associate Professor of Spanish at Monmouth University, and a small exhibition of manuscripts and printed works pertaining to Rubén Darío.
