A Look Inside
Excerpts
Flap Copy
Through a political and cultural reading of Rubrn Dario's canonical works, Solares-Larrave articulates an innovative view of Spanish American modernismo as a cultural reply to Europe. The rebelliousness, political awareness, and cultural criticism that appear in Dario's prose make a sharp contrast to his traditional image as a writer blind to the political and social circumstances of the time, whose work was derided as escapist and shallow.
Summaries
Long Description
Through a political and cultural reading of Rubén Darío's canonical works, Francisco Solares-Larrave articulates an innovative view of Spanish American modernismo as a cultural reply to Europe. Unlike other studies of the politics of Spanish Americanmodernismo, which explore Darío's overt political works, this study looks for the covert, less evident political statements in his artistic literary and journalistic prose. Solares-Larrave demonstrates the cultural transformations of the time while presenting Darío's contributions to Spanish American literature as his reply to Europe, the cultural center of the time. The rebelliousness, political awareness, and cultural criticism that appear in Darío's prose make a sharp contrast to his traditional image as a writer blind to the political and social circumstances of the time, whose work was derided as escapist and shallow.
