Named in memory of Ruben DarĂ­o (1867-1916), pseudonym of Felix Ruben Garcia Sarmiento, Nicara-guan poet, journalist and diplomat who became a leader of the Spanish-American literary movement known as Modernism. Dario's poetry is notable for its remarkable musicality, grace and sonority, and he is indeed widely considered one of the greatest poets who ever wrote in Spanish.
