Rúben Darío Prose Project

All of the works of renowned poet Rúben Darío are in the public domain. I've uploaded all of his prose that is available on wikisource (see link below) to be translated by the Duolingo community, with the exception of a few that were marked by the Duo bot as not being appropriate for all ages. I am providing links to the Duolingo locations for each of the articles below if anyone has an interest in helping.

Or, if anyone finds other PROSE works of his available online, please upload and share!

Thanks, I heard of José Martí and Pablo Neruda. I guess reading more poetry wouldn't hurt.

I love Pablo Neruda's poetry. Unfortunately (for us) his works aren't in the public domain yet. And these are all actually short stories by Rúben Darío. His poetry is also available on wikisource if you want to read (or translate!) it.
