Abstract
In this article, I analyze Rubén Darío?s essays, chronicles, and newspaper articles through the framework of the coloniality of power and the coloniality of knowledge developed by Aníbal Quijano among others. I argue that reading his political writings, we observe a subject with a divided consciousness. On one hand, Darío repro-duces Eurocentric thinking that characterizes coloniality and, on the other hand, he criticizes and questions such paradigm. To support my argument, I use the geopolitical divisions ?East/West? and ?North/South? in order to trace the Nicaraguan poet?s concerns and thoughts regarding Europe and the United States. In other words, I examine from where Darío thinks and how his positions align with or deviate from coloniality and de-coloniality.Keywords: Rubén Darío, Coloniality of Power, Coloniality of Knowledge, De-coloniality, Geopolitics, Divided Consciousness
