He was born in Mexico City on December 22, 1859, and in his youth worked as a journalist and was elected as a Deputy.

Literary activity and repulation

As a writer, he was a precursor of the Latin American literary movement of modernismo. Also a writer of short stories, collections of these include 1883's Cuentos frágiles ("Gossamer Stories") and 1898's Cuentos de color de humo ("Smoke-colored Stories"). The founder of the periodical Revista Azul, his verse, which was influenced by Gustavo Adolfo Bécquer, bridged the gap between romanticism and the contemporary movements of modernismo and Symbolism.[1]
