Daz Mirn, Salvador slv??r d?s m?r?n [key], 1853?1928, Mexican poet. Daz Mirn's life abounded with revolutionary plots, political quarrels, duels, and vigorous journalistic debates. His early post-romantic poetry was written under the influence of Byron and Victor Hugo, whereas his later verse was exquisitely polished and less emotional in tone. One of his poems,
