Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 11 Up-The essays collected here are intense and a bit esoteric but then so is the subject, so readers attracted to one should definitely find their way to the other. Bloom's introduction focuses on Paz's two major prose works: The Labyrinth of Solitude and Sor Juana, or, the Traps of Faith, but the majority of the 11 scholarly articles deal primarily with his poetry. This volume does touch on many of the versatile writer's concerns, from the nature of modern poetics and the influence of Spanish imperialism on the Mexican character, to the existential search for a new (nonreligious) form of holiness. However, the sophisticated nature of these essays, their approach to Paz's work, and the technical language they sometimes use (occasionally the writers stray into grad school/lit-crit jargon) will be a bit daunting to many teens. Serious students will enjoy the challenge of reading something this intellectual, and may find it a bit bracing if not downright intoxicating.
