Paz consistently suprises the reader with new ideas, form, language.
Nobel Prize Winner Octavio Paz is one of the greatest masters of Poetry and one of the greatest Latin writers of the 20th century.
I highly recommend this book to any one who already knows of Paz, and to anyone that appreciates truly great writing.
The translations are illuminating and educational due to the consistently excellent choices made.Published 2 months ago by M. Bailey
