Readers will marvel at Paz's variety: haiku-like miniatures; the tempestuous book-length poem 'Sunstone'; fast-moving prose poems; abstract odes; extended descriptions of places in Mexico, India, Afghanistan, and Japan.” (Publishers Weekly)
That rarity, an authoritative translation that should get sustained U.S. attention, and that often sounds right read aloud.” (Publishers Weekly)
"[Paz] believed in poetry's ability to cleanse our perception, free us from clichés of the mind and the body, and intensify experience."” (Bookslut)
The pleasure of this volume is the consistent, almost gentle voice that lays out for the reader Paz's convictions and questions. 'Gentle' though should not indicate easy of peaceful or unquestioning. Paz raises his anxieties, doubts, and disruptions. Rather it is the artfulness with which he does so that carries the reader along.” (Three Percent)
