The Collected Poems of Octavio Paz, 1957-1987: Bilingual Edition

The Collected Poems of Octavio Paz, 1957-1987: Bilingual Edition

"In the canon of great Latin poets and writers, Octavio Paz (1914-1998) is no slouch. He shares the throne with the likes of Pablo Neruda, Gabriela Mistral, Manoel de Barros, and Jorge Luis Borges - influenced  by Spanish writers including Gerardo Diego, Juan Ramón Jiménez, and Antonio Machado. Like his contemporaries, his poetry and thought are multifaceted,  and include (but certainly not limited to) hints of Marxism, surrealism, existentialism, Buddhism, and Hinduism. This book, The Collected Poems of Octavio Paz, reflects his diversity of thought, strength of intellect, and his mastery of letters. For those who treasure Latin poetry, this book will be well worth your time."
