11 editions published between 1988 and 1990 in English and held by 1,248 libraries worldwide
Mexico's leading poet, essayist, and cultural critic writes of a Mexican poet of another time and another world, the world of seventeenth-century New Spain. His subject is the most striking figure in all of Spanish-American colonial literature and one of the great poets of her age. Just as Paz illuminates Sor Juana's life by placing it in its historical setting, so he situates her work in relation to the traditions that nurtured it. With critical authority he singles out the qualities that distinguish her work and mark her uniqueness as a poet. To Paz her writings, like her life, epitomize the struggle of the individual, and in particular the individual woman, for creative fulfillment and self-expression.--From publisher description

Essays on Mexican art by Octavio Paz( Book )
10 editions published between 1987 and 1994 in English and held by 910 libraries worldwide
This volume contains a collection of 14 essays by Mexican writer and poet Octavio Paz (1914-1998). Beginning with an analysis of Mesoamerican cosmology, these essays, written between 1960 and 1986 and illustrated with color plates, discuss topics such as Rufino Tamayo and other contemporary Mexican artists, realist photographer Manuel Alvarez Bravo and "two remarkable women," the surrealist-influenced painters Frida Kahlo and Maria Izquierdo. He also compares pre-Columbian Totonac figurines to laughter in Baudelaire or contrasts the portraits of Mexican village artist Hermenegildo Bustos with Egyptian sarcophagi portraits associated with the cult of Isis and Osiris
Marcel Duchamp, appearance stripped bare by Octavio Paz( Book )
20 editions published between 1978 and 2014 in English and held by 809 libraries worldwide
Octavio Paz claims in this essential work that the two painters who had the greatest influence on the twentieth century were Pablo Picasso and Marcel Duchamp. If that conjunction surprises at first, Paz makes a convincing case with his analysis and by contrasting the two artists. "I have linked their two names," he writes, "because it seems to me that each of them has in his own way succeeded in defining our age: the former by what he affirms; the latter by what he negates, by his explorations." Considering Duchamp's career and writings from his scandalous Nude Descending a Staircase in 1913 to his subsequent investigations, from his Large Glass and kinetic art to the Readymades and "physiques amusantes" ("comic calculations"), Paz offers a highly personal assessment, exploring the apparent contradictions and seeming enigmas with the insight and lucidity that characterized all his writing. When this book was first published, Publishers Weekly called it an "extraordinary and indispensable book" and said: "Paz may have come closer to Duchamp's essence as a philosopher of spiritual freedom than any critic to date."
