Abstract:

"An Introduction to Octavio Paz provides readers with a valuable and concise introduction to the work and ideas of world renowned Mexican writer, and Nobel Prize winner, Octavio Paz. Written and edited by Alberto Ruy Sánchez, a well-respected and awarding winning writer whom Paz considered one of Mexico's best essayists, this book offers a comprehensive overview of the vast literary, intellectual and poetic legacy of Mexico's greatest writer. Paz thought of poetry as revelatory creation and activity, and Ruy Sánchez takes this idea as a guide for his book, as he unravels Paz's complex life and huge bibliography. For every reader who wants to look deep into the literary labyrinth of Mexico's emblematic writer, this concise and solid book proves an indispensable handbook."--
