Written and edited by Alberto Ruy Sánchez, a well-respected 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 proves an indispensable handbook.
