The labyrinth of solitude: life and thought in Mexico by Octavio Paz( Book )

375 editions published between 1950 and 2016 in 8 languages and held by 5,630 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the major poets of our time here probes and defines Mexican character and culture in a series of essays. Silence, irony, the formalization of social life -- these are the masks that permit the Mexican to conceal his personality. Far more than an interpretation of his own country alone, this book is also a penetrating commentary on the plight of Latin America today as a whole, an enlightening view of the North American -- "who wanders in an abstract world of machines, fellow citizens, and moral precepts" -- and a universally applicable evaluation of the situation of contemporary man." [Back cover]

12 editions published between 1988 and 1990 in English and Spanish and held by 1,239 WorldCat member 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 905 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Octavio Paz probes the mystery of pre-Columbian art--it's 'otherness', its unique concept of time--and connects it to the ideas of Baudelaire and Nietzsche. He tells the estory of Hermenegildo Bustos, a self-taught painter in a remote Mexican village, and compares his work to the sarcophagi portraits of the Egyptian Fayum. He demonstrates how the Mexican muralists--Rivera, Siqueiros, Orozco--were influenced by European Cubism, Fauvism, Expressionism, and how they in turn influenced American painters, Gorky, Rothko, Pollock. The abstract art of Tamayo evokes for him the music of Bela Bartók, and the canvases of María Izquierdo suggest the poetry of Apollinaire. In these fourteen wide-ranging essays, Paz makes art, philosophy, religion, and the history of the world converge as he celebrates the richness of Mexico"--Publisher's description, p. [2] of dust jacket
