Sor Juana, or, The traps of faith by Octavio Paz( Book )

133 editions published between 1982 and 2014 in 9 languages and held by 2,744 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

"In The Double Flame, Nobel Laureate Octavio Paz explores the intimate connection between sex, eroticism, and love - themes that have been a constant in his writing, from his first published poems to the great works of his maturity. Beginning with Plato's Symposium, he gives a short history of love and eroticism in literature throughout the ages: from the influence of the great cities Alexandria and Rome on the development of love poetry, to courtly love in Heian Japan and twelfth-century France, to love in modern novels such as Madame Bovary and Ulysses. Rich in scope, The Double Flame examines everything from taboo to repression, Carnival to Lent, Sade to Freud, Original Sin to artificial intelligence."--Jacket

Marcel Duchamp, appearance stripped bare by Octavio Paz( Book )

50 editions published between 1968 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 1,272 WorldCat member 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."
