Sor Juana, or, The traps of faith by Octavio Paz ( Book )
17 editions published between 1988 and 1994 in English and Swedish and held by 1,404 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

Libertad bajo palabra; obra poética, 1935-1957 by Octavio Paz ( Book )
49 editions published between 1960 and 2003 in Spanish and Undetermined and held by 834 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
From Book's back cover: Con el titulo Libertad bajo palabra, que define el sentido que da el autor al ejercicio de la poesia, se rune la obra poetrica de Octavio Paz, desde 1935 hasta 1957. En la poesia hispanoamericana de los ultimos lustros, Otavio Paz ocupa un sitio unico tanto por la fidelidad a la voccion como por el vigoroso leguaje con que suele crear su universo lrico. Nacido en 1914, desde joven empezo a escribir poemas, y muy pronto acrecento su prestigio hasta convertirse en uno de los poetas authenticamente originales de nuestra letras. Su verso, desbordado en imagenes cargadas de sigificacion, traduce una experiencia personal que, al relacionarse con la realidad del hombre y de los objetos, crea a su vez una nueva y asombrosa realidd. Tal es la mision de estos poemas. De ahi que no solo sean la confesion intima del escritor sino el conto del mundo y del tiempo nuestro. El amor, la muerte, el alborozo de los sintidos, la apreciacion del paisaje, la evocacion creadora del solitario, la vision de los objetos inanimados, el fluir del recuerdo, las contradadicciones sociales, la solidaridad con los demas, todo adquiere en su pluma un impulso lirico que es apremiante emocion, esperanzada replica ante la conciencia de la soledad y la percepcion del tiempo. Son temas que el poeta recoge de las literaturas de siempre, pero a los cuales sabe reconocer y revalorar desde puntos de vista hondamente poeticos. Pocas veces la poesia mexicana habia contado con un escritor que sumara, a la aventura de la imaginacion, semejante diversidad de asuntos. En Octavio Paz, con fervor y reflexion, se cumple de manera admirable esta coincidencia
