Octavio Paz wrote some of the most remarkable poetry and prose of the 20th century.

Octavio Paz wrote some of the most remarkable poetry and prose of the 20th century. The collection of poems entitled "A Tree Within" represents one of his most memorable achievements. A remarkable diverse blend of short lyrics and longer, Whitmanesque creations, "A Tree Within" is definitely a collection that bears careful reading and re-reading. The book is richly studded with multicultural references and allusions-to Epictetus, Buddha, Gilgamesh, Jack the Ripper, the Aztecs, Don Quixote, and many, many, more.

Benn
Paz is the kind of poet who can answer interview questions about poetry and you don't forget them for years and years. He writes of the prose poem (a little naively?) "One has to wonder after awhile if the prose writer should give up and just write a poem." "Draft of Shadows" is an elegant, elliptical poem that gives a first reader the kind of framework one needs to understand him as a whole. On par certainly with anything Breton wrote, this is universally recommended.

Octavio Paz, A Draft of Shadows (New Directions, 1979)
I am kicking myself for having had this book in my collection for long enough that I don�t remember buying it and not getting around to it until now. Paz is the most exciting poet I�ve run across since discovering the work of Ira Sadoff five years ago. His work, more than capably translated here by Eliot Weinberger (with a few translations from others thrown in for good measure), is a perfect blend of the art and craft of poetry. It is also the finest overtly political work I have read since Aime Cesaire last put pen to paper. Paz understands that if the poetry is good enough, the message of the poetry will come out on its own, something nine hundred ninety-nine out of every thousand political poets never grasp. Those who would dispute it need only read the title poem here and hold it up against the best works by inferior political poets. The difference is stunning, and obvious.
When Paz won the Nobel Prize for literature in 1990, the committee stated that his writing was characterized by �sensuous intelligence and humanistic integrity.� Indeed. This is poetry the way it�s meant to be. **** 1/2
