"In this small, memorable meditation on Octavio Paz as a thinker and man of action, Ilan Stavans - described by the Washington Post as "one of our foremost cultural critics" and by the New York Times as "the czar of Latino culture in the United States" - ponders Paz's intellectual courage against the ideological tapestry of his epoch and shows us what lessons can be learned from him. He does so by exploring such timeless issues as the crossroads where literature and politics meet, the place of criticism in society, and Mexico's difficult quest to come to terms with its own history.".
