An AnthologyBook - 1985
The renowned Mexican poet and critic Octavio Paz assembled this important anthology-the first of its kind in English translation-with a keen sense of what is both representative and universal in Mexican poetry. His informative introduction places the thirty-five selected poets within a literary and historical context that spans four centuries (1521-1910). This accomplished translation is the work of the young Samuel Beckett, just out of Trinity College, who had been awarded a grant by UNESCO to collaborate with Paz on the project.
