Reviews
Octavio Paz is such a masterly presence in the dialogue of Latin American culture that it is easy to forget he is first and foremost a poet. . .but a reading of this volume reveals that in the polyphony of his voices the poetic one still rings loudest and clearest.–Roberto Gonzalez Echevarria "The New York Times Book Review"
