Octavio Paz asserts Eliot Weinberger in his introduction to these Selected Poems is among the last of the modernists who drew their own maps of the world For Latin America s foremost living poet his native Mexico has been the center of a global mandala a cultural configuration that in his life and work he has traced to its furthest reaches to Spain as a young Marxist during the Civil War to San Francisco and New York in the early s to Paris as a surrealist in the postwar years to India and Japan in and to the East again as his country s ambassador to India from to and to various universities in the United States throughout the s A great synthesizer the rich diversity of Paz s thought is shown here in all its astonishing complexity Among the sixty seven selections in this volume a gathering in English of his most essential poems drawn from nearly fifty years work are Muriel Rukeyser s now classic version of Sun Stone and new translations by editor Weinberger of Blanco and Maithuna And since for Paz forever in motion there can be no such thing as a definitive text all the poems have been revised to conform to the poet s most recent changes in the original Spanish Besides those by Rukeyser and Weinberger the translations in the Selected Poems are by G Aroul Elizabeth Bishop Paul Blackburn Lysander Kemp Denise Levertov Mark Strand Charles Tomlinson William Carlos Williams and Monique Fong Wust, La palabra seduccion que tiene resonancias a un tiempo intelectuales y sensuales dice Octavio Paz da una idea muy clara del genero de atraccion que despierta la figura de sor Juana Ines de la Cruz El enigma de la monja mexicana es muchos enigmas por que escogio siendo joven y bonita la vida conventual cual fue la verdadera indole de sus inclinaciones eroticas cual es el lugar y la significacion de su obra especialmente de su poema Primero sueno en la historia de nuestra poesia cuales fueron sus relaciones con la jerarquia eclesiastica como influyo su condicion de mujer en esas relaciones por que renuncio a la pasion de su vida las letras y el saber esa renuncia fue el resultado de una conversion o de una abdicacion El libro de Octavio Paz es una tentativa por responder a estas preguntas La vida y la obra de sor Juana Ines se insertan en el mundo cerrado de la sociedad aristocratica de Nueva Espana al finalizar el siglo XVII Es un periodo en el que coincide la extrema decadencia de Espana con el anuncio en Mexico de una nueva sociedad crepusculo y alba La figura de sor Juana puede verse como un emblema de esa contradiccion y como un aviso de lo que seria la historia moderna de Mexico Los ultimos anos de la poetisa son los de su conflicto con los jerarcas de la Iglesia su defensa del derecho de la mujer al saber les parecio soberbia y rebelion El fin de sor Juana le recuerda a Octavio Paz el destino en nuestro siglo del intelectual libre en las sociedades dominadas por una ortodoxia y regidas por una burocracia En Juan Leon Mera publica en Quito la primera edicion moderna de sor Juana Obras selectas veinte anos despues en enMadrid aparece el estudio de Marcelino Menendez y Pelayo sobre su obra Antologia de la poesia hispanoamericana Desde entonces se han sucedido a la par las ediciones de los textos cada vez mas depuradas y los ensayos criticos y biograficos El libro de Octavio Paz recoge asi, Octavio Paz has long been acknowledged as Mexico s foremost writer and critic In this international classic Paz has written one of the most enduring and powerful works ever created on Mexico and its people character and culture Compared to Ortega y Gasset s The Revolt of the Masses for its trenchant analysis this collection contains his most famous work The Labyrinth of Solitude a beautifully written and deeply felt discourse on Mexico s quest for identity that gives us an unequalled look at the country hidden behind the mask Also included are The Other Mexico Return to the Labyrinth of Solitude Mexico and the United States and The Philanthropic Ogre all of which develop the themes of the title essay and extend his penetrating commentary to the United States and Latin America, Presented in Eliot Weinberger s excellent new translation with the Spanish texts i en face i this is the poem that definitively established Paz as a major international figure i Sagetrieb i Written as a single cyclical sentence at the end of the poem the first six lines are written again i Sunstone i is a tour de force of momentum It takes as its structural basis the circular Aztec calendar which measured the synodic period of the planet Venus days the number of lines of i Sunstone i But as The New Republic noted this esoteric correlative design does not circumscribe its subject It is a lyrically discursive exploration of time and memory of erotic love or art and writing
