Due to their history , their identity is lost between a pre-Columbian and a Spanish culture, negating either. A key work in understanding Mexican culture , it greatly influenced other Mexican writers, such as Carlos Fuentes. Ilan Stavans wrote that he was "the quintessential surveyor, a Dante 's Virgil, a Renaissance man".
Paz wrote the play La hija de Rappaccini in The plot centers around a young Italian student who wanders about Professor Rappaccini's beautiful gardens where he spies the professor's daughter Beatrice. He is horrified to discover the poisonous nature of the garden's beauty. Paz adapted the play from an short story by American writer Nathaniel Hawthorne , which was also entitled " Rappaccini's Daughter ".
He combined Hawthorne's story with sources from the Indian poet Vishakadatta and influences from Japanese Noh theatre, Spanish autos sacramentales , and the poetry of William Butler Yeats. The play's opening performance was designed by the Mexican painter Leonora Carrington. Paz's other works translated into English include several volumes of essays, some of the more prominent of which are Alternating Current tr.
The Bow and the Lyre , Many of these volumes have been edited and translated by Eliot Weinberger , who is Paz's principal translator into American English.
Originally Paz supported the Republicans during the Spanish Civil War , but after learning of the murder of one of his friends by the Republicans, he became gradually disillusioned. In his magazines Plural and Vuelta , Paz exposed the violations of human rights in communist regimes, including Castro's Cuba. This brought him much animosity from sectors of the Latin American left.
In the prologue to Volume IX of his complete works, Paz stated that from the time when he abandoned communist dogma, the mistrust of many in the Mexican intelligentsia started to transform into an intense and open enmity. Paz continued to consider himself a man of the left, the democratic, "liberal" left, not the dogmatic and illiberal one. He also criticized the Mexican government and leading party that dominated the nation for most of the 20th century. Politically, Paz was basically a social democrat , who became increasingly supportive of liberal ideas without ever renouncing to his initial leftist and romantic views.
In fact, Paz was "very slippery for anyone thinking in rigid ideological categories," Yvon Grenier wrote in his book on Paz's political thought. An advocate of fundamental transformation in the way we see ourselves and modern society, Paz was also a promoter of incremental change, not revolution. There can be no society without poetry, but society can never be realized as poetry, it is never poetic. Sometimes the two terms seek to break apart. In , during the aftermath of the fall of the Berlin wall , Paz and his Vuelta colleagues invited several of the world's writers and intellectuals to Mexico City to discuss the collapse of communism.
The encounter was called The experience of freedom Spanish: La experiencia de la libertad and broadcast on Mexican television from 27 August to 2 September. Paz criticized the Zapatista uprising in With respect to President Zedillo's offensive in February , he signed an open letter that described the offensive as a "legitimate government action" to reestablish the "sovereignty of the nation" and to bring " Chiapas peace and Mexicans tranquility". Paz was dazzled by The Waste Land by T. As a result of this, although he maintained his primary interest in poetry, he had an unavoidable outlook on prose: Worried about confirming the existence of a link between morals and poetry , in , at the age of 16, he wrote what would be his first published article, "Ethics of the Artist", where he planted the question about the duty of an artist among what would be deemed art of thesis, or pure art, which disqualifies the second as a result of the teaching of tradition.
Assimilating a language that resembles a religious style and, paradoxically, a Marxist style, finds the true value of art in its purpose and meaning, for which, the followers of pure art, of which he's not one, are found in an isolated position and favor the kantiana idea of the "man that loses all relation with the world". All of them were not yet in their youth except for Salvador Toscano, who was a renowned writer thanks to his parents.
