Poet, essayist, diplomat, and Nobelist Octavio Paz (1914-1998) believed that “to acknowledge the variety of visions and sensibilities is to preserve the richness of life” and ushered in a new era for Mexican literature and modern poetry. A gathering of Mexican and American poets read from his work, which spans 60 years of writing.
