Editorial Reviews

Choice - S. Miller

"Caistor's specific contribution is his analysis of Paz's poetry, essays, editorships, and life as a public artist and intellectual who refused to espouse doctrinaire political positions. Most interesting is Caistor's discussion of Paz's role as a internationalist never full acceptable to the Mexican Right or Left. . . . Recommended."
