Exploring the canon of fellow poets and writers, Mexican poet, writer, diplomat, and 1990 Nobel Laureate Octavio Paz reveals a great deal about himself. The 16 essays that form On Poets and Poetry are read by the classically-trained actor and three-time AudioFile Earphones Award-winner Paul Michael Garcia, who delivers them with respect and clarity, doing full justice to Paz’s insights into the works of, among others, Walt Whitman, José Ortega y Gasset, and Alexander Solzhenitsyn. The result is a unique slice of autobiography created through the use of the lives and works of others.
A collection of essays by the Nobel Prize-winning author discusses Robert Frost, Walt Whitman, William Carlos Williams, Baudelaire, Jean Paul Sartre, Luis Bunuel, and Alexander Solzhenitsyn, among other fellow poets and writers.
