About this Item
- Octavio Paz Symposium
- Octavio Paz (1914-1998) was a world-famous poet, writer and essayist. His writing, which garnered him the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1990, has been characterized as impassioned and marked with sensuous intelligence and humanistic integrity. A two-hour symposium, "A Tribute to Octavio Paz," was sponsored by the Library's Hispanic Division and the Poetry Office, in cooperation with the Mexican Cultural Institute of Washington, D.C. Featured speakers include distinguished writers and scholars Enrico Mario Santi of the University of Kentucky, Yvon Grenier of St. Francis Xavier University in Nova Scotia and Consuelo Hernandez of American University. Santi will provided an overview of the various stages and characteristics of Paz's unique literary style. Grenier discussed Paz's vision of politics and literature, the close relationship between modern intellectuals or "hommes de lettres" and political liberalism. Hernandez presented a talk about nature and the universe in Paz's poetry and his vision of language.
