A Tale of Two Gardens PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

A Tale of Two Gardens free pdf A Tale of Two Gardens collects the poetry from over 40 years of Nobel Prize winner Octavio Paz's many and various commitments to India -- as Mexican ambassador, student of Indian philosophy, and above all, as poet. Paz has considered his many non-fiction works on India to be, in effect, footnotes to these poems: from the long work "Mutra" (1952, here with a new commentary by the poet) to the celebrated poems of East Slope, and his recent adaptations from the classical Sanskrit. "No other Western poet has been as immersed in India as Paz", writes Eliot Weinberger in his introduction.

About Octavio Paz

Octavio Paz (1914-1998) was born in Mexico City. He wrote many volumes of poetry, as well as a prolific body of remarkable works of nonfiction on subjects as varied as poetics, literary and art criticism, politics, culture, and Mexican history. He was awarded the Jerusalem Prize in 1977, the Cervantes Prize in 1981, and the Neustadt Prize in 1982. He received the German Peace Prize for his political work, and finally, the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1990. Eliot Weinberger (b. NYC, 1949), is an essayist and translator. He won PEN's first Gregory Kolovakos Award for promoting Hispanic literature in the US, and he is America's first literary writer to receive Mexico's Order of the Aztec Eagle. He lives in New York City.
