QUICK LIT BITE OF THE DAY

Octavio Paz-was a Mexican writer, poet, and diplomat, and the winner of the 1990 Nobel Prize for Literature. A prolific author and poet, Paz published scores of works during his lifetime, many of which are translated into other languages.

His early poetry was influenced by marxism, surrealism, and existentialism, as well as religions such as buddhism and hinduism. His poem, "Piedra de sol" ("Sunstone"), written in 1957, was praised as a "magnificent" example of surrealist poetry in the presentation speech of his Nobel Prize. His later poetry dealt with love and eroticism, the nature of time, and Buddhism.
